Pillars of Eternity II PAX West Panel - Seeker, Slayer, Survivor DLC revealed, coming September 25th

As you may have noticed by now, many of Obsidian's senior developers left the Pillars of Eternity II team after the base game was released, leaving the game's three DLC expansions to be developed by a small team of mostly junior employees. The newbies seem to have done a decent enough job on the Beast of Winter expansion, and perhaps as a reward they were given the opportunity to deliver a panel about it at PAX West yesterday. The panel is mostly about the creation of Vatnir, the expansion's grotesque sidekick, from his background and personality to his visual design and modelling to his racial and class abilities. It's a fun watch, but the real reason I'm posting this is because at the very end, Mikey Dowling unveils the teaser trailer for the upcoming Seeker, Slayer, Survivor expansion. It's releasing on September 25th (the same day as Pathfinder: Kingmaker!). Obsidian haven't published the trailer on their YouTube channel yet, but you can see it at 55:06.



In other news, Beamdog also had a panel at PAX West this weekend. With the recent departure of longtime lead Philip Daigle, everybody was expecting them to announce their next big thing, or at least some new Neverwinter Nights premium modules or Infinity Engine console ports. Instead all we got was some promotional portrait and voiceset DLC (in partnership with Wizards of the Coast D&D livestream Dice, Camera, Action - an obvious ripoff of Obsidian's similar deal with Critical Role) and some footage from an upcoming Neverwinter Nights Android port. Sad!
