You might recall that way back in June 2014, we quite enjoyed a little RPG called Divinity: Original Sin. It earned a 9 from us, thanks engaging interactions with the environment and cool spell and effect interactions.

Its sequel is coming up on us quickly, with plans to arrive in early access in less than a month. The first build will include the first part of the campaign, but Larian is also including something pretty cool.

At PAX East, we got to try out the player-versus-player mode. It combines the cool environmental and spell interactions with a bite-sized tabletop miniature feel. The result is something I can see playing quite a lot with friends.

You’ll be able to give it a spin for yourself on September 15.
