Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire

A sequel to the successful RPG developed by Obsidian Entertainment. The story told in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire follows the threads started in the first installment of the series. Eothas, the god of renewal and light, comes back to life and takes the form of a statue buried under the protagonist’s keep. Although the stronghold gets destroyed, the main hero survives. From now on, he or she has to pursue a new goal, which is to hunt down Eothas as well as find answers to questions that can bring chaos to the world of gods and mortals. Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire takes the player to the eponymous Deadfire archipelago in the far east. In this new region you can travel not only on foot, but also by ship. While controlling your party of characters, in the classic isometric view, you get to explore different locations, complete missions of varying importance and fight with opponents met on the way. Note that the world of Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire lives a life of its own, and the choices you made in the first game have consequences here too. Some changes and improvements were made to the User Interface and dialogue system as well as the visuals, which now feature dynamic weather.

Plot

Considered dead, the god of renewal and light Eothas, comes back to the world and takes the form of a massive statue buried under the Caed Nua stronghold, which belongs to the game’s protagonist. Upon raising from the underground the god destroys the hero’s keep. Fortunately, the latter survives the disaster.

Mechanics

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire  is a classic RPG designed for PC / Windows. The second installment takes place in the eponymous Deadfire archipelago in the far east.

In-game locations hold many secrets and problems – some of the things you have to do before finding Eothas, is solving the conflict between the inhabitants of the islands as well as deal with machinations of trading companies and pirates. The game’s world offers multiple attractions and a variety of quests. It also lives a life of its own – people perform various activities and follow their everyday routines, and some of them can only be met in a specific place at a specific time.

Of course, in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire we can meet good, old friends, such as Edér, Aloth, or Pallegina, as well as brand new characters and creatures.
