Pillars of Eternity expansion already in the works

Pillars of Eternity will follow in the footsteps of its Infinity Engine forebears by supporting expansion content.


During a Pillars of Eternity AMA, Obisidian's Adam Brennecke confirmed an add-on is already in the works.

"We are looking at doing an expansion that's about the same size (area wise) of Tales of the Sword Coast," he wrote on Reddit, referring to a Baldur's gate expansion.

"I won't reveal much about it since it's early in development, but we've already have a small team working on areas and environments while the rest of the team focus on shipping the game.

"We will announcing more things about it over the next few months."

Presumably expansion content will be prioritised over the upcoming sequel.

Pillars of Eternity is due on March 26.
