Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire Update 60 - Patch 4.1 - Turn-Based Mode Beta

Greetings, Watchers,

Josh Sawyer cordially invites you to experience Deadfire in a completely new way through our turn-based mode, now live in beta form.

Accessing Turn-Based Mode Beta

To start playing in turn-based mode, simply make sure that you have Patch 4.1 downloaded, and then start a new game! A window will appear that will let you select the combat mode you wish your new game to stay in. Clicking the button with the question mark will further expand the nuances between the two modes or, you can click the image below to see for yourself!

Beta Feedback and End

As Josh said in his video, please send us feedback and any bugs that you might find! The team is much smaller now and we need to lock up our code for console ports, but we will definitely try to get to as much as we can. We will continue to take feedback until the end of February, so please let us know what you think!


Patch 4.1

In addition to our Turn-Based Mode Beta, 4.1 also comes with a variety of fixes and updates to DeadfireCheck out the full list here!

Console Update

With our Turn-Based mode beta going live, we wanted to assure those waiting for our console version that turn-based mode will also be included at launch for Deadfire's console release. Stay tuned for an exact date once we get one!
