During our recent interview with Obsidian's Adam Brennecke we were told all about the incoming expansion for Pillars of Eternity, The White March.
One of the first things we discussed was how and when players will be able to enjoy the new content. Obsidian are recommending level 7, although the area will be available when players are around level 5.
It was also confirmed during the interview that high level players will be able to opt for scaling difficulty if they want, although that's completely optional.
"After you get your stronghold in the main game, you can venture into the White March area, and it's completely side content, all optional, and it fits in with the rest of the game," the lead programmer and executive producer told us.
"It's another area that unlocks on the world map, and you can freely go back and forth between the White March areas and the base game areas at any time. You can bring all the good loot that you found from the White March areas, back into the base game. You can bring the companions back, back and forth. So yeah, it's very open-ended."
With regards to the first instalment of the expansion, the cunningly titled Part 1, Brennecke confirmed that it's coming "soon", but what about Part 2? It's "also soon, but we're not announcing that right now," the man from Obsidian teased. Let's hope they aren't too far apart.
