Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire will receive preorder DLC

Obsidian Entertainment have announced a global distribution detail with Versus Evil ahead of the April release of Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire and will be offering up some pre-order DLC.

The standard edition of the game will include three in-game items from The Captain’s Footlocker. These are St Droga’s Skull, a sword that allows you to hack through waves of enemies. There’s also Beakhead the Hawk who is an in-game pet that will stay with you through the game, and The Black Flag which can be placed on any ship.

The Deluxe Edition packs a bigger punch, however, adding all the above DLC with the official game soundtrack, another exclusive in-game pet, a Deadfire themed special item, and a digital pen and paper RPG starter kit.

You’ll also get a high resolution game map and Volume II of the digital guide book from Dark Horse Comics.

 

For super fans, however, there’s the Obsidian Edition which includes all of the above bonuses, while also adding the first three DLC packs for Pillars of Eternity II in the form of a Season Pass. And if you get the physical version, this will include a Cloth Map, explorer’s notepad and a set of postcards.

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire will release on April 3 for PC, Mac and Linux. And if you’re still not hyped yet, this trailer will surely help.
