Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire releases in April

Obsidian Entertainment announced today that Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire will launch for Steam and GOG on April 3, 2018. Fresh off the announcement of the partnership with THQ Nordic for physical distribution of the title, we finally have a release date for the game that originally launched its crowdfunding campaign on Fig over a year ago, raising over 4 million dollars on a 1 million dollar goal. 

People who pre-order (or originally backed) any version of the game will receive The Captain's Footlocker, containing 3 in-game bonus digital items:

St. Drogga's Skull -The green flame of St. Drogga's Skull will not only guide you through the darkest reaches of the Deadfire, but serve you in combat as well. Crafted from a sabre and the skull of a martyr, this deadly implement will both slash and burn enemies in combat.

Beakhead, the Hawk - Beakhead, the white hawk, took a liking to your ship soon after you arrived in the Deadfire. Captains in the Deadfire are only as effective as their crew, and with this jaunty first-mate by your side, you're bound to find success at sea.

Black Flag - This flag is said to have been flown by a mysterious and rowdy band of seadogs from a far-off land, who dyed their sails black with a stain made from ground-up dragon glass. Dark and intimidating, but somehow attractive, nonetheless.

In addition to the pre-order bonuses, Obsidian has also detailed the contents of the various editions of the game. The bast game will be $49.99, with two additional higher tiers, Deluxe and Obsidian Editions, available for those wanting to have all of the extra goodies:
