When will we get some confirmation of a release date for Beast of Winter? Only asking because it's July now and it should be released this month.

 

Cheers

Update 50 in the announcements sub-forum says its release is set for late July.

Before buying the DLC's, it would be interesting thath players know some basic features:

 

1 - How many gameplay hours has any DLC aproximately?

 

2 - Can DLC be played after finishing PoE2 campaign or only before (like White March)?

 

3 - What is the recommended party level to play the DLC's aproximately?

The answer to the second is that it will almost certainly be before same WM, for the 3 DLCs.

yeah i agree. 

 

It will 100% be the same as white march 

 

you will be able to go and do the expansions before the game is completed

 

It would be way to linear otherwise there not that stupid

I wonder how the map will work. Will they expand it or give you the option to move to a new one?

Dont know.

 

I just hope they dont end up cancelling the expansions because the game isnt selling.

 

Deadfire is selling incredibly badly for some reason.

 

It has dropped right out of the steam top 100

Do you have figures and facts to support this kind of stuff? I see this claim now and then but no evidence.

There have been a few people starting threads here insisting that the game is a bomb because of steam rankings. My understanding is that those are no longer very reliable after steam changed how it tracks sales or somesuch.

 

It had a successful crowdsourcing campaign. But even if it did sell less than PoE1 (sequels tend to see diminishing returns), all that matters is that sales met or exceeded Obsidian's *internal* targets and projections. Long story short, nobody knows — but there certainly haven't been any hints from Obsidian that the game was a financial disappointment the way there were with, say, Tyranny (not that that necessarily tells us much). Also keep in mind that Tyranny being a financial failure didn't stop it from getting its DLC, and that game bombed hard.

 

So yes, I'm sure all of the planned DLC will be produced (for a lot of reasons beyond sales profit). As for the length, I think one of the devs recently compared them to the Fallout: New Vegas DLCs in terms of content.

just go check the top seller lists on steam there is also numerous reprots about this on forums around the place saying it is not performing

 

Hey I love Deadfire and want it to succeed so they make a trilogy 

 

unfortunately all the evidence is pointing towards deadfire not selling

 

I have no idea why it is a great game apart from the unbelievably messy balancing issues ,terrible ship combat and very bad narrative and writing

Would be shocked if level cap increased. DLCs likely sell better if they have an impact on the EXISTING game so it will entice more than just the most hardcore of players. More classes, side quests, etc.

If the level cap increases they would have to make changes to UI as well and also invent some more high level abilities for all classes. I would say that's too much fuzz for a supposedly "smaller" DLC (than WM I and II). But I would be happy if they increase it and add some more cool ability stuff.

beast of winter is still winter theme much the same like white march i think? i really hope for more gameplay mechanics (new skills, builds, etc.) other than just purely story content. and here's hoping for mirke romance :p

I'd be surprised if they didn't raise the level cap like New Vegas or at least put in some new abilities.

I'm hoping they add a few new class abilities and also maybe increase the level cap while there at it.

The level cap can stay where it is, but new subclasses and abilities would be nice.

If I'm typing in red, it means I'm being sarcastic. But not this time.

Dark green, on the other hand, is for jokes and irony in general.

Still, it's weird we don't know anything about this DLC, less than a month before release. 

 

Nothing about level cap.

Nothing about location (fingers crossed for Naasitaq)

Nothing about new skills or classes.

Nothing about new companions/ships/factions.

Nothing about release date.

No anticipation, no excitement.

 

That feels weird. Was it the same thing when WM1&2 were released? Feels like there is not much to talk about, nobody is exciting or anything...

The DLCs are in Deadfire no in Naasitaq or other places. For see others places wait for PoE3.

There should be a QA stream this week, should there not? IIRC they said as much at the end of the previous one.

 

I would expect them to say something about the expansion during the stream.
