Announced earlier in the summer at E3, The White March – Part I, the first expansion pack for Obsidian Entertainment’s modern cRPG ode to genre classics like Baldur’s Gate and Icewind Dale, has received an official launch date of August 25th.

With snow themed environments inspired by Icewind Dale, The White March will feature a story written by Eric Fenstermaker, Pillars of Eternity‘s lead writer and a co-writer on South Park: The Stick of Truth, as well as Recoletta series author and original Pillars of Eternity writer, Carrie Patel.

In terms of extra content, the expansion will offer a higher level cap, a new party-based AI system, new rogue and monk companions, multi-class abilities, and more.

The White March will also fit smoothly within the existing campaign structure. Whether you have completed the main Pillars of Eternity story yet or not, the expansion will be playable right alongside the original game content. So I take it that means it’ll be integrated much like the Tales of the Sword Coast expansion to the original Baldur’s Gate.
