Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire Raises 400% of Original Crowdfunding Goal

Obsidian Entertainment’s crowdfunding campaign for Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire has ended with the developer reaching over 400% of their original goal. Over 33,000 backers pledged $4,407,598 towards the development of the RPG sequel.
