Now Playing: Divinity: Original Sin 2 - Update #37: Release Date & New Patch

Coinciding with the announcement, Larian has released a new update for the Early Access version. This introduces a new relationship system for companions and two new areas, along with changes to the crafting and character-creation systems. These additions are discussed by Larian in the video above.

Original Sin II supports four-player co-op (up from two players in Original Sin) and a variety of expanded features from the previous game. Player choice in the narrative, in particular, has been expanded for this game. Thanks to a successful 2015 Kickstarter campaign, which raised $2 million and met a number of stretch goals, the game will feature the aforementioned GM mode and other content.

The game's predecessor, Divinity: Original Sin, received a 9/10 in GameSpot's review and was named our PC Game of the Year in 2014. That game eventually made its way to PS4 and Xbox One, but Original Sin II has not yet been confirmed for consoles.
