Larian Studios has announced a few days ago, their new title that is under development, a new game from the series that made them famous, Divinity Original Sin, a prequel for Divine Divinity, the first game from this series.
This comes after two sequels, Beyond Divinity and Divinity 2, Beyond Divinity being just an extension to the first game, using the same graphic engine and gameplay while Divinity 2 managed to adopt a modern style, the game is full 3D, we can control the character from a third person view.
Seems that Larian Studios is trying to adopt a new strategy, the new game will be very different from Divinity 2 in terms of gameplay and style.
Divinity Original Sin will be turn based, no more real time fights, we will control two character in single-player, a male warrior and a female wizard. There will also be a multiplayer mode allowing up to four players to play in the cooperative mode.
At a first look on the official announcement video, the combat style looks like the one from the Final Fantasy games, we will have to see if this fighting style will work and will keep the players connected to the atmosphere.
Overall it looks like a great decision made by Larian considering that is hard to beat Skyrim or the recent Risen 2 that are having the same style as Divinity 2, there are some RPG fans not contented with the 3D perspective.
Divinity Original Sin will be released in Q1 2013 and will be available for both PC and Mac.
