Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a single- and multiplayer top-down, party-based role-playing game with pen & paper RPG-like levels of freedom.It features turn-based combat, a strong focus on systematic gameplay and a well-grounded narrative.
The theme of Divinity: Original Sin 2 is how your origins affect who you are and what chances you get in life.
At the start of the game, you pick a single character and determine your starting stats, race, and origin story.
You’ll be able to recruit up to three companions, each of whom is just as detailed as the character you’re playing, with their own origin story and motivation to help you in your quest.
This makes it possible for each companion to become a player character in multiplayer mode; every party member is equally important to the whole.
In multiplayer, up to 4 players can play together, either cooperatively or competitively.
During competitive questing, you’ll pursue different plot-lines from other players, often because your personal motivations are in conflict with those of the party.
There’s no obligation to compete, of course. Many party members will manage to balance their own interests with those of the party. Should you find yourself in conflict, know that it’s always possible to make up afterwards.
The important thing here is that it’s you who gets to make that choice.
Like its predecessor, Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a game about systems and using those systems to get your way. Before you know it, you’ll be manipulating the environment, using new types of elemental interactions, and exploiting people’s weaknesses to achieve your goals.
That systematic approach now also applies to the narrative. A new dialog system will give you many more options to persuade both NPCs and your companions. You’ll quickly discover that nearly all dialogs in the game are different depending on who is doing the talking.
