You Can Play Divinity: Original Sin 2 Starting in September

The RPG's Steam Early Access version launches soon.


Divinity: Original Sin II, the sequel to the acclaimed 2014 RPG, will be available through Early Access in a matter of weeks, developer Larian Studios has announced.

Many of the details remain unknown, but the unfinished version of the game will be available on Steam starting on September 15. It'll include an early portion of the campaign and the competitive online Arena mode. It'll cost $45--unless you backed the game on Kickstarter at an appropriate tier, in which case you'll soon receive a code.

Those who pick up the game through Early Access will get to check out many of the sequel's new features. These include expanded story and dialogue systems, an adaptive music system, and more. You can read about all of this in GameSpot's new preview.

Origin Sin II is slated for a release before the end of the year, yet with that window fast approaching, Larian has yet to offer a more specific date. It was successfully funded through Kickstarter last year, raising more than $2 million.
