Development on the second part of the Pillars of Eternity: The White March expansion pack has hummed along quietly since the release of the first part back in August. The game has received a few patches since then, the latest of which added affliction immunities to the game, while the writing team have busied themselves authoring a new collection of short stories about its companions. But nothing earth-shattering enough to post about here. Today, just as people have begun to get antsy, Obsidian have published a press release announcing a release date for The White March Part 2 - late January 2016. Oddly, despite the fact that they have a host of interesting new features lined up, the press release chooses to emphasize the addition of a Beamdog-style "Story Mode" difficulty level instead. Guess that must be in demand. Anyway, here it is:

IRVINE, CA (November 16, 2016): Obsidian Entertainment and Paradox Interactive announced today thatThe White March – Part 2, the second expansion to Pillars of Eternity, will be released late January 2016, bringing players back to the snowy borderlands of The Eastern Reach.

The White March – Part 2 adds new content to the Pillars of Eternity universe, including new quests, new abilities, and a new companion: Meneha, the Barbarian. The expansion also offers players a higher level cap, and the new “Story Time” mode, letting players experience the incredible narrative of Pillars of Eternity at a faster pace. Directed by Josh Sawyer, Game Director of Fallout: New Vegas and Pillars of Eternity, The White March - Part 2 features an expertly crafted story from Eric Fenstermaker, lead writer of Pillars of Eternityand the co-writer of South Park: The Stick of Truth, and Carrie Patel, author of the Recoletta series and writer on the original Pillars of Eternity.

Pillars of Eternity, created by role-playing game (RPG) veterans also known for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords and South Park: The Stick of Truth, is a RPG inspired by classic titles such as Baldur’s Gate, Icewind Dale, and Planescape: Torment. Created thanks to over 75,000 crowdfunding backers, Pillars of Eternity has sold over 600,000 units, was released to critical acclaim in March 2015, and is #6 on Metacritic’s 15 Best PC Games of 2015. The White March - Part 2 completes the story began in the first expansion, The White March – Part 1, bringing the first epic chapter in the Pillars of Eternity universe to a close.

600,000 copies already, huh? It wasn't so long ago that they were celebrating 500,000. Those Steam discounts really do the trick.
