    The next game to receive an end-of-year development update is Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire. The new update coincides with the release of a new backer beta version yesterday. The accompanying video, featuring as usual the affable Katrina Garsten, starts out with a summary of the year's previous updates, but quickly moves on to a description of the major changes introduced to the beta. You'll be familiar with those if you've read our newsposts about the past month's Q&A streams, but this is a much easier watch. Plus there's a fun bonus feature in the last three minutes.


    Pillars of Eternity II will be at PAX South next month, on January 12-14. It's still unclear when exactly the game is coming out next year, but if we see some new content there that isn't part of the beta, perhaps we'll know it isn't far off.

    Behaviour sets makes me think of this. Which is a good thing, by the way.

    It would be nice if there were an achievement for controlling your party only through the AI settings.

    Dragon Age implemented it on CRPGs first. And I agree it's a great thing, specially with how many abilities characters have in Pillars.
