Larian Studios has announced that the long-awaited sequel to Divinity: Original Sin is coming September 14, 2017.

In addition to earlier announcements about the inclusion of a Game Master Mode, Larian Studios is celebrating this announcement with an Early Access patch featuring a brand new companion relationship system, upgraded character creation and crafting, and other additional content discussed below.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a tabletop-style RPG with five playable races and a tag system which allows players to shape their character's background and motivations – choices that will dictate how they play the game. Players will also have the option to play with friends with the introduction of a co-op mode, allowing up to four players to work together to achieve goals or compete with individual priorities in mind.

Tactical combat returns from Divinity: Original Sin with improved elemental interactions and more powerful skills. The sequel also introduces a new spellcrafting system and the possibility to challenge other players to PvP combat in demanding battle areas.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 is available for Early Access play here.
