Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire Update 56 - Seeker, Slayer, Survivor and Patch 3.0 Release!

Greetings, Watchers,
Our newest DLC, Seeker, Slayer, Survivor, and Patch 3.0 are available today! In Seeker, Slayer, Survivor, Watchers will not only be able to tackle combat that challenges that test their penchant for destruction, puzzle-solving skills, and resource-management in the face of waves of foes, but also track down the mysterious malady that is plaguing the island of Kazuwari - and discover the island's ruthless purpose.

Seeker, Slayer, Survivor Launch

Prove your worth in the crucible of Kazuwari, where the arena's masters and their worshipers exalt the victorious and delight in the blood forfeited by the defeated. Something corrupts the spirits that dwell in the very stones of the crucible, and only you can uncover its secrets.
In this new DLC for Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire:

  • Seek glory, treasure, and truth in an arena designed to test the mettle of you and your party.
  • Slay your way through the most challenging foes you have ever faced, both past and present.
  • Survive the trials and whims of the spirits and their worshipers to prove you stand above even the greatest the Deadfire has to offer.

Seeker, Slayer, Survivor is now available on SteamGOG, and Origin, with Mac versions coming soon.

Scrimish: Pillars of Eternity 2 Pack

For those who might not be aware, we partnered with Nexci back in 2017 to crowdfund a Pillars of Eternity 2 version of their Scrimish card game. Protect your companion in this strategic card game while hunting down your opposing player's companion in this 10-minute battle of wits and misdirection! If you missed out on its Kickstarter run, fret not, for you can check it out on Amazon

Community Corner

The community spoke, and our developers answered! After the showcase of our last community item in Update #53, we released two more community-voted items below:

Shroud of the Phantasm


Hidden away in Berkana's Laboratory is the Shroud of the Phantasm! 

Nebula, the Astral Bat


It seems the community thought poor Cosmo the Space Pig could use a friend, so Nebula, the Astral Bat, is now available in-game! Careful when keeping this capricious bat around, however - it might be a pet, but it won't always decide to help you!

Versus Evil Sale


Our publisher, Versus Evil, is having a sale! In addition to Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire being on sale (tell your friends!), be sure to check out the Versus Evil Steam store page  to get deals on their other published games, including games from the Banner Saga series, Guild of Dungeoneering, and more!
