Larian Studios has sent out a word that its party RPG Divinity: Original Sin 2 will launch on September 14th, 2017. The sequel is much larger in size than its highly-awarded predecessor, Divinity: Original Sin, and will offer Game Master and PvP modes. Players will have tools at their disposal to create their own adventures as well as arenas to compete against each other.
What do we know about Divinity: Original Sin 2?
The events of the game take place thousands of years after the Original Sin. Players will take on a role of a renegade using forbidden magic. The players will decide who will be the next god of Rivellon and what they will do with their power.
Divinity: Original Sin 2 expands on the player freedom that made 2014’s Divinity: Original Sin so much fun. Divinity: Original Sin 2 features five playable races and a new tag system that lets players shape the background and motivations of their characters, from noble elven cannibals to swarthy dwarven outlaws. Each choice you make shapes the world, impacting how you complete quests, solve problems, and build relationships – go anywhere, take anything, and kill anyone, but be careful of the repercussions!
Players can expect to find up to 4-player co-op where it is possible to compete as well as to cooperate to reach the goals. The game also offers a new relationship system which will provide more nuance to character interactions as each individual will have their own objective and priority dictated by their race or background. The combat system will get even more interactions and powerful skills.
