Feature: Original-er sin

The joy of playing a great game before its superior sequel

I’m having a moment in Divinity: Original Sin. I’m lost in the limitless depths of my inventory, its small icons denoting vague categories which make me forget which character was meant to give what to whom, or where I put that unidentified sarong I swear I picked up in the last battle. Meanwhile, the NPCs in the market square around me are repeating their lines…

Yes, Baldur’s Gate 3 will build on the series’ existing story, say Larian

Baldur's Gate 3 is well out of the bag now and despite the lengthy gameplay reveal that Larian hosted at PAX East last month I have oh so many questions. So do you lot, it seems. Larian hosted an AMA yesterday to answer them all and though there were a few things they declined to answer, we've mostly rolled well on our Persuasion checks and come…

RPS asks: turn-based or real-time with pause combat?

Now that we've gotten a proper look at Baldur's Gate 3, the ol' war machines are firing up. Baldur's Gate games from years of yore featured the combat shared by other Infinity Engine games—real time action with the ability to pause and dictate to your party. Baldur's Gate 3, developed by those Larian folks of Divinity: Original Sin 2 fame, will have turn-based combat similar…

Baldur’s Gate 3 will let you toss your boots, barrels, even your buddies

At last we've gotten our first look at Baldur's Gate 3 and I—liker of both Baldur's Gate and Divinity: Original Sin 2—am feeling quite swell about what we've seen, but RPS have even more interview goodies yet. In the gameplay reveal this week, Larian CEO Swen Vincke takes off his character's boots and throws them at an enemy as a last-ditch escape manoeuvre. During an…

Feature: Gather your party

Baldur’s Gate 3 is nearly here, and it looks as good as you hope

If you play tabletop games like Dungeons & Dragons - heck, if you play a lot of video games like Hitman or XCOM where you rely on a blend of skill and luck - you'll know that it's more fun when everything goes wrong but you manage to make it through anyway. Things going according to plan are boring. This is why it was great…

Baldur’s Gate 3 will hit Steam Early Access this year

We won't be waiting too much longer to get our hands on Baldur's Gate 3, as it's making its way to Steam Early access later this year. Since it was announced at E3, Larian Studios have kept pretty quiet about the game. But with PAX East fast approaching, it looks like the studio also behind Divinity: Original Sin are getting ready for some big reveals…

Baldur’s Gate 3 may be out this year if you believe this goof-up by Google

Evidence is mounting for a Baldur's Gate 3 release date getting announced before the month is out. Better yet, that drop date (if we do in fact get one) could be before 2020 ends. Larian have already teased, well, something happening in February. Larian's CEO Swen Vincke's been doing the vaguetweeting thing. Now, Google have accidentally slipped up, mentioning Baldur's Gate 3 on a list…

Divinity: Original Sin 2’s free Order & Magic DLC makes it easier to keep a kitty as a pet

Divinity: Original Sin 2 has had a couple of free Gift Bags drop already. Think of them as small mutators that add little features to the base game which you can toggle on or off. The first bag added new customisation options and a respec mirror onboard the Lady Vengeance. Bag two had herb gardens, talent tweaks, and action point increases. But bag three, Order…

Divinity spin-off Fallen Heroes is on indefinite hold

Larian today announced that Divinity: Fallen Heroes, the combat-focused spin-off from Divinity: Original Sin 2, is on indefinite hold. First announced in March and due to launch this November, it just needs more time and resources than anyone has right now. It sounds like they do plan to return and pick it back up at some point, but don't hold your breath. Or do hold…

PC peeps can upload their saves to the cloud to take out and about on Nintendo's wee console, which can also upload back to the digital æther.

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Feature: "We're building a rollercoaster!"

Baldur’s Gate 3 announced, from the creators of Divinity: Original Sin

They call it Ceremorphosis. The excruciating seven day process by which a humanoid might transform into a Mind Flayer. Stick one illithid tadpole in the brain and one week later you’ve got an octopus for a head and a craving for more grey matter. And what better visual metaphor for the return of Baldur’s Gate: the adventure that lodged in the hearts and minds of…

The pets immortalised in videogames by their developer owners

Matthew Holland never planned to add his dogs to Divinity: Original Sin 2. It happened on a lark, but turned into a wholesome story about his two canine companions. Holland worked as a scripter at Larian, the studio behind the fantasy RPG. While they were designing Fort Joy, an introductory island prison, the team came up with a quest about two separated dogs who wanted…

Divinity: Fallen Heroes is sort of XCOM for Divinity: Original Sin 2, but doesn’t have its guns yet

“Hot diggity daffodil,” says I, reading a GDC email two weeks ago. “A ‘new and unannounced Divinity: Original Sin 2 title’, what a day!” Eagle eyed readers will have already spotted that the email did not in fact say ‘hot new in-depth RPG Divinity: Original Sin 3 revealed’, and Divinity: Fallen Heroes is indeed not that. I got a hands on with an early alpha…

Rich McCormick’s 5 best games of 2018

I realise, at the end of 2018, that I’ve spent much of the year digging back over games released in 2017 and earlier. That’s in part because I’ve been subject to the demands of evil overlord Graham, but also because I’ve been trapped in the gravity well of monster timesinks like Destiny 2 and Divinity 2. When I did reach escape velocity, I cherished my…

Steam Charts: I Was On Holiday Last Week Edition

I, Alice Bee, have returned from a week off and everything has changed. Matt is in the office now, and complained about having to get up at 8.15am. This complaint made me furious and I am telling everyone. My desk has been moved. There is no milk in the fridge. I am confused, and I can't remember all the HTML codes to write this very…

Divinity: Original Sin 2 added an official The Dark Eye GM campaign today

Divinity: Original Sin 2 is undoubtedly one of the best RPGs of the past two years running, but developers Larian still have some plans for it. Today they rolled out The Prison Of Shadows, a new campaign, based on Ulisses Spiele's popular German pen-and-paper setting The Dark Eye to be played with friends in D:OS2's tabletop-inspired Game Master mode. This also gave the studio an excuse…
