Kickstarter Update #29 - Play Divinity: Original Sin 2 RIGHT NOW

Hello Kickstarters!

This is a busy week for us, so we'll get right down to it. Waste no time, that's our motto! We shoot from the hip and don't beat about the bush. When there’s something important to say, we’ll going hell for leather to make sure you’r- … what?!  

Oh fine, here's Swen with the news:

   

How to Get Access

That's right, as of RIGHT THIS SECOND, a day before it goes into Early Access, you can play Divinity: Original Sin 2! To get your Steam key, just follow the instructions below.

Warning: This is your key for Early Access AND the full game. If you give this key to anyone else, then they'll get the full game at release.  

Warning: The game is currently available on Steam only. If you claim a Steam key now you can NOT swap it for a GOG key later. We expect the game will be available on GOG in October.

To get your Steam key, please:

1. Create an account at/log in to https://www.larianvault.com

2. Once logged in, click on the D:OS2 Kickstarter link in the top menu. If you haven’t linked Larian Vault to your Kickstarter account, you’ll be prompted to do so. 

3. Once your accounts are linked, click on the menu item "Your Choices & Input". In the list of rewards, look for the item "Divinity: Original Sin 2 Digital Download" (for some tiers, this reward will be called "Divinity: Original Sin 2 Digital Collector's Edition Download"). 

4. Select Steam. Click OK. Then click the link "Available! Claim now!". This will generate your Steam key. 

5. Once you have your key, activate it on Steam as you would any other game (Click "Games" in the toolbar, click "Activate a product on Steam", and follow the instructions given) 

6. Wait patiently for the game to download. (Note: Patience optional.)

    

And if you want to share the good news with your non-backer friends, you can always send them to Steam, where they can add Divinity: Original Sin 2 to their wishlists and purchase the game when it goes live tomorrow!

   

What is ‘Early Access’ Anyway?  

Just to remind you all - this is an early access version of the game. It’s to make sure we’re going down the right path, to let you test a lot of the dialogs and systems that we’re working on.  

Early Access includes two sections of the game: Act 1 of the campaign, and the PvP arena.

Act 1 gives you the chance to explore (and escape) Fort Joy, a camp where the Magisters bring Sourcerers to make sure they are not a threat to society, and the surrounding swamps.  

The PvP arena is where you can battle your friends (or strangers) online or over LAN. There are a range of maps and two game types to get you going so you can enjoy combat with high-level characters and skills.

We’ll have our notebooks ready, so please let us know what you think on our forums!

  

Streams  

Of course, not everyone will be able to claim their Steam key right now. If you’re not able to get the game just yet, but want to keep the hype as high as possible, then we’ve got you covered.  

Over the next three days we’ll be showing off the game with some of our favourite youtubers - kicking off with Angry Joe at 2pm PT (22:00 Berlin / 9pm London). Keep an eye on Twitter and Facebook for more information!

  

In Conclusion…  

Haha! Like you’re still reading this. Seriously, you could be playing the game right now - I seriously doubt you’re doing anything other than yelling at Steam to download the game faster right now. I could write whatever I wanted down here. Wibble wibble potato trampoline. See?  

But regardless, we hope you enjoy the game and we can’t wait to hear what you think of it! Let us know on Twitter, Facebook, or on the Larian forums. We’re very excited about the path we’ve been going down, and we can’t wait to finally share the journey with you.

      The manual and soundtrack should be done for the full release.

      You really shouldn't be loosing saves. Even after the last update, when save compatibility was broken, people could still switch back to the previous version (in a Steam beta branch) to continue existing playthroughs. Next time before quitting, Alt-Tab out of the game and check the save folder (and zip/copy the saves).
      Each save is a folder in the '..\Documents\Larian Studios\Divinity Original Sin 2\PlayerProfiles\_Profile_Name_\Savegames' folder.

      With D:OS EE, one person ran into a problem where an anti-virus program (Comodo Cloud Antivirus, installed without them noticing as part of a browser download) created a sandbox for the game's My Documents folder, so each time they restarted the game they would have to create a profile again, etc, with the previous sessions saved to different folders in a c:\'CCAV' folder.

