Axe of the Blood God: Obsidian's Josh Sawyer Joins Us to Dive Deep Into Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire

PODCAST | More perfect RPG teams, news, and more in the latest episode of our RPG podcast!

Axe of the Blood God is our weekly RPG podcast hosted by Kat Bailey and Nadia Oxford. You can find the previous episodes here.

In this week's episode of Axe of the Blood God (download link here), we welcome back Obsidian's Josh Sawyer to talk Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire!

Our interview with Josh is the latest bit in a series of coverage that we have planned over the next couple weeks. This is part of a greater initiative with the Gamer Network, and there is a ton of great stuff over on Eurogamer as well (as always). If you haven't read it already, check out my look back on the Last Days of Black Isle Studios, which I also discuss in this episode.
