Larian Studios have announced the Early Access release date for Divinity: Original Sin II. The title will appear on Steam on September 15, 2016, containing the first act of the game, "Fort Joy". The game will cost $44.99. After completing one of the game's backstories or customizing their own, players will find themselves quarantined in Fort Joy at the whims of the Magisters of the Divine Order, who seek to cure the player's magical powers.
Having completed their successful Kickstarter campaign in September 2016, Larian is looking to up the ante for this sequel by doubling the number of cooperative players from two to four, increasing reactivity to player decisions, and expanding on the original's combat system. The game is planned for a full release later this year.
