Update by Brandon Adler, Lead Producer Hey, everyone. Big news today! The second part to the Pillars of Eternity expansion, The White March - Part II, is now available. You can pick up Part II for $14.99 or the Expansion Pass (which contains Part I and Part II) for $24.99 on Steam, GOG, or Origin. The White March - Part II brings an epic conclusion to the Watcher's story in the White March. If you need to get more hyped up, check out the awesome release video below. What's New?In addition to bringing closure to The White March storyline, The White March - Part II introduces many new areas, spells, abilities, and soulbound items. You can see some of these spells and abilities in action by watching the video below. The 3.0 Update is also now live. 3.0 introduces many new features that everyone (whether they have the expansion or not) can enjoy. If you would like to learn more about these features, just watch our Update 3.0 New Features video by heading over here. You can also look at the update's current change list by visiting Obsidian's Community Blog. Another important addition in The White March - Part II is our new barbarian companion, Maneha. Maneha meets the player in the village of Stalwart, where she's searching for clues about the Abbey of the Fallen Moon, a mysterious, ancient temple to Ondra. She's been a mercenary, a pirate, a pilgrim, and a treasure-hunter, but most recently, she's become a Giftbearer, a member of an Ondrite order dedicated to helping the faithful forget the secrets that haunt them. If you would like to learn more about Maneha, take a look at her preview video here. Redeeming the ExpansionFor those of you that may not have redeemed your expansion key, please read through this thread on the Obsidian forums. It will give you full details on how you can redeem all of your rewards, including the expansion. The key that you will be given is for an Expansion Pass that will unlock both parts of the expansion.

So break out your claws, fangs and check it out! That's it for now. Now get into the White March!
Update by Brandon Adler, Lead Producer Hey, everybody. We have lots of cool Pillars of Eternity news for you today. Everything from our Update 3.0 Beta to a last chance to get your very own copy of Lords of the Eastern Reach. Last chance at Lords of the Eastern Reach! As most of you know, Lords of the Eastern Reach is a card game from Zero Radius Games that is based on the Pillars of Eternity license. The game had a successful Kickstarter last year and Zero Radius Games is about to send the game for printing. If you didn't get a chance to put in an order, but want to get your hands on the game in the near future, there is still time. Just head over to its Backer Portal and make a pledge! Even better, if you already have an account made for the Pillars of Eternity Backer Portal it will work with the Lords of the Eastern Reach portal. Update 3.0 Beta In preparation for The White March - Part II launching next month we are putting out a 3.0 Beta on Steam. The 3.0 Update comes with a ton of changes, bug fixes, and new features. We need your help in looking over everything to make sure that the community is happy with the direction of some of these changes. If you are able, we would really appreciate that you opt into the Beta patch and supply feedback in our forums. As always, you guys are what helps to make Pillars of Eternity the best game it can be. Here is a small list of features and changes that we would like feedback on: The value/feeling of Athletics and Survival, both on their own and relative to other skills. Do any of the Survival bonuses feel way out of line with the other bonuses? How do Knockout Injuries feel? Are they too punishing? Not punishing enough? Do any injuries feel way out of line with other injuries? Assuming you like the idea of Story Time, how does it feel to you? Does it make the game more enjoyable for you, or does it just remove combat as an obstacle that you didn't like in the first place? Do you like the new Stronghold Adventures? Do you like the narrative elements of them? How do the unique items you get from them feel? Do any of the unique items seem out of line with other items considering their relative difficulty level (i.e., comparing Minor to Minor, Grand to Grand)? Do you like the presentation and content of the Stronghold Visitor Dilemmas? How do you feel about the setup of the scenes? Are there any dilemmas that you don't like? Do you feel like the dilemmas all give you a good range of options for resolving them? Does the combat in the last third of the main game (from Elmshore on) feel better? Specifically, have we removed enough battles that feel like trash mobs or filler? Have we improved the fights there so they are a) challenging and b) more interesting? The same question, but on levels 7, 8, and 11 of the Endless Paths of Od Nua. For a more in-depth look at some of the changes and fixes, head over here and check it out.
