Obsidian Entertainment announced the first of the three major expansion packs  which they announced earlier this year for Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.

The DLC is the first of the three expansions, the next one being Seeker, Slayer, Survivor which is set to release this September 2018 and The Forgotten Sanctum for November 2018. Check out the teaser trailer for Beast of Winter DLC below:
