An epic RPG with turn-based combat, Divinity: Original Sin 2 can be played as both a singleplayer and multiplayer game for up to four players with both cooperative and competitive questing. In multiplayer, up to 4 players can play together, either cooperatively or competitively.
Switch seamlessly between cooperative and competitive play throughout the entire story. Work together with your companions as one, persuade NPCs to thwart your opponents, and beware of backstabbing allies. Or, put your own goals above that of the party, and plan the moment you will betray them all. It is up to you. In Divinity: Original Sin 2 it is all about how your origins affect who you are and what chances you get in life.

With Divinity: Original Sin 2, Larian Studios aims to change the way we think about narrative in RPG‘s, creating a world in which your history and actions shape the story, and NPCs react differently to each character.
In addition to a powerful system of classless character development, your origins and deeds will shape NPCs’ behaviors and attitudes. Your race, birthplace, and greatest feats all play a role in your journey, but watch out, as a reputation as a Traitor or Swindler can be hard to shake.
“Our aim is to create a world that reacts naturally to your character, and we want your characters to be unique, alive, and important to you. Most importantly, we want you to feel the consequences of your choices.”
Backers will have the opportunity claim Kickstarter-only rewards including multiplayer packs, a unique Kickstarter Collector’s Edition, custom artwork, and even a surprise pack that includes handpicked trinkets, mementos and other little things that inspired the team as they were developing the game. To ensure all backers can give feedback to the team, every backer at the $25 tier and higher will receive Alpha and Beta access!
Divinity: Original Sin 2 is currently in development for PC in English. Subtitles will be available in German, French, and Russian. Other platforms and languages may be announced at a later stage, once development is more advanced.
These are just a few of the features announced for Divinity: Original Sin 2. You can learn about the story, the new crafting system, the enhanced combat and more on Kickstarter. And yes, Linux Game News has also reached out to Larian Studios to confirm Linux and SteamOS support, as we are currently expecting with the originally Divinity: Original Sin.
