Update #103: Update 103: The White March - Part II Release

Recommended Posts

Update by Brandon Adler, Lead Producer

 

Hey, everybody. We have a small update with a big announcement today. We are also going to do a spotlight on two of our new creatures from The White March - Part II.

 

Be on the lookout for our next update where we will feature our new companion.

 

The White March - Part II Early Next Year

 

We have some great news for all of you fans that have been waiting for the second part of The White March expansion. You can finish your journey through The White March with the second part of the expansion in late January 2016. Once an exact release date is decided on we will announce it in an update for you guys.

 

Vithrack Brutes and Luminaries

 

In the second part of the expansion we are introducing a larger slice of vithrack culture. Players will encounter brutes and luminaries, two distinct classes of vithrack. While brutes build and feed the colony, luminaries are its scholars and historians. Both varieties can be formidable foes for adventurers who encroach upon their territory.

Short Stories

In our last update we showed off our first short story, The Ratcatcher. This time, we have a new batch of short stories to share with you.

 

Blood Register

Available now!

 

Edér finds much has changed in Gilded Vale in the time since he left to enlist in the Saint's War. Tensions within the town boil over at a religious harvest festival known as Gaun's Reaping, and Edér is forced to take sides among neighbors and old friends.

 

Until He Started Screaming

 

To be released soon.

 

Novice wizard Aloth Corfiser is shackled to a patron he can't abide and an Awakened soul he can't silence. He finds unexpected allies among a student group of spellwrights, but what he learns about them--and what they ask of him--threatens the entire academy.

 

You can head over to our Short Stories page to download all of them now.

 

 

That's it for this update. In our next update we will highlight the new companion in The White March - Part II.

Brilliant work on the new Vithrack!

Vithrack.  Very dangerous.  You go first.

 

Vithrack.  Why'd it have to be vithrack?

 

 

Heh.  I'm not very fond of those suckers....

Enlisted? Is the bulk of the Dyrwooden army composed of volunteers and/or a professional force as opposed to a feudal levy?

For Eothas' sake, Obsidian, please create a scroll of protection against treachery !

 

Or finally make the fix to enable removing domination and charm with suppress afflication and liberating exhortations !

Writting these 4 stories has been a great idea. I'm enjoying them.

 

Have you planned to release more short stories?

 

Thanks in advance

Maybe I'm missing the joke, but they've already stated that the expansion is coming in January (in that very same update they opened this thread for, in fact)?

Yup I know, I'm just winding them up a bit :) Besides the devs probably don't have anything better to do. I'm sure they are just sitting around the offices playing solitaire. Edited by rheingold

Eh, jokes are fine and it's cool that you're excited, it's just not always easy to tell who's joking and who isn't on a message board.

Dude, don't you know what happened last time Obsidian rushed to get a product out in time for Christmas?

 

...Why is everyone looking at me like that? What, too soon?

Should we opt into the beta patch on Steam to have WM2 installed faster, or will there be a separate update in the main branch? Also, at what time is it actually launching?

When The White March Part I released, installing it on the beta patch actually caused a number of bugs, so I'd recommend reverting to the main branch and waiting for the official release of the patch and the expansion.
