Whoa, whoa, calm down there. Let me sink a hundred hours or so into Pillars of Eternity before we start talking about a sequel, shall we?
In a chat, Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart revealed that a follow-up to the isometric fantasy RPG is already being discussed.
A full-blown sequel is still some way off, obviously, but there should be a nice supply of post-release content for Pillars of Eternity in the form of an expansion pack or two. Remember expansion packs? Sitting down with a whole new chunk of content to play through is so much better than paying a few bucks for an hour or two of extra missions.
"We're going to do some expansions because we said we would as a part of the Kickstarter," confirmed Urquhart. "We've already started working on artwork. So we've already kind of figured out where we want to go in the world and the artists are doing some tests."
As for the sequel itself, Urquhart thinks that it “might be a good time again” for Obsidian to head back to Kickstarter. Considering the massive interest in Harebrained Schemes'crowd-funding campaign, I'd say he might be right.
Pillars of Eternity is almost upon us. The spiritual successor to classic isometric titles like Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale drops on March 26.
