Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire: For Dungeons & Dragons Fans

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire – Obsidian is known as a game developer that is synonymous with western RPG games. Call it some games made by him such as Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: Sith Lord, Alpha Protocol, Fallout New Vegas, Neverwinter Nights 2, Pillars of Eternity and many more. After the success of one of the series, Pillars of Eternity, Obsidian has finally released a sequel. The sequel to the game made by him still comes with a Dungeon and Dragons-style RPG-style game. The style adopted by this RPG game is reminiscent of several titles such as Baldur Gates or Pool of Radiance. The camera point of view used is an isometric perspective. However, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire has 3D graphics. Many fans of RPG games have passed this one game, maybe because Pillars of Eternity is not as popular as the Dragon Age series or games with the Dungeon and Dragons model, but that doesn’t mean this game is worth skipping. For those of you who haven’t tried it, Friendgame will discuss this one game, who knows your hearts will be moved to play this one game. Curious? Let’s follow this one buddy game article to the end.

Pillars of Eternity 2

Story Plot: It is recommended to play the prequel

Story-wise, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire is a direct sequel to the previous game which takes place in the world of Eora. Before playing this sequel, to find out the story, we suggest you to play the prequel. Just like the previous game, you will play as a Watcher who has the ability to see other people’s souls and read their memories. The story of this game begins 5 years after the events of the first game. Eothas, the god of light who is believed to be dead, wakes up under the fortress of Caed Nua. The awakening of the God of Light destroyed Caed Nua’s existence. Under these circumstances, they are contacted by the god of death named Berath who offers to return their souls if they agree to become Berath’s heralds and go after Eothas and find out what the god of light is up to. The hunt for Eothas leads the Watchjer to an island called Deadfire where they must search for answers that could lead them to their deaths.

On his journey, the main protagonist will meet four different factions, including the Royal Deadfire Company, Rauatai Empire, Valian Trading Company, Huana, and also Principi sen Patrena. In this hunt, you can ask for help from the four factions. That’s the outline of the story plot presented by the game Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire. How about the graphics and gameplay?

Full of New Things

In this second series, Obsidian tries to give a different approach. Now you will not only find medieval society equipped with various races and monsters. As we explained earlier that in this game there are four factions, so you will find people with different lifestyles. There are many terms, character names, and tribal names that you have to remember to make the game easier. Since the first series, Obsidian has not emphasized the graphic side. This game still continues the isometric camera style with 3D characters. However, that does not mean that with a classic style, Pillars of Eternity does not offer a novelty. This sequel to Pillars of Eternity carries an open-world concept that allows you to move more freely and explore more freely.

Another aspect offered by this sequel to the RPG game from Obsidian is ship battles. However, don’t expect to get battles between ships like the game Assassin’s Creed Black Flag. You will only see text and also paintings when faced with enemy ships. Junebe this is what we think is one of the shortcomings that makes this game less exciting.

Conclusion: Classic Style with Pretty Interesting Storyline

But what we think is the drawback of this game is that there are still bugs that are quite annoying. In addition, many characters and stories that should be interesting have no room to breathe. RPG games should have a long playtime, this is what we think is a bit disappointing from this game. The presentation of the main quest in Pillars of Eternity II goes very fast. Likewise, the ship’s battle features are so crisp. However, behind it all, the second Pillars of Eternity series has a storyline that is quite interesting and fun to follow. Therefore, buying this game is not a wrong decision.
