Divinity: Original Sin 2 - Launch Trailer.
As with Divinity: Original Sin, players can play solo or with up to three others in their party. Several pre-made characters with backstories are available to the player. Players are also able to create a custom character and choose their stats, race, gender, and origin story at the start of the game. Unlike the original game, players are also given the possibility to create an undead character of one of the available races. They can recruit up to three companions to assist them although mods in the Steam Workshop exist which increase the maximum number of party companions. Companions in your party are fully playable, and will potentially have different interactions with the environment and NPCs than the player character. Players are able to split up and individually control their party members, leading to potentially complex battle tactics and role-playing opportunities. The game features both on-line and local multiplayer modes, both competitive and cooperative. A skill crafting system allows players to mix and change their skills. The game also features a competitive multiplayer mode, where players are divided into two different teams and fight against each other in an arena map.
The game is set on the fantasy world of Rivellon, centuries after Divinity: Original Sin. Living beings on Rivellon have a form of energy known as Source, and individuals called Sourcerers can manipulate Source to cast spells or enhance their combat abilities. The Seven Gods of Rivellon had given up a portion of their collective Source power and infused it into a person, Lucian, known as the Divine, who used his powers to hold back the Void. However, Lucian died before the start of the game, which weakened the Veil between the Void and Rivellon, and monstrous creatures of the Void, guided by the dark deity the God King, have begun to invade Rivellon. These Voidwoken are drawn to the use of Source, and so an organization called the Divine Order is persecuting Sourcerors. At the start of the game, the player character is a Sourcerer who is captured by the Divine Order and sent to an island prison known as Fort Joy. On the way to Fort Joy, a gigantic Kraken Voidwoken attacks and sinks the ship, but the player character is saved from drowning by a mysterious voice, who calls the player "Godwoken".
On Fort Joy, the Godwoken witnesses the brutal regime of the Divine Order, led by Lucian's son Bishop Alexandar and his chief enforcer Dallis. Supposedly Sourcerors at Fort Joy are to be cured of their Source powers, but actually they are being "purged", turned into mindless husks. The Godwoken also learns of a tyrannical Sourcerer king called Braccus Rex, who had lived and died around 1000 years ago. The Godwoken escapes from the fortress and visits the Hall of Echoes, the realm of the Seven Gods, where the Godwoken encounters one of the Seven. The God explains that they rescued the Godwoken from drowning, and that the Godwoken must become the next Divine and hold back the Void. The weakened Veil has allowed the Void to enter Rivellon, and the Gods' powers are being drained.
Divinity: Original Sin 2 was scheduled to be released on September 14, 2017, on August 31, 2018, on January 31, 2019 and on September 4, 2019 by Bandai Namco Entertainment.
