Larian Studios was prepared to show off Divinity: Origin Sin and Divinity: Dragon Commander at this week's GamesCom, but unfortunately some unscrupulous fellow(s) saw fit to steal the PCs that the team was going to use for their press demonstrations. Word is that they had a backup plan in place, but are offering a $5000 reward to anyone who can help them get the PCs back:
$5000 Reward Offered for Stolen PCs Containing Divinity: Dragon Commander and Divinity: Original Sin Builds
Hey folks... this definitely isn't the way we wanted to kick off Gamescom!
Two PCs were stolen from Larian's booth in the business hall at Gamescom, containing early builds of Divinity: Dragon Commander and Divinity: Original Sin.
Larian is offering a $5000 reward for information leading to the identification of the culprit and return of the PCs. We're asking the game community to band together to track these criminals down and to get the games back!
The team is using backup PCs, so no issues there -- and if you have an appointment with Larian, there's no change -- but if you have any information about the culprits, head to Business Hall 4.2, Booth A-16 to let the team know. Oh, and you might as well stay for a demo.
As much as we'd all like to play the games early, I really hope the builds themselves don't get leaked online.
