So, with the Kickstarter we announced that we were going to do an expansion, and so how we're approaching that is to actually do the expansion in two parts, and have one part out sooner than the other part. The idea being that people are really enjoying Pillars right now and they're going to get finished their first or second playthrough within in the next two weeks, a month, something like that. And so, we definitely want there to be content for them to enjoy and I think we're going to be talking about that pretty soon. I don't think we've released anything specifically, but it really ends up being this concept of this story that expands parts of what you would see in those sort of old school expansions we made for Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate. So not just these three, four hour downloadable DLCs, but definitely big chunks of a story and a new hub to go to and things like that.So that's kind of how we're really approaching it, like we've done with Eternity throughout is this idea of, these games kind of went away but not for a reason they should have. The industry shifted to so much console with this idea that PC wasn't so much of a gaming platform, which I know no one thinks that anymore. So, back then when you got an expansion you got this meaty thing with hours and hours of gameplay. And that's really what we're trying to do. So, while we're splitting it in two, it is like one continual story that people get to play. The above quote is not entirely unique, I've read basically the same thing said elsewhere before. So it's unlikely I'm misreading it.The weird thing here is that Obsidian are contradicting themselves. I'll paraphrase to make my point clear:"These days most folks make a number of small DLCs, but instead we are going to do a big meaty old school expansion."...and then in the same breath:"but we're going to split it into two parts"Umm, what? It's absurd to talk about a big chunky expansion that is split into parts. It can't be both.Frankly I'm not complaining or worried as I have full confidence that I will be pleased with the expansion(s) (which I have already paid for). But you guys are putting out a confusing message. What's up? Edited April 5, 2015 by BrainMuncher 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
