Pillars of Eternity 2 interview talks creatures and characters of Seeker, Slayer, Survivor DLC

Pillars of Eternity's latest DLC is out today and Shacknews recently spoke to lead narrative designer Alex Scokel about what to expect.


Pillars of Eternity 2 is preparing to ride off into its first batch of DLC. Obsidian is still riding high off of the game's positive buzz (which includes a sterling review from Shacknews), but took some time to talk to Shacknews about what players can expect next.

In the Seeker, Slayer, Survivor DLC, players venture to a mysterious island, where strange happenings are occuring. Their journey eventually takes them to the island's arena, where they encounter waves of enemies and challenges from some monstrous creatures.

"We're gonna see a really cool Fire Titan, which is like an Engwithan Titan, but with fire!" lead narrative designer Alex Scokel tells Shacknews. "We're bringing back some old favorites from Pillars of Eternity, with big pointy teeth, which I won't spoil the name of yet, but my guess is those of you who play the game know what I'm talking about."

Scokel further teases things with glowing eyes, from fish men to ogres, as well as shady characters. To learn more about what's coming in the Seeker, Slayer, Survivor DLC, check out the full interview. For more content like this, be sure to subscribe to Shacknews and GamerHub.TV on YouTube.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
