Aren't the owners Obsidian? Do they not have control over this IP?

 

Obsidian owns the IP, but Sawyer is only an employee and is posting on his own behalf, not the company's.

 

Ah, I see. For some reason I keep thinking he was one of the co-founders.

Well....they need to get on that while the iron's hot. Right now there's momentum behind the PoE brand. Of course they need to take all the time they have to take to make a good game, but that's all the more reason to start early, right? ;)

No hope for engine update, right?

I would also like to know if there are any plans to make the expansion 'updatable' for the physical game samehow.

Will the individual stealth feature be available to those who have not yet purchased the expansion?

Yes.

The changes in stealth were part of the 2.0 patch, not a new feature of the expansion.

Sorry for the question but is the "normal" new content also available without The White March Add On and just the recent update for Pillars of Eternity?

 

Add On:

  • The White March - Part I takes place in the harsh, frozen frontiers north of the Dyrwood. Word of Durgan's Battery and its buried treasures (including Durgan's Steel) has made its way back to the Watcher of Caed Nua.
  • We have two new companions in the expansion:
    • Zahua, a scarred, drug-addicted monk who thinks pain is the true path to enlightenment.
    • The Devil of Caroc, a construct with the soul of a murderer infused inside.
  • The expansion adds in a special class of items called soulbound weapons. These weapons have powerful (and unique) enchantments that become more powerful as their wielder levels up.

 

Pillars of Eternity:

  • You can now set your companions to use AI so you don't have to spend as much time managing their actions. Each class has special AI packages that are unique to those classes and we will be added in additional AI packages in the future. The AI for enemies has also been improved.
  • Party members can now go into individual stealth. This allows some part members to be stealthed while other members are not. This is particularly useful in positioning party members for upcoming battles or sneaking by small groups of enemies.
  • You may now retrain your party members to modify their attributes, skills, and abilities. Now you can try out new builds quickly and easily.

Right?!

 

Thanks for your help!

 

Edit: I was right. Found the information with some research.

That's correct. I believe the increased level cap and new abilities are also tied to the expansion.

I would really like an answer to the question some posted, when we can expect the 2.0 patch for the dvd version.

 

And even more interesting would be the information, if it will be possible to get the expansion for the dvd version, because I don't have another and that would mean I can't enjoy the fruits of your hard work ;)

Is it possible for someone to share where the new map is? I think my update might have been bugged. I see the new intro and the new game features, but my max level is still capped at 12 and I cannot see any new maps.

 

I am half way through Act 3 in level 12 so the requirement for the new content should have triggered. Any help would be much appreciated.

March 2016 according to a German magazine, IIRC. Obsidian never Said anything official about it though.

 

Which German magazine is this, do you remember?

I was referring to this post, which in turn links to this article.

 

My German's pretty rusty so I didn't try to read the article myself, but Josh said on SA (usual link in one of my posts in the previous page of this thread) that they've just started on part II. Guess it is fair to expect it to take about 6 more months.

Everything's fine ;]

 

My least favourite change is this new intro with Obsidian logo. Previous was simpler and better.

 

So yeah, first world problems all over again.

So if you "won the game" before getting TWM Part I, in order to experience White March, you would need to start a new game from scratch?

No - you should have a 'Pre-End-Game' auto-save, right before the point of no return.

(Some people have lost theirs though - dunno if it's a bug or a careless delete)

(Also Trial of Iron players won't have theirs - but TOI is a 'no going back' mode anyway - can use the console to teleport if you feel that's unfair).

Tell you what, those guys (and I'm sure girls) over at DRKN do not mess around with customer service. 

 

 

 

Hi Michael,

 
thank you very much for your order! We can't tell you how happy we are that you picked out these items. Actually that's not true, we're trying to tell you how happy we are right now. We started DRKN because we didn't think there were clothes inspired by digital culture that were good enough out there. You make it clear we're not alone and that we're on the right path and we wanted to say thank you for that. Thank you!
 
Have you had the chance to play The White March yet?
 
We hope you enjoy the prints, quality and the fit. We do our best to make some top pieces.
 
If you have the chance we'd love to see you and the clothes in action! Use @weareDRKN on either twitter or instagram and we'll see it.
 
Let us know if you have any questions or if we can help you out in any way!
 
Sincerely,
Benjamin

I'm sure it was mentioned somewhere but cannot find any info on The White March part 2 ETA, can someone please point me in the right direction on this?

Also, is it ok to start playing part 1 before part 2 released? I might be wrong but I really don't like the idea to get stuck in the middle of a story while waiting for continuation...

The game plan is that White March 2 will be about the consequences for the way you played Part 1 - so no cliffhangers just more content more story reacting to your input.

 

(or so I heard) :) (ETA winter? spring?)

Question: are the gog/steam/origin version compatible with the DVD version or are we going to need a specific version?

Neither will work at the moment with DVD version - they are working on a plan to release it to DVD users - supposed to be coming soon.
