As if there were not enough tantalising games on the horizon already, Obsidian is about to launch the first expansion for its excellent fantasy RPG Pillars of Eternity. Honestly, you wait three months for an interesting game, and then twelve come along at once.

Pillars of Eternity is getting its first expansion at the end of the month, and it will bring with it a whole new snowbound area for you to explore.

The White March – Part One's new quest-line is designed to take place around a throd of the way through the main campaign, when you've taken control over the stronghold of Caed Nua. If you like, however, you can come back to it later, at any point before the game's final encounter.

Finished with Obsidian's fantasy epic Pillars of Eternity yet? Well, get ready for another huge chunk of old-school dungeon-crawling, because the game's first expansion The White March – Part I is set for release at the end of the month.

The first of a two-part expansion, this new DLC can be played alongside the original game "whether players have completed the core game or not". It adds a higher level cap, artifacts, new companions, new abilities, and a brand new area.
