Many fans have enjoyed the early access for Divinity: Original Sin 2 via Steam, where it consistently has received “Very Positive” reviews. The follow up to 2014’s Divinity: Original Sin, this sequel takes players once more to a world where the gods are dead, and anyone who holds mysterious, magical abilities are ruthlessly persecuted. The sequel features a much larger world than ever before, as well as the ability to choose your character’s race, and pick a unique back story that influences the story.
Divinity: Original Sin 2 will also include a Game Master mode upon release, allowing players to craft their own stories and scenarios. PvP will also be fully functional, pitting players in strategic combat against one another.
Larian has released an update to the early access version of the game to celebrate the official release announcement. A video with information on that update can be seen on their official YouTube channel.
