Having created a sprawling new fantasy world unburdened by tricky licensing issues, it's perhaps not totally surprising that Obsidian wants to take us somewhere new in the eventual, and already confirmed, Pillars of Eternity 2.

That means we won't return to the meadows and forests of the Dyrwood, the setting of the first game. Nor will we be revisiting the frozen North, subject of recent expansion pack The White March Part One.

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.

The White March - Part 1 takes players to the frozen North (possibly a homage to a certain other snowbound RPG series), and lead area designer Bobby Null takes us through a few of the environments we'll visit in this brief teaser video.

Meet ascetic monk Zahua, a new companion from Pillars of Eternity: The White March – Part One

I'm sort of disappointed that the very cool-looking monk Zahua wasn't a companion in core Pillars of Eternity, because he sounds like a fun character to have in your party.

He's from an order of ascetic monks called the Nalpazca, who are vaguely Aztec-themed and follow a very strict lifestyle dominated by ritual.

Pillars of Eternity: The White March – Part One will scale to your level

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.
