Divinity: Original Sin 2 was one of the best games of 2017. We loved it, and judging by the game’s sales a whole lot of you loved it, too. How, then, do you go about making an excellent game even better? Make more of it, naturally. That’s exactly what’s happening with an upcoming mod that not only adds a new world, but a whole new RTS system.
Still not sure what the fuss is about? Check out our full Divinity: Original Sin 2 PC review.
Into the Abyss will add a new world to explore, charging you with deciding the fate of Rivellon when Damian returns to make war on the realm. Plans include vehicles, a family system, and the opportunity to raise pets. The RTS system is perhaps the most interesting addition, with large scale combat and building construction, where you’ll create your own faction and lead them across numerous battles.
An alpha is set to begin testing in the near future, with many of the systems - including building, companions, romance, and families - already implemented. You can keep track of the progress over on the ModDB page.
It’s an ambitious project to be sure, but the notion of some proper RTS battles into the world of Divinity: Original Sin 2 is too cool to ignore.
