One of my favorite recent games is Divinity: Original Sin from Larian Studios, who developed my ‘Top 5 all-time’ RPG Divine Divinity. The game released on Mac & PC about a year ago to much acclaim, and is getting an enhanced edition and console release this fall. Now Larian has announced that they are working on Divinity: Original Sin 2!
Here is the announcement from their Kickstarter page:
“It is with great excitement that we can announce our most ambitious project ever – Divinity: Original Sin 2!
For a long time, we’ve dreamed of making something even bigger, better, and more engaging than Divinity: Original Sin, and now it might finally be within our reach. However, we can’t reach that dream without your help. As Swen says in his latest blog post, “Divinity: Original Sin wouldn’t be the game it was without the input from our Kickstarter backers … without having that same community on board, it’s going to be very hard for us to achieve the goals we have for Divinity: Original Sin 2″.”
“On August 26th we’ll be returning to Kickstarter with Divinity: Original Sin 2, but you don’t have to wait to have your say. We’ll want a lot of feedback as we progress, and right now we want to know what YOU want from the Kickstarter campaign. Head over to our Divinity: Original Sin 2 page to suggest what rewards you’d like to see, and vote on the rewards that others have suggested!”
The Divinity: Original Sin 2 Kickstarter campaign will kick off on August 26. Larian is allowing fans to suggest which rewards they would like to see offered by voting and offering feedback on the game’s official website.
Larian also announced that they will be at PAX Prime in late August to show off a playable prototype of Divinity: Original Sin 2 for those in attendance, where they’ll highlight some of the game’s unique features. Attendees will also have a chance to meet the developers and win prizes by visiting Booth #6011.
More information will be unveiled when the Kickstarter campaign for Divinity: Original Sin 2 launches on August 26.
Larian Studios announced Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition would be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, although no release date was revealed at the time. Hopefully it’ll be available in time for newcomers to the series to complete the game prior to the launch of Original Sin 2.
