In a world where the Gods are dead, you play a wielder of forbidden magic, quarantined in the prison colony of Fort Joy. The Magisters of the Divine Order want to "cure" you of your powers. But the Order has secrets of its own. Secrets that threaten everyone. If the world remains godless, chaos will rule. Its time for a new Divinity. Choose your race and origin story and see how differently the world reacts. Gather your party and blast your opponents with different elements in deep tactical turn-based combat. Explore the vast and layered world of Rivellon alone or with up to 4 players in drop-in/drop-out cooperative play. Divinity: Original Sin 2 is an entirely new experience built on the next-gen Divinity Engine, with a new UI, an all-new art-style, and advanced roleplay systems. Everything that made the original great returns: Go anywhere you want, kill anyone, find endless ways to solve problems and gather your ultimate RPG party.
One of the best and most exciting games I have played in a long time. If you want to get lost (as I do) in role-playing games, instead of completing the main quest, and explore every corner of the game world, then I can only recommend this game. I didn't...
get far in the first 10 hours (still in 'Fort Joy but I turned around a few times and completed small quests. Cause I didn't want to miss 'exciting'.
Similar to other RPGs, you can customize your main character and assign an initial class to him or her. However, by leveling up and distributing skill points, you can direct this early decision into other paths. There are plenty of opportunities to collect and sell Loot. Thanks to comrades (up to max. 3) and a 'joint' Inventory (you can simply drag and drop the items around) you have even more inventory spaces. The combat system was completely new territory for me, although I have often played turn-based strategy games like Civilization. After an initial familiarization phase and good tutorial notes, however, you will be left quite alone from a certain point in time. As a newcomer, you should be prepared to repeat a few fights X times until you have understood the fighting system correctly. However, you can save the game at any time (even in dialog before a big fight). So if the situation seems hopeless, you can restart the fight at any time without having frustrated the last 15 minutes before the fight in the sand. F5 will become your new friend;)I find the graphics and atmosphere successful. The camera is freely movable and can be turned easily and at any time. The role-playing options in conversations also ensure that even reloading a score before a fight leads to different perspectives if you start the dialogue with a companion. The dialogues convey a wide range of emotions and even the team members add their mustard one by one before important decisions are made (e. g. whether we should kill or spare someone). Note: I'm playing this game in English, so I can't rate the German subtitles or dubbing. Who likes to spend countless hours full of captivating role-playing action, I can only recommend this game. If you prefer Hack&Slash-Action a la Diablo, this game is definitely nothing.
