Obsid­i­an Enter­tain­ment start­ed crowd­fund­ing for Pil­lars of Eter­ni­ty 2 two days ago and has already com­plet­ed its 1.1 mil­lion goal. This was done in just over 22 hours. Due to being fund­ed on fig, much of the mon­ey comes from peo­ple who invest­ed into the game rather than just pledg­ing mon­ey. 

Fol­low­ing the game being suc­cess­ful­ly fund­ed, the fig page was updat­ed with thanks from Obsid­i­an and infor­ma­tion on the 1.4 mil­lion stretch goal. Obsid­i­an CEO Fear­gus Urquhard had this to say to fans, 

We. Are. Fund­ed! Thanks to the sup­port of all of our back­ers, investors, and our won­der­ful com­mu­ni­ty, Pil­lars of Eter­ni­ty II: Dead­fire has achieved and then exceed­ed its fund­ing goal in less than 24 hours, exceed­ing all of our expec­ta­tions. Our fans are the best in the world, and it’s thanks to you that we’re able to make games we love. Thank you so much, sin­cere­ly.”

The first stretch goal at 1.4 mil­lion has just been fund­ed. This will enable Obsid­i­an to include sub class­es to the game. One exam­ple of a sub­class is the Ghost Hearts. These are Rangers whose ani­mal com­pan­ion has died, but remains as spir­it to aid dur­ing com­bat. These ani­mal spir­its will also have dif­fer­ent prop­er­ties to reg­u­lar ani­mals such as being immune to Beast Charm. The exact num­ber of sub­class is still unknown, but they will be in the game. 

The next two stretch goals at 1.6  mil­lion and 1.8 mil­lion were announced today. At 1.6 mil­lion the game will be local­ized into Russ­ian and the lev­el cap will be raised from 16 to 18. This means that all class­es will gain new abil­i­ties.

At 1.8 mil­lion Obsid­i­an will local­ize the game into Pol­ish and include a new com­pan­ion. Xoti (pic­tured above) is described as a “mead­ow folk/savannah folk priest/monk”. She is a fol­low­er of Gaun and grew up on a farm in Dead­fire after her fam­i­ly fled from the Saints’ War. Lat­er she hears rumors of Eothas’ man­i­fes­ta­tion, but fears what it means for oth­er immi­grants. She will be the 7th Dead­fire com­pan­ion. 

Pil­lars of Eter­ni­ty 2: Dead­fire has raised 1.4 mil­lion and has until Feb­ru­ary 24 to con­tin­ue crowd­fund­ing mon­ey. The game has no release date, but will launch for PC, Max and Lin­ux.
