Obsidian Entertainment and Versus Evil have announced that the first major DLC for Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire has been released. Called "Beast of Winter", the DLC is part of the Season Pass or for $9.99 for those who do not own the Season Pass. In addition, Obsidian announced that three more DLC will be coming before the end of 2018. Those who opt out of the DLC will still receive the beefy 2.0 update with bug fixes and balance improvements as well as the Deck of Many Things".
Upon receiving a missive from an isle of worshipers to the god of entropy and disaster, Beast of Winter takes the Watcher and his crew to the southernmost reaches of the Deadfire Archipelago. The Watcher is thought to be the harbinger of the end of all things and worshipers of the god of cold and decay, Rymrgand, have called upon the Watcher to fulfill their destiny. All players will receive the 2.0 update that is packed with a host of bug fixes and balance improvements, and brings new challenge modes to Deadfire. These challenges will test player’s mettle in unique and interesting ways to play through the game. The “Deck of Many Things” pack is the largest free DLC to be released yet and has the mysterious merchant ship, The Deck of Many Things, arriving in the Deadfire looking to sell magical items its crew found on its journeys to the East.
