Pillars of Eternity: Definitive Edition [Official Site] has been announced for release on November 15th, bringing all current content as well as a new DLC into one package.

It will contain the original game, The White March: Parts I & II DLC packs, all content originally in the Pillars of Eternity: Royal Edition plus a brand new Deadfire Pack DLC. The new DLC will have new in-game items to earn and discover, and new portraits from the forthcoming sequel, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire. Worth noting that the new Deadfire Pack DLC will be free for existing owners, as a thank you for supporting the game.

I know some of you wait for these types of editions to come out, so you get everything together. Hopefully this will be interesting for some of you.

The Definitive Edition will be priced around $39.99, which sounds like a damn good deal for the amount of content on offer here.

On top of that, Pillars of Eternity: Hero Edition will get a reduced price when the Definitive Edition is released. With more sales due before the year is up, it might still be worth waiting anyway.

I'd be happy if all games that plan to have a lot of expansions or DLCs would be released with a season pass as well. Let's say you pay 150 % of the base game, but you'll get all updates.

The picture triggers fond memories of the game. I really should get the expansion.

I want to support new games the moment they come out... but at the same time I want all the DLC for the game, without having to buy it later. Whereas people who don't buy early, wait for the Game Of The Year (GOTY) version and get everything in one go and a much better value deal as well.

In my case I bought Pillars, then White March I, then White March II, and NOW there is Deadfire DLC (and the 'GOTY' Definitive version which has it all.)

g000h, I get your point. Usually I'd love to do the same if I REALLY want to have a certain game. Maybe you should look at my former comment, for this reasons also smaller studios should sell a "Season Pass" in advance.

If I'd like to have some game but I'm not that much into it, I usually wait for a sale, maybe also for a sale of the GOTY Edition etc.

I guess they often don't know what (and even if) additional content there will be before seeing at least the first week's sales...

But will it have visible capes? :D

Will I get the new DLC for free if I bought Expansion Pass?

Probably not, publisher being Paradox...

I bought Pillars of Eternity some time after release but soon they announced the expansions, so I waited with playing it until I bought the expansions. And then waited some more, just in case. Actually I've just started it last week, and now this...

I really hate the dlc-pumping model, it's the reason I never played more than a few hours of CK2 and EU4 and stopped buying DLCs for them (well, another reason being dlcs not going below -50/-66% any more), as well as stopped buying any new games by Paradox. I didn't even buy Tyranny even though it seems like my type of game, because I don't know how many dlcs it will spawn. I know they probably don't plan everything upfront, so they can't just say "this game will have 3 dlc, here's a season pass for you", but still as a player I resent it and refuse to take part. Maybe some day, in a few years, I'll buy and play "Tyranny Complete" or some such.

QuoteThe new Deadfire Pack DLC will also be made available for free to all existing (and future) owners of Pillars of Eternity on Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs to thank them for their ongoing support of what has become one of the world’s most beloved RPGs.

Says the website.

So what :-)

I wonder if there will be a lower-priced upgrade for people who already own the original game?

Maybe time for me to finally have a second round at the game :D
