Divinity: Original Sin 2 has entered Early Access today on PC. The sequel to Larian Studios’ Divinity: Original Sin can be accessed on Steam for 44.99 USD. Buying into early access gains you the full game when it officially releases sometime later this year.
Early Access includes two sections of the game, Act 1 of the campaign, and the PvP arena.
- Act 1 gives you the chance to explore (and escape) Fort Joy, a camp where the Magisters bring Sourcerers to make sure they are not a threat to society, and the surrounding swamps.
- The PvP arena is where you can battle your friends (or strangers) online or over LAN. There are a range of maps and two game types to get you going so you can enjoy combat with high-level characters and skills.
- Players can choose from 1 of 5 races, and 1 of 4 origin stories. Origin stories impact how characters in the game interact with the players, but have no effect on attributes.
Along the early access period, Larian will be collecting feedback on the game on their forums and other social channels. Development will be ongoing and players can expect frequent updates, changes and new content along the way.
We had a ton of fun with the original game, streaming it over the course of several days, and the sequel is making several improvements to the game’s graphics, stats and more, following a resoundingly successful Kickstarter. Check out one of our streams of the original below:
