According to the press release, players will witness the conclusion of The White March storyline, and be treated to tons of new content and questlines located in the snowy borderlands of the world's Eastern Reach. The White March-Part 2 will also feature a new companion, a barbarian named Meneha, as well as raising the level cap beyond 14, providing new abilities for characters to learn as well. Finally, Obsidian discusses the inclusion of a "story time" mode, which would allow players to, "experience the incredible narrative of Pillars of Eternity at a faster pace."

The press release also mentions that players will not only experience the ending to the The White March, but that the release of the DLC will bring "the first epic chapter of Pillars of Eternity to a close" implying that this will be the final piece of DLC for the game. This makes sense, as Obsidian is moving onto refining other projects, such as the free to play title Armored Warfare

Pillars of Eternity was Obsidian's kickstarter project, first announced back in late 2012. The project raised close to $4 million with 73,986 backers from the Kickstarter campaign. The team has been working on DLC to Pillars of Eternity since before the game was released. The first part of The White March was released in August of last year. 

Pillars of Eternity was well received when released in March of last year,  garnering great reviews for its return to the isometric style of infinity-engine era RPG’s. Our own review of the game can also be read.
