Obsidian Entertainment is preparing to release their first expansion to their crowdfunded cRPG, Pillars of Eternity, on August 25th. “White March – Part 1” will be adding new Monk and Rogue companions, a higher level cap and abilities, a new realm to explore, and artifacts.
The expansion also offers additional story content penned by Carie Patel and Eric Fenstermaker. Patel was a writer for the Recolleta series and Fenstermaker co-wrote South Park: The Stick of Truth. Both also wrote the original Pillars story.
Pillars of Eternity is one of the most engaging and well written RPGs of recent years with a very welcome complexity in its combat. The overwhelming response to the Kickstarter campaign already led to a wealth of additional content, but the new expansion aims to bring another layer of depth. Check out our review for Pillars and look out for our thoughts on the expansion when it releases later this month.
