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.
