Pillars of Eternity: The White March – Part 2 coming Feb 16

Second expansion

The concluding part of the White March expansion for Pillars of Eternity, the unfussily-named The White March – Part 2, has a formal release date: February 16.

While I’d prefer Don Pilar for an eternity, the expansion, “not only adds new content to the Pillars of Eternity universe, but also allows players to experience the conclusion of the stories told in The White March – Part 1, bringing the first epic chapter of Pillars of Eternity to a close. Players will find a variety of new challenges waiting for them in the snowy borderlands of the Eastern Reach, along with new quests, new abilities and a raised level cap, and a new companion: Meneha, the Barbarian.”

A new optional “Story Time” mode lets you go through the Pillars narrative at an even quicker clip if losing dozens of hours to an RPG is too much for you.
