Swen Vincke may be in Croatia, but that hasn't stopped Larian from delivering the Divinity: Original Sin 2 Kickstarter update they promised, summarizing their visit to PAX East last week. The accompanying video demonstrates the game's new combat features in a PvP match between Swen Vincke and a diminutive underling, followed by a look at the impressions of PAX East's visitors. It's nothing we don't know about already at this point, but it's nice to get a detailed visual look at it. Here's the video and text:
- New combat mechanics, including ultra-powerful Source skills powered by Source Points-- which you can obtain through fair or truly foul means.
- Height gameplay, including added damage and range bonuses when attacking from on high (flying Margaret, anyone?).
- New surface interactions in which you can Bless and Curse existing surfaces in order to help or hurt your fellow combatants.
- A brand new armor system featuring Magical and Physical armor.
