Divinity Original Sin 2, the sequel to Larian Studios' role-playing game released in 2014, will be releasing from Steam Early Access on September 14, 2017, has been announced.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a brand-new experience compared to its predecessor title. Players will be experiencing a story that's much darker in tone this time around. The game is being built in the Divinity 3.0 engine, and with this new engine version comes a wealth of improvements. The UI has been completely overhauled, and the atmosphere of the game will be accentuated by physics-based rendering, a cloth physics system, and dynamic music. The most recent Kickstarter update video showcases some of the new things that are on their way:


In addition, four-player co-op play is available if you'd like to jump into a game with friends. You'll be able to pick from multiple different races including Human, Lizard, Elf, and even Undead. Players will be afforded a degree of freedom in their choices, beginning with the Origin System that lets them choose how their character will begin their journey. Multiplayer excursions may result in conflicting goals throughout the course of the game depending on the choices that you and your fellow players made via the Origin System. Tactical combat will be present as ever, and the elements system will remain with the addition of the ability to combine them in different ways.

If you don't feel like waiting to get your hands on Divinity: Original Sin 2 you can pick it up on Steam Early Access right now for $44.99 or your regional equivalent. Divinity: Original Sin 2 exits Steam Early Access on September 14, 2017.
