Since kicking immense derriere with its Kickstarter campaign, Divinity: Original Sin 2 from Larian Studios has consistently looked the goods. Now it is the goods, hitting Steam as an Early Access title this week.
Unless you were involved in the Kickstarter, you'll need to pay $US44.99 to get on board. If you do spend the cash, what can you look forward to?
- Act 1 of the campaign, with approximately 8-12 hours of gameplay.
- Online co-op for up to four players.
- Four playable races: Human, Elf, Dwarf, and Lizard.
- Four optional Origin Stories with unique quests and interactions.
- Eight schools of skills and spells.
- PvP Arena mode with select maps.
You also don't have to go with Steam, though you'll need to exercise patience. Larian says Original Sin 2 is "coming soon" to GOG's "Games in Development" program, the distributor's Early Access equivalent.
As much as I loved the first game, I'm going to take the same strategy I did with Original Sin — wait for its full release so I can enjoy the finished, polished experience. Not a fan of going at it in piecemeal (and buggy) form. Huge kudos to everyone that does dive in now, you're making it a better game for the rest of us.