      If that doesn't help, please email supportdos2@larian.com.

      Brilliant, and highly enjoying the alpha, even if I do lose my save every time I log in (gives me a chance to experiment a bit)

      One question though, what about the digital manual / soundtrack. Will they be available in the not too distant future?

      thanks for the warning i will wait until october then. hrhr no preassure.

      anyway as always great update i did not expect anything less from you guys though

      I assume you got help, since the pledge is linked? If not, email supportdos2 at larian.com.

    5. Cameron Cottle on

      I updated my email since supporting this and now I can't get my link. Can I please get some help?

    6. Constantine Antonakos on

      Wish we could get both GOG and Steam! :-)

    7. Raze_Larian on

      After the first (backer-only) update 27, the next update was called 27 in the title, etc, since it was the 27th public update, but Kickstarter still counts the backer-only updates, so it was update 28 as far as they were concerned. Jumping to 29 brings the numbering in line again.

      Why did the updates jump from 27 to 29?

      @Jesse Dylan Watson
      The only choices are Steam or GOG. No console versions have been confirmed. Currently the focus is on the game itself; other platforms may be announced later in development, or after the full release.
      The keys for D:OS EE in some of the tiers (or add-on) were also Steam/GOG only, due to the relative difficult of providing console keys. That and the involvement of a publisher for the console version of EE, that wasn't involved in the PC version.

      .
      @Tentacle Blue
      Yes, once the details have been finalized, and stuff is closer to going into production, there will be hoodie and t-shirt size charts provided by the manufacturers.

      So far I have only one complaint and that is the pose of Female Inquisitor it looks rather like she is going to break her spine...

    12. Jesse Dylan Watson on

      If we wait, can we have a PS4 key instead? Or are Steam/GoG our only choices? My computer is aging, and the first game runs so nicely on my PS4 and is so fun to play with my lady on the sofa.

      Excited to play - but want GoG, oh well I can wait i guess

      I just started the game, I love all the options in the dialogues, but i hate when my choice isn't respected, and the story progresses as if i chose something different. I don't wanna spoiler here. so is there somewhere to post about things we think could be bugs/hickups in the story lines? is steam forum the answer?

    16. Brasseur Frederic on

      I've got a suprise for you Larian Studio! I'll send it tomorrow in your mail box! :P

      yea guys it seems fixed for me now

    18. Pauwels Vik on

      error seems fixed ;) got my steam key

    19. Fitheach on

      Would it be a good idea if the site allowed us to select GOG at this point?
      That way you have a heads up on the number of keys etc. Then when the keys are available they'll just show up on the site.

    20. Creoterra on

      Same error here, looks like the system handing out keys is likely botched atm

      Gonna try it. Iunderstand since its early access my characters with all the abilities and skills they shall accrue shall not be kept once the final version of the game is initiated. But oh well lol

      I have to say, the music of divinity orignal sin 2 (on menu screen) is so fantastic!! I record and replay again and again!!!! wow the voice part is so amazing ! I love it!!!

      I'll just wait for the GOG.
      I'll be asking my buddies to download the game for me. -_-

      I didn't read the update, because i thought: yeah, whatever, it's just one more day of waiting.

      Now I'm sad, because i could have played this evening and now it's bed time :(.

      Congratulations on the early access, shaping up to be a great game :)

    45. Christian Gillenwater on

      really excited to play this game though i would like to ask is it ok if we stream/record any of this game? i just dont wanna break any rules.

    46. kvark on

      Good to see you making steady progress! Hope you'll not leave Linux behind (like the last time), I'll be waiting for GoG/Linux release of DOS2.

    47. Greg Dawson on

      I love and respect the way you guys run your studio. The passion on display is infectious and I can't wait to see how your labour of love is progressing! Thank you for inviting us to join you in this journey.

      @Rafael, we have no definite plans for a Mac version at this stage. We've always said we were concentrating on PC only and would look into other platforms further down the line.

      @Fade_to_Black, have fun!

    49. Rafael Masoni on

      Is there any way for you to release a Mac client on Early Access or day one? Or is it more likely to come out after the full game, like last time?
