Pillars of Eternity Patch v3.02 Beta Version Live, Changelog

A new beta patch has been released on Steam for Pillars of Eternity, and it seemingly fixes a large number of issues with the game and its two-part expansion, The White March. Of particular note are a few fixes that should resolve problems with black screens during loading transitions, incorrect ending slides, and combat mode starting or ending at incorrect times. A new yellow selection circle was also added for dominated friendlies, to help distinguish them from enemies.

The full changelog can be found at this link and includes a whole host of balance changes and fixes that we didn't cite here. I'm going to quote the highlights and the fixes specific to The White March content:
