Divinity: Original Sin II Out on Early Access, Trailer

It's going to probably take quite a while before we'll see the final official release of Divinity: Original Sin II, especially since Larian Studios CEO Swen Vincke hinted that the game might be delayed to 2017. In the meantime, though, we'll have a chance to taste an unpolished version of the early parts of the game, thanks to the Early Access build that has been released on Steam for $44.99/€44.99/£29.99. The game is also supposed to come out on GOG's own Games in Development program, though there is no date for that yet.

Here's the press release:
