Larian Studios has announced that Divinity: Original Sin 2 will finally leave Early Access in September this year. That’s enough time to make 3 friends.
Divinity: Original Sin 2 was announced back in 2015, but Larian Studios is finally nearly done with the game. The Belgian studio has announced that Divinity: Original Sin 2 will release on September 14th, later this year. The game has already been available in Early Access form since September 2016, so the game’s release date will mark almost exactly a full year of Early Access development.
The news was announced alongside a new patch for the game’s Early Access version. This new patch brings along two new areas, relationship dialogues, a fifth origin story, and major changes to crafting and character creation. Find out more about the patch’s changes here. Larian Studios has also posted a video explaining what’s going on with the patch. Have a look below:
Divinity: Original Sin 2 builds on its predecessor in many ways, adding a considerable amount of freedom in how to approach role-playing, as well as adding greater complexity to the turn-based combat system. While one of the major selling points of the previous game was its two-player co-op, Original Sin 2 features 4-player co-op.
Here’s what’s happening in the game’s story:
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.
