It's a silly question I know but how can I play the expansion? In the game menu it says the expansion is installed but I cannot find a way to play it directly. Is it only accessible from within the normal gameplay? I use the GOG version.

I think so. It's more content in the main game you can go to during the main plot after you get the stronghold (more or less).

It's not a continuation past main game plot.

 

Are there any requirements other than getting the stronghold? I started a new game and have the stronghold now but there doesn't seem to be a way to access the new content

My special compliments to the art team of the game! I decided to be a backer with one screen and after release Pillars became one of my favorite games of all times. And one that I love looking at and explore. Also would like to thank you guys for the constant improvements being made into the game. Pillars 2.0 is a better game in all aspects than 1.0 was.

Thank you so much!

Just a quick question because I made an odd observation: Is the game supposed to be 1.0.5.0582 PX1 Steam?

 

I'm a bit confused, since I was on 2.0 beta before.

 

No. The game should be 2.00.760. If you are seeing that build it is in an incorrect state. Are you back on the default branch? What I mean is, have you removed the beta branch and gone back to "none"?

The expansion adds additional content to your current playthrough. More areas, companions, items, etc. You can access it after you have finished the first major quest in act 2.

Just need to complete the first major quest in act 2. I don't want to give away any spoilers.

Yeah, thanks. It now downloads some 4GBs of data. Instead of the 2 it originally downloaded.

I'm loving the new features. I don't have White March yet, as I'm still playing through the first storyline, but the range distance indicators make this game even more amazing than it already was!

Good stuff. Kudos for the team, it's a great game, and I have great expectations regarding the xpac.

I, for one, will play it only after the second part is released. Not in a hurry, and I'd rather experience it in a single go.

Update by Brandon Adler, Lead Producer

  • You may now retrain your party members to modify their attributes, skills, and abilities. Now you can try out new builds quickly and easily.

 

It won't let me retrain their attributes. Is it only party members you make? Not companions? This needs to be made more clear.

Adra dragon by Polina, also went for Woedica ... couldn't get all three, that would be greedy.

Have a feeling I'm going to enjoy the rubber sleeve labels. I don't know why.

How do DVD players get the expansion/updates?  I'm using the digital download copy from GoG, and my wife plays the DVD copy, and I'd like for her to play the expansion as well, as well as get the 2.0 upgrade.

Woohoo! Definitely will purchase, but I'll probably wait for part 2 before I play. Mostly for the same reasons I like to wait for a full season of something to hit Netflix. I have to avoid spoilers like the plague but if I succeed I don't claw my eyes out mid season out of impatience.

 

Thanks Obsidian ;)

I'll have to wait for the expansion, but thanks also for the base-game update to 2.0 :)
