    So if you played the original game, you'll be happy to know that DOS2 raised over $2 million USD on Kickstarter and has just now come out on Steam Early Access; you can buy it here for $45 USD.



    For those of you who haven't played/heard of Divinity, it is a turn based RPG where combat is performed by using Combat Points which are gained each turn. All abilities have a type and the environment comes into play when using them. This adds a fair bit of strategy to the combat. Is it raining? Use electric type moves. You see a large patch of oil on the ground, you can wait for enemies to run onto it and light it on fire. Their melee units run through it their archers/mages are still hitting you from the other side - put the fire out with a water based move and create a smokescreen so they can't see you.

    The game, like its predecessor, features beautiful landscapes with lots of detail. The first Act is available on Early Access at the moment and apparently features 8-12 hours worth of gameplay. Act II is soon to follow. One of the big additions to the new game is you can now have 4 players in the game instead of just 2 in the original game (or 4 if you want 2 people to play as henchmen with a mod). Along with the PvE elements of the game, there is now a PvP arena where you can test yourself against your friends. One of the most exciting features from the final Kickstarter stretch goals is a Dungeon Master feature which allows one player to setup a dungeon for their friends to play through. I'm looking forward to delving more into that as it comes out.

    The game once again has a deep storyline which you can delve into. There isn't a lot of voice acting in the game yet but I'm sure as it is fleshed out it will be added (much like the first game). This time you can select your race and you have a lot more character customisation options which will affect how NPCs react to you and the overall story for you. I'm not sure how this will influence the story as a whole if you are in the party.

    Anyone keen to try it out? I know @Bosl will be on board and I'd say you'll enjoy this @iBrez.

    Nice man! Yeh I was so sad I missed it. Stumbled upon it when it came onto Early Access.

    Have you played much of it yet or waiting for more content?
