    This is the sequel to Larian Studios' 2002 RPG Divine Divinity, it's been a LONG time in the making (I remember looking at early 3D "Divinity Engine" footage back in 2004...).

    It's out now on PC and 360 in Germany and CDV have just confirmed an american release "This Holiday Season".

    The game has received very positive reviews from German sites and publications (Extreme Players awarding the 360 version 86%).

    Some 360 gameplay from the German version of the game can be found here.

    Apparently there is still no UK Publisher attached to this but they're "still in talks".

    Oh and you can also turn in to a Dragon which looks kind of like Panzer Dragoon Orta...

    that's because the retail version is coming later. http://www.gamersgate.com/DD-KBAP/kings-bounty-armored-princess

    also very likely to show up on steam right before or on releasedate.

    also just appeared as a 'coming soon' on gamersgate http://www.gamersgate.com/DD-D2ED/divinity-ii-ego-draconis

    50 eurons is a nutty price though. Oh 30 pounds on the UK site is fine though, will get it for this.

    FWIW, I didn't like it (it was released in Germany a few months ago).

    It's a fun, hand-built world to explore, but the combat is so ridiculously free of fun, it feels like characters made out of paper battle each other with feathers, and the writing is dubious. I stopped playing it after 10 hours or so because it just annoyed me.

    So is this coming out on the 20th for PC and 360 then? Cool if so, two RPGs I want to play in the same month!? It's crazy I tell thee.

    Guessed as much, I asked about an update in the other thread, but it never came.. so figured it was thrown away in disgust. Haha.

    Oh right, that's what I asked about. Did you test it with the patch at all, Lou?

    This looks pretty good. In the clip, a narrator explains all about Divinity II.

    I LOVED Sacred 2 warts and all, games like this just get me hooked, they always have, I'm sure I'll have a brilliant time with this.

    Narrator's voice is forged from pure win.

    I'm waiting for any kind of English language 360 review if I'm honest, I'm interested to see how well the port has been handled before I make the purchase.

    Yeah, not getting that great performance on my MONSTER computer, so also interested to see/hear how well what the 360 version looks like.

    Still at the very beginning of the game, but enjoying it, even the weird crappy combat animations.

    G4 had a chat with the director at Larian Studios, who worked on the game, Swen Vincke. There's plenty of gameplay interspersed, and running on the display behind Swen.

    I'm waiting on the patch to clear up some of the bugs, the developers reckon at least one patch, possibly two will be released by the time the game gets a NA release.

    Quint, as a man I have long since admired, I need to know your thoughts on this game quick stat. ;)

    Finished the demo : All in all , i found it to be really enjoyable :)

    Sure , the production values aren't sky-high , the animations are kind of stiff and the character modeling is pretty weak, on the other hand the artwork is pretty nice with a goth-like vibe on structures and the voice overs are - surprise - pretty good.

    Framerate seems to be pretty consistent (minus some areas in the woods) too...

    Dunno , might get it when it gets cheap , it definitely got me interested.

    Cheers

    I enjoyed it, but then I knew I would. It's got some surprisingly nice environments and I enjoy the general art style of the world itself.

    The character models aren't the best in the world and the animation when they speak both serve to break a little immersion for me but it's not the end of the world particularly with the voice acting being as good as it is.

    The only thing really stopping me from running to the shops to grab this is time, I'm pretty sure I've got Borderlands for Christmas and then after that it's January, a month with a huge list of games being released that I'm very interested in (Darksiders, Mass Effect 2, Alpha Protocol etc).
  • Deleted user 22 December 2009 09:41:11
    That was suprisingly enjoyable. Most lower-level RPG's tend to end up crap on the Xbox but they appear to have done a good job with this. I agree with Quint on most of the points he's made - I get the feeling this'll have rather a lot of depth in it. When's it out? Is it out now?
