Divinity: Original Sin 2 now out on Early Access

Posted on September 16, 2016

Divinity Original Sin 2, the 4-player co-op adventure/strategy RPG, has been released onto Steam Early Access. For those who are confused or upset  by the early release: the game is due out in its entirety sometime in 2017 and the Early Access version will only contain the first Act.

From the game’s Steam page: “You’ll get immediate access to Act 1 which currently contains around 8-12 hours of the game as well as the PvP Arena mode. You will receive the full game upon release. Be aware that there are still some rough edges and that certain features are missing. Bugs will be fixed, performance will be improved, and new features and improvements will be added regularly during the next months.”

As somebody who is very much looking forward to getting my hands on this game, I am a bit torn as to whether I buy in early or not. What do you think? Should an RPG be releasing in Early Access or should we leave that muddy territory to sandbox survival games?
