Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire's first DLC pack lands in August

Revealed today during an official Obsidian Entertainment Twitch stream and on the game's official website, the first DLC content for Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire is releasing on August 2 for PC.  Titled "Beast of Winter", the new update will take the Watcher to a new southern area of the Deadfire where worshippers of Rymrgand, the god of entropy and decay, predict the end of the world.

The DLC update will also land alongside Patch 2.0, which alongside continuing to balance out abilities and QoL issues, will add a new Challenge mode to the game, a new sort of merchant ship, and the free "Deck of Many Things" DLC. Obsidian also released a very short teaser for the update, linked below. 

Beast of Winter is so far only available with the game's season pass or editions of the game that included the season pass, such as the Obsidian Edition. You can read our original review of the game here. Console versions of the game will be available sometime later this year
