inXile Entertainment has confirmed the release date for the next post-launch DLC for Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.
The “Seeker, Slayer, Survivor” paid downloadable content launches on September 25th. Featured above, you can view a new trailer for the content.
The second of the three major DLCs, the official website explains how players are flung into an arena:
“Far from the bustling trade lanes of the Deadfire Archipelego, the most ambitious warriors of Eora gather to compete for divine favor. Face the challenges of Kazuwari’s Crucible and seek treasure and truth in an arena designed to test the mettle of you and your party. Slay your way through the most challenging foes you have ever faced, both past and present. Survive the trials and whims of the spirits and their worshipers to prove you stand above even the greatest the Deadfire has to offer.”
The rest of the run-down via the press release (along with some screenshots) can be found below:
“Seeker, Slayer, Survivor” is heavily focused around combat with a wide variety of deadly adversaries’ hell bent on destruction as players face down everything from dueling wizards to regenerating spiders. Based along three pillars of combat, the DLC will challenge Deadfire players in a new way. Choosing the Seeker, combat tasks players with looking for a solution to take down their foe, while the Survivor has combat that challenges fighting skills against waves of enemies, and finally the Slayer puts players in combat that will see their party go up against some truly fearsome creatures in a battle to the death.
“Delving into a rich story, exploring fascinating new environments, and unearthing powerful items are still crucial, but players will experience combat trials like they have never seen before as combatants in the Crucible” said Brandon Adler, DLC Game Director for Obsidian.
Add to that a host of additional bug fixes and balance improvements, Seeker, Slayer, Survivor adds an action packed DLC full of challenges, puzzles and deadly adversaries to take down.
Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire is now available for Windows PC, Mac, and Linux, with a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One version planned in the future. In case you missed it, you can find our very thorough review for the game here (we highly recommend it!).
