Divinity: Original Sin 2 is Now Available in Early Access

Hello!

We thought we'd let you know that, as a fan of Divinity: Original Sin 1, you would be interested to know that we have just released Divinity: Original Sin 2 in Early Access, right here on Steam.

It's an entirely new adventure, with lots of new features, improvements and a vastly upgraded RPG engine. You can now choose your race and origin story, and a tag system allows us to make the world react differently to your choices in character creation and in the game.

You can still blast your opponents with different elements, but we've added height gameplay, more surfaces, more surface interactions and magic armour and physical armour. The RPG system and balancing got a complete overhaul. The treasure generation was reimagined. You name it, we changed it because D:OS2 is a new game!

Explore the vast and layered world of Rivellon alone or do it now in an up to 4 player multiplayer campaign, with our drop-in/drop-out cooperative play.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 is an entirely new experience built on the next-gen Divinity Engine, with a new UI, an all-new art-style, and more advanced roleplay systems. Of course, everything that made the original game great is still there: go anywhere you want, kill anyone, interact with everything, find endless ways to solve problems and gather your ultimate RPG party.

If this has piqued your interest, have a look:

About This Game



Gather your party and get back to the roots of great RPG gameplay. Discuss your decisions with companions; fight foes in turn-based combat; explore an open world and interact with everything and everyone you see.

You take on the role of a young Source Hunter: your job is to rid the world of those who use the foulest of magics. Embarking on what should have been a routine murder investigation, you find yourself in the middle of a plot that threatens to destroy the very fabric of time.

  • A complete revamp: Thousands of enhancements, full voiceovers, new game modes, full controller support, split-screen co-op, hours of new and revised story content, a brand-new ending, new weapon styles, new skills, new puzzles, new enemies, better loot, better balancing and much, much more!
  • New game modes for extra replay. Explorer Mode for story-focused RPG fans. Classic Mode for those who want it just right. Tactician Mode for hardcore players, featuring fully reworked encounters, different traps and new and smarter enemy types. And Honour Mode, for the tactical geniuses among you!
  • Pen-and-paper-like freedom. Explore many different environments, fight all kinds of fantastical creatures, and discover tons of desirable items. You will be amazed at how much freedom the games gives you.
  • Manipulate the environment and use skill & spell combos to overcome your many foes. Warm up ice to create water. Boil the water to create a steam cloud. Electrify the steam cloud to create a static cloud and stun your enemies!
  • Play with a friend in co-op multiplayer, either online or with dynamic split-screen.
  • Unravel a deep and epic story, set in the early days of the Divinity universe. Discuss with your party members how to handle the many decisions you'll need to make.

It is very hard for me to express myself in a manner most fitting on how much I love this game.

I love it, I love the turnbase combat, I love the enviromental effects my spells does. I love the fact that I can combo it with my partner: I can throw out a rain spell, and he can turn everything into stun. I can teleport an oil barrel ontop of a boss and make it go BOOM with my fire magic.

I love the RP elements, and I generally don't. But D:OS made me care, my choices matters, my interaction with NPCs mattered and changed. I got to kill people, or put them under my wing. I could infiltrate a town, and turn the different factions against eachother, or I could come in with my guns blazing and burn it all down.

The 2nd game is getting early access the 15th this month: playing this game first is definitly worth it!

This is an excellent RPG in the vein of classic PC RPGs of the late 1990s, such as Baldur's Gate, Planescape: Torment, and Fallout.

It earns this classification due to its focus on plot, dialogue, interesting characters and settings, and deeply impactful player choices. It executes these core aspects very well. The plot is fascinating and at times unpredictable. The dialogue is not only dynamic and consequential but also unrelentingly cheeky (and fully voiced in the Enhanced Edition!). The characters are many and varied, with distinct personalities and motives that bring the game to life. The settings exhibit a remarkable attention to detail, with good design for their main purposes and numerous hidden curiosities and treasures. All of this is tied together by a game engine that enables and encourages you to play it your way, exploiting every available path and tool to achieve your objectives. This last point is taken to a greater extent than in most games in this subgenre: there are very few restrictions on where you can go; enemies are not leveled to your character or party; (nearly?) all NPCs can be killed; and most combat encounters are challenging enough to require some trickery to win.

On top of these familiar traits, this game adds a remarkably well executed combat/puzzle system based on interacting with the environment: moving objects around, creating surfaces and clouds of various elements, and exploiting the effects of numerous statuses that can affect combatants. The number of elements and statuses is vast, and all of them have meaningful interactions with each other that can be exploited to turn the tide of a battle—or used by the game against you.

In a nutshell, this game encourages the player to explore, to tinker, and to choose his or her own adventure. Somehow, despite the complexity inherent in that goal and in the game's execution of it, it doesn't feel engineered. For an RPG, it's easy to just pick up and play, and it's a pleasure every time.

The Enhanced Edition added—for free—numerous enhancements that truly improve the game. Fully voiced dialogue, reworked and expanded areas, improved and rebalanced skills, new equipment options, a completely overhauled crafting system, controller support… None of these changes were strictly necessary, but all of them are extremely welcome. Actions speak louder than words, and this upgrade truly demonstrates how deeply committed Larian Studios is to this game and to its fans.

My only major point of criticism is that it's sometimes unclear how to answer the question, "What do I do next?" This game is very much not on rails, and it makes little or no effort to hold your hand or tell you where to go, even if you know which quest(s) you would like to pursue. To a large extent, this is clearly intentional, as the game's plot- and subplot-driving sequences are meant to be discovered and progressed on the player's own terms and with the player's own comprehension. However, I believe it would be possible to retain loyalty to this spirit while providing a little more guidance: better map indicators, or more detailed log entries, or more pertinent dialogue sequences. On occasion, I find myself choosing my next destination solely based on the levels of the enemies that are there, which somewhat breaks my immersion. I'm curious to see how Larian responds to this common criticism in the upcoming sequel.

