Divinity Original Sin 2 release date revealed

Divinity: Original Sin was praised for its deep roots in pen and paper RPG lore, and even more so for its highly tactical combat and engrossing story. So it’s no surprise then that the sequel, which has been in early access for a while now, is easily one of the most anticipated releases for the year. And yes, it’s still going to launch this year too. Original Sin 2 finally has a release date, and you can continue your tale in its massive world come September 14th.

Developers Larian Studios announced the news yesterday with an update to the existing early access content. previously players could jump in early for $45 via Steam and get access to the game’s opening area and character creation. Some new areas were added to that following the release date announcement, and a few upgrades to character creation that will let you experiment further before release.

This sequel takes place thousands of years after the events of the first game, but mostly keeps its system intact. The game will launch with the same lengthy single-player campaign, as well as a host of options for PvP play. Players will be able to craft their own arenas for battle, which will let you go toe-to-toe with foes online. There’s also four-player co-op, in case you’re more interested in working together rather than against each other.

There’s also a “Game Master” mode, which burrows even further into paper and pen role-playing. In this mode, one player continually crafts the experience for other players, acting as a literal GM over the events of the story. It seems pretty neat.

You can all call me Sandy until I figure out how to edit this thing, which is probably never. Sandy not good enough? Call me xXx_J0k3R_360degreeN0Sc0pe_xXx. Also, Geoff’s a bastard.

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    I loved the combat in the first one so much. Looking forward to this.

    • Original Heretic

      Superb game. I loved every aspect of it.
      Hope this one comes to console as well at some point.

    • Hammersteyn

      Sad that I haven’t gotten to it yet

      • Original Heretic

        *insert inarticulate noises conveying incredulity*

        • Hammersteyn

          something like blaaarrggagagagag?

          • schitsophrenic-toothbrush

            Yeah dude, got it on console and loved it, cant even remember how many hours I burned in that game. Hoping they let us know soon about the console release.

    • miaau

      Yes, me too. The control system and story did get to me after a while, the trouble I had following the story. I had to think and re-read stuff, which my tired brain rebelled at at night, after a days thinking work.

      • Original Heretic

        It’s the kind of game where you have remember what you’ve done to really know what’s potting later in the game.
        I took a break of 3 months from it, when I went back, I was lost.

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          I did the same. And in the interim they released the enhanced edition, so I restarted from scratch with that.

          • Original Heretic

            Last time I played was about two months ago. My characters were all at about level 17 or 18, so I was pretty damn far into the game.
            My save game was on my stolen PS. I doubt I’m going back to it any time soon….
