'Divinity: Original Sin' (ALL) Gets Early Access Update, Collector's Edition

by Rainier on May 16, 2014 @ 12:22 p.m. PDT

Divinity: Original Sin is an action/RPG featuring cooperative multiplayer, a full adventure-building toolset, incredible freedom in character development and a ton of other features.

The orcs of Tanoroth are on the march, wielding magic never seen before: bloody, deadly, reality‐bending. The free nations of Rivellon are about to fall beneath their blades. Yet there are two unlikely heroes who can resist this savage magic: a condemned warrior released from his chains and a mystic heroine restored to life. Will they be strong enough to cope with the sins of their past? And will they be strong enough to counter the even greater threat that hides behind the marching orcs?

Of the 3,000 English-language units of the Collector's Edition, 1,500 have been claimed by Kickstarter backers. The remaining 1,500 are available for 69.99 EUR, exclusively at the official Larian website.

With just a couple thousand physical copies available for purchase and absolutely packed with content, the Collector's Edition is a must-have for any Divinity fan - or any RPG aficionado.
