In addition to the above, Obsidian sent word that the closed beta test has started. Here’s the official word:

Obsidian Entertainment, developers behind Fallout: New VegasSouth Park: The Stick of Truth, and many award winning role-playing games, along with publisher, Versus Evil, announce the launch of the closed beta for their upcoming, record breaking, crowdfunded title, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.

The closed beta will allow players to try out Deadfire’s new features, such as multiclassing and its overhauled combat system. Obsidian is committed to revealing new features over the next few months, giving those who opted in to the Backer Beta an early peek at the world of the Deadfire. Backers with access to the Backer Beta are encouraged to provide feedback, helping Obsidian make Pillars II an even better experience.

“It’s no surprise, but we love RPGs here at Obsidian. So, it’s awesome to be able to bring the beta of Deadfire to our backers this far out from launch.” commented Feargus Urquhart, CEO Obsidian, “Showing off all the new things we have added to Pillars of Eternity over the last two years is both exciting, and a bit scary. However, it’s key to who we are as a developer to find out what our backers think, and then using that feedback to make Deadfire an even more amazing game.”

The Backer Beta is available to those who pledged at higher tiers during the original Fig campaign, or purchased it separately as an add-on, which is still available. Backers will have the opportunity to choose either Steam or GOG as their preferred platform for the Backer Beta. Those who want to get in on the closed beta can still do so by adding the Backer Beta to their pledges on Obsidian’s official Pillars of Eternitybacker portal at http://eternity.obsidian.net/backer.

Sequel to the million unit selling Pillars of Eternity I, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire is a massively deep, single-player, role-playing experience offering the choice, consequence, and powerful storytelling that Obsidian has delivered time and time again. While players explore these depths, they will voyage across the Deadfire Archipelago hunting down a god to save their own souls.

Fans and RPG enthusiasts alike are encouraged to create an Obsidian.net account so they can become aware of closed betas, get access to content early, and other fun special events from Obsidian.
