In the final days of their crowdfunding campaign, Obsidian's Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire has hit the goal for the floating replacement for the strongholds in the original Pillars.
From the announcement post on their Fig.co campaign page, "Yes, we can finally confirm what we've been keeping secret this whole time: a new and exciting feature that takes the Pillars of Eternity experience to a completely new stage, which adds open-world exploration and discovery to the gameplay on both land and at sea! As many of you guessed correctly, in Deadfire you can be the captain of your own ship. With ships, you have the power to play the game differently; now, you can freely explore the islands of the Deadfire using the new world map."
Basically, I'm just gonna sit here and say "Called it," because that's how I like to live my life. The announcement video and first look into the Ships aspect of gameplay is below.
If you still want to get in on the action here, their crowdfunding campaign is up for another two days and 3 hours.
