Ahoy, gaming crew! If you’ve been cruising the waves of PlayStation Plus, you might have crossed paths with the thrilling RPG adventure, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire. But brace yourselves, because this awesome pirate story is saying goodbye to the PlayStation Plus crew on January 16. Let’s dive into the world of Pillars of Eternity II and give it a hearty farewell.
The Twist in Baldur’s Gate 3
Okay, picture this: Baldur’s Gate 3, a game we usually connect with turn-based action. But surprise, surprise! When it was announced, the turn-based twist caught us off guard. The older games in the series had a different combat system, a mix of real-time and pause, a classic from the ’90s. While it might not be the hottest trend now, some games are keeping that legacy alive. And guess what? You’ve got until January 16 to enjoy one of these gems on PlayStation Plus.
Pillars of Eternity II, Pirate’s Adventure in a Fantasy World
Now, let’s set sail into Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, a creation of Obsidian Entertainment. This RPG takes you on a wild pirate adventure in a fantasy world. Yeah, it’s got a sprinkle of Dungeons & Dragons vibes, but it’s not your everyday tale. Imagine magic powered by souls, a giant walking statue possessed by a grumpy god, and a whole bunch of islands with their own unique cultures.
Sequel on the High Seas
Ideally, you’d start with the first Pillars of Eternity to know the whole story, but jumping into the sequel is cool too. Here’s the scoop – a statue with god powers wrecks your home, and you decide to stop it from wrecking the entire world. Simple, right? Well, not exactly. The game’s unique world comes with a ton of lore, but don’t worry; there’s an in-game encyclopedia to explain everything from factions to metaphysics.
Sailing into Pillars of Eternity II Adventure
But hang on to your pirate hats because Pillars of Eternity II spices things up with sailing. Now, you’re not just stomping around on land; you’re a daring sailor chasing after a colossal sea monster. Your ship, with your trusty crew, becomes your floating home. And here’s where the strategy kicks in COIN33 – manage your crew, gather supplies, and keep that ship afloat between your daring quests.
Naval Combat: A Pirate’s Dance
While you hop from one island to the next, danger lurks on the horizon. Naval combat adds a new beat to the game – it’s turn-based, unlike the rest of your adventure. Maneuvering your ship to dish out damage while dodging the enemy’s attacks turns into a strategic dance. If that’s not your jam, no worries! Channel your inner pirate and hop onto the enemy ship for some classic face-to-face combat.
Farewell to an Epic Tale
As we wave goodbye to Pillars of Eternity II on PlayStation Plus, we raise our virtual glasses to the thrilling adventures, political twists, and the pure joy of living the pirate’s life. Sure, the lore might take a bit to sink in, but the captivating story and high-seas escapades are worth every moment.
So, if you haven’t sailed with Pillars of Eternity II yet, now’s your chance before it sets anchor away from PlayStation Plus. An epic pirate’s life awaits, and this game is the perfect ship for your RPG adventures. Until we meet again, Pillars of Eternity II, may your seas be calm, and your tales legendary!
