Today is Divinity: Original Sin 2's big day. Earlier today, the embargo on Gamescom coverage of the game was lifted and numerous websites published their previews, including loads of gameplay footage. A couple of hours ago, Larian followed up on that with a new Kickstarter update, formally announcing that Divinity: Original Sin 2 will be released on Steam Early Access on September 15th, with a final release expected in 2017. The Early Access release will contain the game's first act and the arena mode along with multiplayer support, and all Kickstarter backers will receive a key. The game already has a Steam page, along with a shiny new official website. Here's the Kickstarter update video, which includes a copious amount of entertaining outtakes from Larian's visit to Gamescom. Watch for the erudite Bubbles cameo at around 5:12.
We are incredibly excited to announce that you’ll get your first taste of Divinity: Original Sin 2 on the 15th of September. We’re giving all Kickstarter backers access to the first act of the game: Fort Joy.
We’re going to level with you - it’s not a nice place. Think Alcatraz, but if Alcatraz was a leper colony. And the island was haunted. And the bay around it was full of sharks. With tentacles… It ain’t pretty, is what we’re saying. But we’re sure that a resourceful Sourcerer like you will be able to find some new friends. Or useful enemies…
We’ve been working on this for a very long time, and seeing it go out into the world is an amazing experience. We’ve already had some incredible feedback from the press but of course it’s your voices that we can’t wait to hear. You were all here with us when we started this journey, and we can’t wait to show you how far we’ve come. And we’re not done yet!
