The veteran RPG studio Obsidian has announced that the first of three DLC expansions for their hit game Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire will release on August 2nd. The expansion is titled Beast of Winter, and it will bring the Watcher and his party to the southernmost reaches of the Deadfire Archipelago at the request of the worshipers of Rymrgand, the god of cold and decay. They believe the Watcher is the harbinger of the end, and have beckoned him to fulfill that promise.
