Pillars Of Eternity 2 Passes $3 Million, New Feature Teased
Funding wraps up on February 24, so the figure is sure to climb even higher.
The game needed just under 23 hours to raise its $1.1 million goal. As of this writing, Deadfire has attracted over 26,000 backers. Funding has been split almost evenly between traditional crowdfunding ($1.58 million) and investments ($1.49 million) from those seeking equity in the project (with Fig Game Shares). The campaign wraps up on February 24.
"Thank you, thank you, thank you to all our fans, backers, and investors for helping us reach the amazing milestone of $3 million dollars!" developer Obsidian Entertainment said in an update. "It's truly amazing that we've hit this point. We're now the campaign with the most backers in Fig history, and it's due to our amazing fans who, like us, want to make Pillars of Eternity II the deepest, most robust, and most engrossing RPG it can possibly be. We're so excited to be able to include companion relationships, which we know are going to make the game even more incredible."
Obsidian teased that it has a "big announcement about a really important, super cool, and heretofore extremely hush-hush game feature" to be revealed soon.
Deadfire builds on the mechanics of the previous game and promises to offer "truly living cities [and] more freedom to explore the open world." You can read more about it here. A PC release is currently slated for the first quarter of 2018.
