  • Divinity: Original Sin 2

    Hello everyone!! So, I've been playing this game on PC (soon to be released for consoles) and I have to say it's my Game of The Year 2017. I'm absolutely in love with it, didn't feel this way about an RPG since Dragon Age: Origins!!

    A bit of context: D:OS2 is an indie game, developed by the belgian Larian Studios and funded through Kickstarter (reaching the required goal of 500k USD in just 12 hours, ended up raising over 2 million USD). It's the sequel to Divinity: Original Sin, but taking place 1200 years after the events of the first game so it's pretty much a stand alone game. It's a C-RPG featuring lots of dialogues, decisions that impact the world and a turn based combat system... The amount of liberty and customization is beyond anything I've seen in a game, apart from tabletop D&D... You can play it with friends too! And it has a Game Master mode for you to create your own adventures for you and your friends...

    So, are you playing it? On Steam or GoG? Do you have plans for playing it with friends? Let me know

    I have never heard of it, but i did get something from this post. Games with the word "Origin" or any of its variants in the title are really good

      I absolutely adore Divinity series, I think I spammed our Line chat about it (I suspect you were asleep at that time). I love Divinity 2 where you can turn into dragon and BURN. I adore Divinity Original Sin ED, where you have amazing world and very funny and thoughtful gameplay, as well as an interesting plot. Haven't tried the D:OS 2 since I'm busy with my new studies a lot but I can't wait until I have time for it.

      Honestly, Divinity is a great rival to DA in my heart, especially since I also like how developers behave and do business. When devs are not a giant company they listen to fans more eagerly and attentively and Larian's story is all about them being in the non-stop contact with fan community (as far as I know).

      Also yes, I have Divinity Original Sin on Steam and Divinity 2 on GoG. Waiting to buy the freshest and newest Original Sin 2 during the Black Friday sales.

          i havnt played it myself but ive only heard praise from those who have. i think people love it so much because it is literally the anti-thesis to todays trend of RPGs being pushed more and more down the action route. divinity seems to be the closest to an oldschool pen and paper RPG that any video game has ever been. theres even a multiplayer DM mode, where you can basically build a dungeons and dragons campaign and run it with your friends in game.

          i definitely want to check it out at some point

            "Torment: Tides of Numenera" is highly recommended if you loved Divinity. It's the old school RPG style like Divinity. Very lore intensive. Actually reminds me of those books you used to read where you had to make decisions and flip to this page if you made this decision or flip to this other page if you decided this other way. The game has something crazy like endless possible endings pending on your actions and choices you made throughout the game. A+

              I've just finished it for the first this sunday. And its my favourite game of the year too. I hope some of my friends wil get it at the christmas sales on Steam so i can play again with them. I think il take one of the origin characters next time. Played a self made lizard this time. With Red Prince, Lohse and Ifan as companions.

              I was a bit sceptic at first because the fights are turn based. Im not a fan of that usually. But the battle system is so fun with all the elemental effects and combinations i began to love it to be able to take my time and try different things.

                It's absolutely a blast!! I hope Larian/GOG implements Cross-play in the near future! It would be awesome to play with people that play it on Steam (I'm on GOG)... Many games have cross-play in GOG right now, DOS2 has to be next!!

                What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
                It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:

                What happens if I break the rules?
                At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Sr Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                Posting Suggestions
                In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion.
                Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section.

                3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available.

                4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum.

                6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:
