Pillars Of Eternity: The White March: Part 1 Expansion Announced

Paradox Interactive and Obsidian announced the expansion at this evening’s PC Gaming Show. Higher level cap, new abilities, new multi-class options, and new companions are all on the way in the new addition.

Pillars of Eternity was a Kickstarted project that released earlier this year to broad acclaim, including my own.

With the main story complete, it’s safe to assume that The White March is dealing with a brand new threat to the fantasy world. While further details about the expansion are scarce, Paradox did announce that the expansion will add new rogue and monk companions into the mix. The expansion will also explore a new party-based AI system, but we don't know anything yet about what that means.

White March is described as the first part of the expansion to the game, which begs the question of what the second part of the expansion might be. Nonetheless, more Pillars of Eternity is great news for PC, Mac, and Linux gamers, and we’ll be excited to learn more about the project.
