Alright, so there is Standard, Deluxe, and Obsidian.

 

I have "Premium" Digital + Pillars II DLC. I guess that means I have the Obsidian Package? This is going by the original backing schemes.

 

Or is Premium a back thing unto it's own? Because I thought that backers would have unique bonuses not in any of the release packages.

 

 

Technically it still holds true. Just like you i have the Premium Digital and P2 DLC. If you look at the Obsidian Package they are only going to get 1 in-game pet and 1 special in-game item. BUT the Premium Digital backer edition says that we will get 1 in-game pet and 2 special in-game items.

Backer items and Pre-order items are separate. 

 

So Backers will be getting Fig rewards as well as the pre-order items!

 

For those who are only purchasing by pre-order will only get those 3 items.

Heh, day 1 DLC: Sea monsters and Ydwin! I'd buy it in a heartbeat, but I can hear the roar of disgust from the internet underbelly already, just by formulating this jokingly into a sentence.

If it's free do people really care? It's long old news that DLC originates from cutting the scope of the base game, but having a new scope in which employees who'd otherwise become idle can keep working on. Sometimes it's ready day one for everyone.

Happy about a release date, but isn't it a bit early? I haven't played the beta much, but from what I can see, it looks a bit rough around the edges...

Edit: In fact I am downright worried about it being released so early. They have made so many changes to their system - multi classing, stats that I reckon it should probably only be released late 2018.

For those of us importing characters from PoE I, will we be able to import our kickstarter/pre-order items from PoE I? 

 

Don't really care about Guan's Pledge (and I don't know how it would work in PoE II with the Endurance change) but I'd miss my Cloak of the Obsidian Order as well as my Miniature Giant Space Piglet and Tiny Obsidian Worm. 

 

I suspect the answer is "No", but it can't hurt to ask. :grin:

April is way earlier than I was expecting.

 

I probably get started on replaying the first to get my save ready. I mean, I could just transfer one of the saves I have already, but I can't remember which one's got all the stuff I want. So...

Dear. Obsidian
 
I'm glad to hear about the release date as a fan.
However, I am worried that Korean language is not displayed in official support language in steam store.
 
Rumors are circulating among the current fans, for the reason that official support language doesn't display Korean.
 
Questions that fans have.
1. Can we play games right on time for the game release date in Korean?
  - If it wait longer than your release date, fans will be disappointed.
 
2. Why is Steam Store not showing Korean in official language support?
 1613089a7db47d20c.png
 
- Didn't you officially support Korean language by attaining additional back sponsorship goals?
pe-2-fig-korean-g.jpg
 
 
3. Is it working on Obsidian Entertainment officially translating?
3-1. or not. Is it working on the Korean translation through other third-party companies?
 - If the third company is doing translation work, Most fans are guessing that H2 Interactive is the third company. is it true?
3-2. or. Are you waiting for the approval of the Korea Game Evaluation Council (GRAC)?
 
I would like you know clarify these questions officially.
Thank you.

Time has flown by, but this has been one of the shorter length crowdfunding projects of this scope from opening funding to release date overall I believe? Can't wait to play the game!

Well - they have had time - I'm presuming that they started some time back - possibly during White March development (way before Fig backing started) - after all they must have had loads of people sitting doing nothing in the office :) I am a bit worried that's it too early even so - they have been very ambitious and made loads of changes to the game. I would just want Deadfire to release in the same state as Pillars. (Pillars was not perfect and they made many changes to it over the patching schedule, but it was very playable.)

Greetings Watchers and fans!
 
We have great news today, so I'm going to hand it over to our awesome Community Manager, Aarik Dorobiala. Take it away, Aarik!
 
_____
 
 
Today, we are happy to announce that Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire will launch on April 3rd, 2018 and that pre-orders are now available!
 
There are three separate versions of the game to choose from: a base game edition, a Deluxe Edition with a bunch of digital goodies, and the Obsidian Edition, with digital goodies and the Season Pass. All three versions will be available on Obsidian.net, GOG.com, and Steam, as well as a bunch of other participating retailers.
 
When you pre-order the game, you will also receive the Captain's Footlocker bundle! 
 
This bundle includes:
• St. Drogga's Skull
• Beakhead, the White Hawk Pet
• The Black Flag

Now you might be asking yourself, "But Aarik, what if we already pledged on Fig and/or the Backer Portal?"
 
Don't worry my friends, we got you covered! For those who have already backed the game through Fig or the Backer Portal, you'll be receiving the Captain's Locker along with your crowdfunding goodies! 
 
"Hold on Aarik," you might also retort, "if people can pre-order the game on Obsidian.net, GOG.com, and Steam, when will we be able to redeem our keys?"
 
Excellent question my friends! We are actually working through that as you are reading this! We found some Xaurips messing around and causing havoc on our end,  so you won't be able to redeem your key right away. We're working very diligently to ensure you guys are able to redeem your keys for Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire from the Backer Portal.
 
Thank you guys so much for all your love and support and we look forwards to seeing you explore the Deadfire. If you have any questions, please comment below.

 

 

Please forgive me posting this here. Was not sure of the right place. I want to preorder Pillars of Eternity II but not sure whether I should order the Steam or GOG version. I have a MacBook AIr.  Thank for your patience and understanding. Go Obsidian!!

Are backers gonna be able to pre load on Steam? Thanks.

 

Also, I only backed to $29 tier, so I hope there will be an optional Upgrade to Deluxe/Obsidian edition on Steam
