Obsidian announce via a post on their forums the release date for their upcoming DLC The Forgotten Sanctum for Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire which will launch on December 13th 2018.

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire Upcoming DLC The Forgotten Sanctum and Patch 4.0

The Forgotten Sanctum follows the vanishing of archmage Maura, after the earth shattering tremors take hold of the islands of the Deadfire. It is in the newly opened dungeon that adventurers must seek out Maura and the threat that has now awakened there. This quest to find the archmage will determine the outcome of the Deadfire Archipelego’s most hidden mysteries.

Features include:

  • Traverse an expansive dungeon built into the flesh of a sleeping god.
  • Encounter the highest-level challenges yet faced by the Watcher and their companions.
  • Scheme with or defy the wills of Eora’s most powerful wizards.
