Tasty RPG Divinity: Original Sin now playable

Alpha opens for backers.

Lovely jubbly-looking turn-based RPG Divinity: Original Sin is now playable in alpha form for those who backed the game on Kickstarter. Specifically, it will be playable in a couple of hours - developer Larian just contacted us to say it was running a little late.

On offer is 15 to 20 per cent of the full game - roughly 10 to 15 hours of content. That's most of the starting city of Cyseal plus some good old fashioned dungeons nearby.

The alpha is single-player for now, but multiplayer will be added in the future.

The shackles are off in terms of talking about - and recording and streaming - the alpha, so expect a cascade of coverage to commence. Larian recorded its own meaty chunk of gameplay that I've posted below.

Our Paul Dean is in Belgium visiting Larian as I write. Expect his take on the game in the new year.

Divinity: Original Sin is due out February in full. A PC version will arrive first, then Mac, then Linux.
