6 Comments

The next expansion for PC RPG Pillars of Eternity, the second part of The White March, will launch in late January 2016, developer Obsidian Entertainment has announced. A specific release date has not yet been decided, the developer said in a post this week in the studio's forums.

Alongside the release window announcement, Obsidian has also shared more details and images of the expansion's two new Vithrack classes: brutes and luminaries.

"While brutes build and feed the colony, luminaries are its scholars and historians," it said. "Both varieties can be formidable foes for adventurers who encroach upon their territory."

well this new article format is the worst option Gamespot has made yet.

@Etagloc: wouldn't say "out of place". i'm sure they're expecting you to have already finished the main storyline due to White March's release being quite a bit later. you would already have most of the best items available so these new items would be stronger.

regarding the connection, a lot of old expansions used to be the same way. some new place or protagonist/antagonist shows on the scene and it's a whole new adventure. as long as the writing is good i'm glad to have them.

Am I the only one who thinks the expansion fells... out of place?.
really powerful weapons, and no real connection to the main story. Its not bad, just kinda whatever compared to the main game.

@snugglebear: I'd say wait for this expansion, since it's integrated on the main game and not standalone from the campaign.
