Larian Studios, an award winning Belgian studio known for their highly acclaimed Divinity franchise, has just announced that Divinity: Original Sin 2 will get a Steam Early Access release in September 15, 2016.
Fans of the franchise may remember that the first Divinity: Original Sin also had an Early Access period, which was used to gather feedback and make meaningful changes to the game.
The sequel to Larian Studios’ award-winning RPG, Divinity: Original Sin 2 is an entirely new experience built upon the next-gen Divinity Engine with up to four-person multiplayer, cooperative and competitive questing, and new combat mechanics including advanced elemental interactions.
In a world where the Gods are dead, you play a wielder of forbidden magic, quarantined in the prison colony of Fort Joy. The Magisters of the Divine Order want to “cure” you of your powers. But, the Order has secrets of its own. Secrets that threaten everyone. If the world remains godless, chaos will rule. It’s time for a new Divinity.
Define your own path with an extensive roleplaying system inspired by tabletop gaming. Create a custom Origin Story for your character, or choose one of the specially-crafted Origins with unique quest-lines penned collaboratively by Larian Studios’ writers and Chris Avellone.
The world and its inhabitants react and adapt to each player’s combination of Origin Story, traits, and deeds, creating an individualized adventure with distinctive interactions and quests, sometimes even forcing players to choose between pursuing their own goals and those of the party.
Divinity: Original Sin 2 will be available on Steam Early Access (Windows) for $44.99 (USD) beginning September 15th.
