Pillars of Eternity - The White March Part I:
Pillars of Eternity: The White March - Part I is a large sprawling expansion pack with hours of gameplay integrated into the main adventure. Along with the new quests and area content, the team at Obsidian continues to support and make improvements to the entire game, including the additions of Player Party AI and Enhanced Enemy AI. Even if you haven't played Pillars of Eternity, now is a great time to jump in and experience the hardcore classic RPG with The White March - Part I.
Raised level cap: Your party of six adventurers can now progress beyond level 12 to 14. The additional levels add powerful new spells, abilities and talents for all 11 classes.
New areas to explore: Largely focused on the snowy environments inspired by Icewind Dale, the expansion will feature a new quest hub, and many additional quests and dungeons.
Soulbound weapons: The expansion features mighty artifacts that grow stronger over time. These weapons gain different powers and attributes depending on the character class that binds to it.
New companions: Part 1 of the expansion introduces two new companions you will be able to use throughout all of your adventures. The Devil of Caroc, a rogue, and Zahua, a monk, will be available to join you on your quest in The White March and will travel back with you into the base game.
Multi-class talents: Classes will now have additional options to diversify and take on some of the abilities of other classes.
Party AI: Now you will have the option to set AI scripts for your party, allowing you to focus on controlling the characters you care about most.
Enhanced Enemy AI: Enemies and monsters are now smarter than ever. The new AI makes the entire game more of a challenge, and spell casters will use a wider variety of their spells in more devastating ways.
Respec: At any inn or tavern the player can re-level their party members. It gives flexibility for the player to experiment with the RPG systems and try out builds with the newly added multi-class talents. If you aren't completely satisfied with your character, you can now do a rebuild and start over fresh.

The White March adds a new sub section to the map with new locations and a new town to explore and a new area into the main map section. The White March will likely remind people of the Icewind Dale games, it is as now covered area with a town Stalwart, that looks right out of those games. The first part of the DLC will have you fighting off a war party of ogres and attempting to restart an ancient forge. The second part of the quest begins when you have a vision of an army attacking from the White March and you travel back to defend the area, you will see new areas added to old maps, new people, and some reactivity based on your actions during the first quest. The addition of four more levels adds some nice new abilities and two new levels of magic to the game. Soulbound equipment is added to the game which are items that can be bound to a character and leveled up when you complete certain set goals, giving you powerful equipment with some lore behind each one, and often custom abilities depending on the class of the character it was bound to. Three new companions are available to recruit, I didn't find them to be as well written as some of the previous characters but they are all entertaining and your old companions have some amusing interactions with people and places in the new areas. If you enjoyed the original game this is an expansion worth picking up.
This season pas only includes both episode for the new "White March" expansion, with the option to spare 6€ in case your intention was to buy each episode apart. The expansion has a great value, bringing into Pillars of Eternity new locations, characters, quests, including tons of fixing to AI and some tune in and there, including the option to respec your characters. A must if you loved vanilla Pillars.
