As promised in last week's Kickstarter update, Larian broadcasted a three hour Divinity: Original Sin 2 gameplay/Q&A stream on their Twitch channel today, a day ahead of the game's Early Access release. At the very end of the stream, Swen had a very nice surprise: the Early Access release is available to Kickstarter backers, right now. The new Kickstarter update has the details:
Just to remind you all - this is an early access version of the game. It’s to make sure we’re going down the right path, to let you test a lot of the dialogs and systems that we’re working on.
Early Access includes two sections of the game: Act 1 of the campaign, and the PvP arena.
Act 1 gives you the chance to explore (and escape) Fort Joy, a camp where the Magisters bring Sourcerers to make sure they are not a threat to society, and the surrounding swamps.
The PvP arena is where you can battle your friends (or strangers) online or over LAN. There are a range of maps and two game types to get you going so you can enjoy combat with high-level characters and skills.
We’ll have our notebooks ready, so please let us know what you think on our forums!
Of course, not everyone will be able to claim their Steam key right now. If you’re not able to get the game just yet, but want to keep the hype as high as possible, then we’ve got you covered.
Over the next three days we’ll be showing off the game with some of our favourite youtubers - kicking off with Angry Joe at 2pm PT (22:00 Berlin / 9pm London). Keep an eye on Twitter and Facebook for more information!
