Hello everyone! We hope you're ready to do a bit of exploring. Bobby Null, Lead Designer on Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, will be our guide for a tour of Neketaka, the biggest city in the Deadfire. Bobby will not only show off Neketaka's different neighborhoods, but also some new features of the city. Come see what awaits you when you make your own journey to the Deadfire.
You probably can't wait to get your hands on more info about Pillars II after that video. Well, as the video says, we'll be back in a couple of weeks with a look into what Game Director, Josh Sawyer, has teased on social media, which is always fun and enlightening.
A Travel Back
The incredibly talented group, The Travelers, have recently done a cover of "Oldsong" from the original Pillars of Eternity. The arrangement is quite beautiful and we just had to share. Enjoy!
Backer Survey Announcement
We also want to let everyone know that Backer Surveys will be officially ending after October 31st. If your survey is not filled out by October 31st, we can't promise that your content will make it into the game at release -- so please don't wait to submit your Backer Survey!
(Note: While we will still accept surveys filled out after October 31st, we cannot guarantee such surveys will be processed in time for their associated content to make it into Pillars II on release. If you fill out your survey after October 31st, your content may still make it into a game in a patch.)
Thank you for joining us and we'll see you in a couple of weeks for Update 39!
Man, seriously the game looks even more awesome than what we've ever seen or expected so far...
The wind effect on palmiers is breathtaking, it's beautiful.
Really stoked by the Graphics in General, damn.
And you took seriously into account the feedback I gave back in the day, and I'm sure many others did, to make more quests like Raedric's. I think we've all agree back in Pillars I, that this quest was THE Masterpiece Quest in the game.
& BAM, an Archmage related Quest, inspired & similar to Raedric's Hold !! Couldn't be happier.
Cant wait! Scripted interactions are really fun i loved the ones in WM part 2. Also cant wait for mire archmage goodness i hope they are not just all villians but if they are a great side boss is always welcome
Great update. I know you guys had mentioned that the building transitions were streamlined for less loading time, but it was cool to see that when you enter a building, the load screen doesnt come up. Aloth pranks were fun also.
Second the thought of archmages not being villains. Would be cool if you could become an apprentice yourself (with varying success, depending on class). Maybe even becoming an archmage :D (best thing in Skyrim imo)
Speculating Aloth might have a quest/power up relating to Arkemyr tho.
The views far down are all blurred. It doesn't look bad only when you move. But when you stop and, especially, try to look there (as many would, because people like cool views), then it can feel somewhat disappointing.
Also, in some places the graphics look a little too cartoonish. Like the roof and windows of the mage's mansion at 2:50 in the video. I can't be absolutely sure but I don't think the majority of older players would prefer that. Although I understand it may be too late to change the graphics now. Not that it's game breaking. But it may still be possible to avoid that in the future.
