Divinity: Original Sin 2 Is Headed To Steam Early Access On September 15th


Divinity: Original Sin 2 isn't really an MMO, but it has online elements, it's an RPG, and a few of us on the team rather liked the first game, so we're making a tiny exception for today's news. The game is headed to Steam Early Access on September 15th, just under a year after its Kickstarter campaign.

For those of you who haven't been following the follow-up to 2014's critically acclaimed cRPG, Divinity: Original Sin 2 will offer a new story, impressive graphics, multiple races to choose from, four-player co-op, and a PvP arena filled with traps and treasures, among other features. Additionally, the game runs on Divinity Engine 3.0, which allows it to support "physics-based rendering, cloth physics, and a new dynamic music system."

Divinity: Original Sin 2 will cost $44.99 when it launches as an Early Access title on September 15th.

Matt's Take:

Divinity: Original Sin was a great game and, while I've yet to play through the Enhanced Edition, I have high hopes for Original Sin 2. The aesthetic is quite impressive and allowing more players to take part in co-op never hurts. I'm also looking forward to playing as a lizardman, as I am a huge proponent of the inclusion of non-human races. As of right now, I am a little bit unsure about the price, but, if it improves on the first game the way it seems that it will, it may very well be worth it.
