In a final Backer Update before Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire’s launch next week on May 8, developer Obsidian Entertainment revealed it will have fully voiced dialogue for every conversation in the game.

The update video also showed off the ability to rename your boats, and even whole islands you’ve conquered. It also gave a glimpse at some interesting new abilities, including a firecracker explosive you can use to distract NPCs and the Fallout-inspired ability to ‘reverse pickpocket’ live bombs into enemy inventories.
