Divinity Original Sin was a welcome return to form for the CRPG genre and was so packed with content and intelligent design that it captured the minds of critics and fans alike. It was also nice to have a game as complex as this within an increasingly streamlined gaming landscape and it wasn’t afraid to do what it set out to do. With its subsequent console releases, Divinity Original Sin became one of the top games to own if you’re at all a fan of RPGs.
Its sequel, Divinity Original Sin 2, was also funded through Kickstarter and has actually been available for quite some time on Steam Early Access. Obviously, the game isn’t fully complete yet, but we now have a solid date for when they are planning to get out of Early Access. That date is September 14th, 2017. The game is only releasing for PC at this time, but console ports are probably a consideration for the future as well.
The sequel promises to be even bigger than the original with more quests, more ways to play and a more streamlined combat system. It looks and sounds like one of the most ambitious CRPGs yet and early impressions have been incredibly solid. If you’re a fan of the genre or are looking for something to really sink your teeth into that provides a ton of experimentation and replayability, this may be the game for you.
