The Linux release?

Believe us, it’s not that we’re not interested in producing a version for Mac/Linux/Console. It’s just that we want to get the gameplay and world fleshed out in all the detail that it needs first. Once we have the game fully worked out, we’ll start looking at porting it to other platforms. That’s not something that’ll happen during the Kickstarter or indeed this year.

From Larian Studios:

“This FAQ from 2 years ago is stating that we would be “looking at porting at other platforms.” Which does not guarantee a Linux/Mac/Console version will ever happen. It will depend on the success of DOS2, and the resources available after the release.”

Since this update covers the launch date and voice acting. Any further news regarding Linux is somewhat limiting even via Kickstarter. However more content is coming. Since we have further feedback from Larian Studios. It looks like a Linux release will be a “wait and see.”

Divinity: Original Sin 2 includes veterans from the games industry:

  • Harry Hadden-Paton as the Red Prince, a haughty but heroic lizard noble exiled from his own empire.
  • Alix Wilton Regan as Sebille, an elven assassin seeking vengeance against the Master who once enslaved her.
  • Tamaryn Payne as Lohse, a star musician possessed by an unwelcome – and powerful – visitor.
  • Chris Finney as Ifan ben-Mezd, a mercenary ex-soldier on the run from a haunted past.
  • Alec Newman as Beast, a rebel-turned-pirate who must save his people from their reckless and tyrannical queen.
  • Christopher Bonwell as the undead whose origin story will soon have a reveal.

Not only do the game’s main origin characters have a full voice-over. Divinity: Original Sin 2 also features around 1200 different characters and creatures. All voicing has a completely full cast of around 80 actors. The full extent of the games voice content cannot possibly be available in one playthrough. So players who want to hear every NPC’s story. And every origin story interaction will require many playthroughs.
