Brief BeyDiv preview at GameSpot
Preview - posted by Spazmo on Wed 14 April 2004, 02:27:28Tags: Beyond Divinity; Larian Studios
Gamespot PC have a quick preview of the upcoming action RPG thing, Beyond Divinity.
Classic role-playing games traditionally put you in the role of a hero destined to save a fantasy kingdom by slaying monsters, acquiring treasures and powerful weapons, and improving your strength by gaining experience levels. 2002's Divine Divinity was very much a traditional role-playing game in this sense, since the isometric action role-playing game presented an epic quest with a suitably epic story and even a correspondingly epic zombie named Jake. Developer Larian Studios is now putting the finishing touches on the sequel, Beyond Divinity, which promises even more epic role-playing in a strange new world. Unfortunately, the game was recently delayed slightly; fortunately, this was to include all-new English voice-over. We recently had a chance to see an updated version of the game in action.
I really hope they mustered some decent voice acting this time because the spoken dialogue in DivDiv was godawful.
