    Obsidian have published the first Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire Fig update for 2018. Once again, it coincides with the release of a beta update the day before. The main highlight of the new beta is the addition of the ship system, including crew management and naval combat on the world map. But the new Fig update isn't about that. Instead it's simply a restatement of the recent release date announcement, along with the obligatory Katrina Garsten video, this time showcasing some of the game's graphical improvements. The surprise ending might be inspired by Alfred Hitchcock, or maybe by Realms Beyond:


    According to the update, Pillars of Eternity II keys should be available to backers on the backer portal now, though it looks like they haven't showed up yet. The next update, which will describe the new ship system, will be published in a few weeks.

    Gotta say the art and graphics people really took the visuals to the next level. By themselves a lot of these changes may seem subtle, but combined together I'm sure it will make the game world really come alive.

    Question for those in the know: Is PoE II going to be the first significant release of a game funded through Fig?

    Developer idles: doodle in a notebook when the camera isn't rolling. Then awkwardly hold it when it is.
    Graphics look nice.

    What the hell are you people going on about?

    This looks great? It looks like a low-poly 3D game with shitty low-res textures.

    Eye-candy. :lol:

    It's endlessly amusing how whenever there is a post saying anything bad about anything PoE you can expect to see a rating from Infinitron under it.
    The butthurt in this guy is amazing.

    Sorry bro, that's what 3D games looked like 7 years ago.

    Eye-candy. :lol:

    It looks amazing for an isometric RPG. What are you smoking and can I have some?

    I wish I could say the same about your posts under anything non-bad about PoE, which are just boring.

    It's an update about PoE2's visual flair improvements over the previous game. "Eye candy" is a correct description, regardless of whether you're impressed by the overall level of graphical quality. New particle effects in a Spiderweb Software sequel would also be eye candy.

    I barely give any attention to this piece of shit and its sequel. But yeah, I bet it's boring to get so butthurt whenever there's anything bad said about your favorite shit game and favorite shit developer.

    Pillars was borderline unreadable with standard party 2 casters and semi transparent effects. Imagine this:

    If I'm not mistaken, the effects in Deadfire go almost fully transparent if you pause.