Bottom line: if you want to play an excellent RPG that has offers heaps of discovery, challenge, and free-form play, do not pass up Divinity: Original Sin.

Just finished this game. I played through this with a buddy on normal, took us about 90 hours. 90 fun rewarding hours. Honestly theres VERY little we didnt like about the game (having to log in over and over sometimes because on his screen the stats wouldnt load properly was crazy annoying). Honestly the slower more old school pace was perfect, even down to the turn based combat so either of us could take a break to do something. We never felt like we were forced to go anywhere or do anything or change our characters to fit the game. Lots of customization and freedom. I cant wait for the next one!

It's a really good co-op RPG, that has a combat system that I've never seen before. Their Co-op is also unique compared to many other games. Basically everything here is just overall unique really. The only problem is that there isn't much information around once you get stuck, which isn't the game's fault. Anyways, it's a pretty great game and I'm buying the next for sure.

Divinity: Original Sin may be the most fun I've had with a video game in the last half a decade. Sharing this game with my sister has given me no end of delight, and I cannot wait for the sequel. Some games have width, some have depth, and Divinity has both and something more important: the ability to share it with someone you enjoy spending time with.

Well, what else is there to say that hasn't already been said about this amazing game. I have put nearly 100hrs into the enhanced version, and about 60 into the original, all of which has been during co-op, and I can still jump back in and play. I will say this, anyone with a spouse that likes being able to play games with you, GET THIS GAME, end of story. The combat, exploration, out of the box puzzle solving and quest lines. It's just pure joy, pure pure joy. I cannot wait till Divinity Original Sin 2.

Taking the best element from Baulder's Gate, Diablo II, Dungeon Siege II, and D&D. There are numerous games that stress dexterity, and real-time combat systems and very few of these treasures that stress strategy and cunning (Final Fantasy Tactics anyone?).
Taking your time to enjoy every corner of a game is what the adventurers of our time dream of. Cast aside your speed-runs, your competative natures, and your rush to get to max level. ENJOY your stroll through this game and truely become attached to your characters.

The only Cons for this game are really the learning curves (if you've never played any of the games mentioned above, you will die early on and frequently). They start you with 1 resurrection scroll each and the tutorials will come up AS they are happening. In a nutshell, that means you won't learn that standing in oil and lighting it on fire is a bad idea until someone is burning.
Another Con would be that despite being beautifully programmed and coded, the optimization has limits and playing the game for anything longer than an hour risks memory leaks and crashes. Save frequently and restarting the app alleviates this.

Ultimately an incredible purchase and the Enhanced Edition adds all the bug fixes and perks that the consoles received (included in the price). Grab it when it's on sale ($20 I've seen it at times) and you'll kick away weeks of your life... well spent and enjoyed.

Excellent turn based combat RPG, the enhanced ed. makes it even better. Its hard to say anything negative about the game. One minor thing is for some that like me gets inpatient fast, it would be nice with some way of getting a hint on how to advance in a quest. It's not like in many other rpg's where you always have an active pointer to your next objective in a quest. The quest mechanic reminds me alot of adventure games of the old days (indy, monkey island, loom) where you have to solve puzzles completely on your own to advance in the game. I get that some like the challenge, but it would be nice to have the option to get a hint without having to resort to googling. But all in all this game is awesome!

I know a lot of reviews say this game has no "handholding" and is not for casual players, but don't let that neccessarily turn you away. I've never played one of those old-school CRPGs this game hearkens back to, so I entered the game pretty blind. It was very challenging at first, but once you get the hang of things and your characters have access to more tools and lower cooldowns, the combat aspect at least becomes much, much easier. And more fun. Every turn is like a puzzle. You don't just spam attacks (although I have two pure fighters who largely do... my two control mages support that.)

If you enjoy exploring every nook and cranny of a mysterious world, leaving no stone unturned, you will adore this game. While there is no quest tracker or markers or such modern amentities, the game actually does a good job of planting hints in the world (as well as updating your journal) so you're never left completely lost and confused. You get a great sense of satisfaction from figuring something out, putting the pieces together, following hints and clues, but nothing is completely obtuse. I've had to Google a couple times, but it's always been a "DUH" moment. Never a "how the hell would anyone ever figure that out" moment. Google isn't neccessary though... the answer is always in your inventory, in an NPC's dialogue, or hidden somewhere nearby!

I also like how I don't feel punished on normal difficulty for not building characters optimally. You have total freedom to build your characters as you choose, and it seems as long as you have a basic idea of what you want that character to do, you'll be fine. It seems like all the skill schools are pretty OP in their own ways. And you have a lot to play with when it comes to environmental effects, scrolls, grenades, etc. There's no battle you can't win, you just may have to try different approaches. There's a respec option available eventually, but I never thought, "oh, I really ♥♥♥♥ed up and I NEED to respec." I've been tempted to do it just because there are so many possibilities and things I want to try...

It's really difficult for me to feel compelled to finish a game these days, and I just can't get enough of this one. If you're a fan of RPGs of any sort and familiar with the basics, don't pass on this game. It's immersive, fun, rewarding, and best of all, you can play it with one hand. ;)

What do I have to say about this game....it is very nicely made for sure. Has some of the old school basics blended in with the new tech creating an original masterpiece. Got this as a gift from a good friend and have played through twice so far, getting ready to try on #3 shortly when I got the 2nd Divinity (was going to play that, but decided to write this first). If you like RPG's this game is certainly for you. The team did very well on seeing to detains. Graphics and gameplay are great. This this to be one of my favorites.
