  1. Hi! Our event was held on November 9th-10th this year where we were able to raise over $10,000 for the Children's Hospital of Orange County between our internal charity auction and from donations given during the stream from viewers. It was a very good year, and we'll absolutely be doing it again next year. You can watch this year's stream as a VOD on our Twitch channel.
  2. Hi all! I made some edits to the post to better organize it and be more clear on what issues were fixed with this patch. There is just a hotfix patch and we do have another one coming, so if you have issues that are here and they haven't been reported yet, please let us know. If your issues have already been reported, we'll have a list of what to expect in the next patch out to you all as soon as we nail down everything that will be going in. We appreciate you patience and hope you enjoy the game!

  6. Hi, all! We're very excited to be able to announce that we are joining the Microsoft family. This is something that is huge for us and we can't express what this will mean for us and our games going forward.

  10. Greetings, Watchers, We hope that those of you who have journeyed to Harbingers' Watch have enjoyed your stay (and according to the Steam reviews, you have!), but there is still plenty more to come in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.

  11. People who pledged at the CE tier got a complimentary key on top of the one that was included with their reward tier. So I pledged an extra 20$ for nothing? xD Or you can reach out to us through support and we'll give you a refund for the $20.
  12. Hail, Duskspeakers. Welcome back to another Backer Update, and rejoice! We've launched three major pieces of content today, including our first major DLC - "Beast of Winter". Check out the trailer below: Of course, none of this would have been possible without our incredible DLC team, which will continue to push new boundaries for players in "Beast of Winter" and other upcoming DLC's. We interrupted their busy lives for a few moments to catch a glimpse of what it means to work on Deadfire's DLC in our newest Update video below, so take a look! See what Rymrgand's Harbingers hav

  18. Today is the day, Watchers! It's been nearly 17 months since we launched our Fig campaign and showed: Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire to you all for the first time. This is our first sequel to one of our own titles – and our first followup in a series. We've learned so much and been able to improve so much, thanks to your help. We couldn't have imagined that the response to the announcement of Deadfire would be what it was – you helped us fund the game even faster than we did Pillars 1! For that, and for your continued support, thank you. Along the way, we hit stretch goal after stretch goa
  19. Greetings, Watchers! We know we promised you an update that would focus on the audio of Pillars II, and you will absolutely get it... soon! Long story short, between a new baby coming into our Audio Director, Justin Bell's life, as well as finalizing the expansive game that Deadfire is, we've had to shift some things around. Before we continue, we want to congratulate Justin on the new addition to his family, and give a huge shout out to the team behind Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire who have been doing awesome work to bring the game to all of you in just a couple of short weeks. Since w

  22. We're supposed to get more information on the audio of the game in Update #46. ETA: Soon™. As we said during the stream, the audio update is being postponed to Update 47 since Justin Bell had a child around the original time of filming. Update 46 will be out soon, though!
  23. Hey everyone! It's been awhile and we miss you. So tomorrow, April 2nd, we'll be doing another Deadfire Q&A with Josh Sawyer! We'd love to answer your questions about general lore of the world of Eora, so let us know any that you may have (along with other questions of course!). We'll try to get through everything we can, but this won't be the last Q&A before release. See you tomorrow at 4:00PM PDT! twitch.tv/obsidian
