'Pilars Of Eternity II: Deadfire' Record Breaking; Funded For Less Than A Day
Within just 24 hours, "Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire" has already reached its initial fundraising target, with the help of fig.co campaign. It already rose over $1,100,000.
It can be remembered that the first Pillars of Eternity had an overwhelming success. It's no wonder that Obsidian Entertainment, its developer, reached its desired target for the start up fund of the game.
"Pillars of Eternity" is a role-playing game. It was released on March 2015. The developer had started similarly with a crowd funding campaign in Kickstarter last September 2012. The game then received over $4 million which was the highest funded video game at that time.

The game then received a critical acclaim on its release. It even won various awards.
Because of this many players look after the release of another sequel. Hence, Obsidian has once again asked a crowd funding of "Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire."
According to PCGamesN, Josh Sawyer, the design director, has released a video to thank those backers for all their support. He even tease that the game will be receiving stretch goals.
The first would be subclasses. Players will then be offered up to two specializations in order to augment their character. One of the most popular subclasses at the moment is the "Ghost Heart Lodge" that will allow Rangers to summon an animal companion for use in combat.
Dso Gaming even added that "Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire" will take players on a journey to the world of Eora. This time it will be the vast, uncharted Deadfire where players will fight for their sake while they are about to hunt down a god.
Until then, more updates will be coming as the campaign is still ongoing. Stay tuned for more Gamenguide news.
