After several days ahead of the announcement of a new project, Obsidian Entertainment officially confirms the development of the second part of Pillars of Eternity. This installment will be a direct continuation of what happened in the first part and will continue the plot, allowing players to explore new territories and to delve more into this particular universe.

The funding target which is estimated for this project ranges from the $ 1.1 million to ensure your development PC. Also, there are up to 2.25 million destined to possible investors that want to participate in the campaign and to receive dividends by them benefits that can generate this title.
Apparently, Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire will have as main axis the statue erected under the fortress of Caed Nua, a nexus of the first installment. Apparently, an ancient deity will destroy our headquarters to leave our avatar on the verge of death and immersing it in a search for the salvation of his soul. As you can see, a theme similar to the Pillars of Eternity and that it will again delve into such mysteries.
