The unboxing of Divinity:Original Sin and a call to action!

46 likes

Hello everybody!

Extremely busy times here at Larian as we're getting ready for release on June 30th so we'll keep it short. The most important takeaway from this update is that you need to fill in your shipping details if you're entitled to a physical reward. If we don't have your address, we can't ship.

Unboxing Divinity:Original Sin

There are two messages in the following video - what it's like to get physical with the Kickstarter Collector's Edition and why you need to fill in your shipping details now! 

Time to get those physical rewards

It's time to get those physical rewards so we really need your address

If you haven't created a Larian Vault account yet or if you haven't filled in your address (or if your address changed), please do so now. We'll start shipping things as soon as next week and are hoping to have all goods out of the door in the next couple of weeks.  

Shipping will happen in batches so if we have your details now, you'll be included in the first batch.

Steam Early Access codes will expire on release

Everybody who backed us on Kickstarter received  a Steam Early Access code. We promised however that you'll be able to select which platform you want to receive your digital download on, so on the day of release, the Kickstarter Early Access codes will stop working and you'll need to log in to the Larian Vault to select which platform you want to play on. You will then get a new code. 

If you purchased the game on Steam Early Access, don't worry, your codes will keep on working. This message only applies to the Steam Early Access codes that were given away to our backers. 

How to manage your pledge

The Larian Vault allows you to manage your pledge. In case you are wondering, that also includes everybody who backed via Paypal.

So, how does it work?

Go to https://www.larianvault.com Log in with your existing Larian Vault account or create a new one Once logged in, click the Kickstarter logo in the menu Fill in the email address that you use to log in on Kickstarter OR that you use to log in on Paypal Click the "Look up and link" button Check your email and click the link That's it!

Should anything go wrong or if you have questions, send a mail to kickstarter@larian.com. We're there to help you.

New Update on Steam Early Access - Go go Belgium!

When Belgium won their first match in the world cup we were so excited that we released an ad-hoc Steam Early Access update. In case you missed it, here's the link to the full changelist. 

You should all cross your fingers that they'll win the next match because who knows what will happen then.... 

Missed the stream in which we showed the editor?

Joachim, our lead level designer and Swen showed off the game yesterday on Twitch TV. There's quite a few spoilers but tons of questions were answered so you might want to have a look

Shout out for our neighbours!

Will you be a lover ? A traitor ? a fighter ? Or a friend ? Sounds a lot like Divinity:Original Sin choice and consequence, right? But it's not - it's the tagline of Sunset, a narrative-driven first-person videogame that takes place in a single apartment in a fictional South American city in the early 1970s and it's made by the other game studio in Gent, none other than the award winning Tale of Tales. 

Check out their Kickstarter page - they just got funded but we're sure they'll welcome extra backers to make their next game that much better!

      already half a day and still no dowload :(

    2. Creator LordMatsu on June 29, 2014

      It's June 30th in Belgium... does that mean it won't come out til it's June 30th in the whole world before we can play the game?

    3. Creator S. van Hengel on June 28, 2014

      When do we get the digital keys for steam?
      I just got a extra collectors edition at home and dont want to open it :)

    4. Creator Gonchi on June 27, 2014

      I received confirmation this morning, thanks Larian.

    5. Creator Gonchi on June 26, 2014

      I sent an e-mail to BackupDOS[at]larian[dot]com, but never received a confirmation or reply. Was I supposed to receive one? Should I fire off another e-mail?

    6. Creator Fritjof - DreamT-WoOS-KC:D-Shadow on June 26, 2014

      Will there be more customization in the final version for your characters? Compared to the Beta. Like Portraits in perticular, so you can look like your actual character?

    7. Creator Raze on June 23, 2014

      No, there has been no estimate given.

    8. Creator Monsta on June 23, 2014

      Any news on exact Linux release date? As I understand it won't be the same day as for Windows and Mac, but can you tell us - when?

    9. Creator Helena on June 20, 2014

      ...never mind, I just received the email confirming that a non-Steam version is available for those who want it. Thanks for being so decent about this, Larian.

    10. Creator Helena on June 20, 2014

      The physical stuff looks awesome, and it's great to see the 'Kickstarter Edition' box with different art (though I personally wouldn't have minded if it were the same as the retail version). Just to second Gonchi, it would be nice to hear some confirmation of whether the DRM-free discs will eventually happen, especially since I would guess many people aren't aware that the boxed version requires Steam (I only found out because I happened to be browsing the Kickstarter comments). I hate to keep banging on about this, but the game itself is by far the most important aspect as far as I'm concerned - all the other stuff is great, but it's not the main thing I pledged for.

      Anyway, good luck with the final run-up to release; I can imagine it must be hellishly busy right now. I apologise for blowing up at you guys in the comments section the other day - I still think my anger was justified under the circumstances, but I should have waited to see if the problem could be fixed before ranting about it.

    11. Creator Jim on June 20, 2014

      I asked this in the forums a while back and never got an answer. I backed the game at the $25 tier and meant to come back and upgrade to a physical tier, but didn't before the Kickstarter ended. I bought a collectors edition the day they were announced because that is what I wanted to upgrade my pledge too. My question is, since I'm a Kickstarter backer, will my CE box be the special KS box or just the regular box?

    12. Creator Gonchi on June 20, 2014

      @Larian; No mention at all about the DRM-Free discs?

    13. Creator gandalf.nho on June 19, 2014

      @Larian, the Golden Grail will be available for digital-only KS backers?

    14. Creator Stabbey on June 19, 2014

      @Brian Levinsen - Big patch on day one. And there will also be additional patches after the game to add in other things not finished yet.

    15. Creator LordCrash - OD | OOoE | WoOS on June 19, 2014

      By the way, D:OS is on sale even before release right now during the Steam sale (20% off).

    16. Creator LordCrash - OD | OOoE | WoOS on June 19, 2014

      Tipp: watch minute 4:30... ;)

    17. Creator LordCrash - OD | OOoE | WoOS on June 19, 2014

      @De Joeri
      It is. Just watch the video. ;)

    18. Creator De Joeri on June 19, 2014

      @Larian, Is "The Golden Grail DLC" mentioned on steam included in the Kickstarter version? If I am not mistaking, the Zandalor's Trunks DLC and the soundtrack are.

      It seems to be a bit dull to have to buy a DLC already on release date.
      And then even together in a pack where you already have the most of it.

    19. Creator Ryan "Keokuk" Smith on June 19, 2014

      Good luck in the coming release :)

    20. Creator garkham on June 19, 2014

      Oh my god I'm just extra happy ! :D
      Hope guys you will make things clear with customs (or a tracking number) so I can endly get one of my KS games ! Seems like French customs like to keep my parcels instead of letting me put me hands on... XD

    21. Creator Diggle Hyde on June 19, 2014

      What about the DLC? I have the kickstarter key and want to buy the DLC. SInce the key will expire on release, what will happen with the DLC?

    22. Creator Andy - sinner of Original Sin ^^ on June 19, 2014

      @Dwelfusius: sorry to see you didn't get an answer yet.
      Just take it easy, in worst case you can get a normal T to use as PJ. :-)

    23. Creator Robrecht - Weresheep.net of Original Sin on June 19, 2014

      I'm climbing from under the rock I've been living under whilst finishing my thesis, and I must say Larian, your timing is impeccable! My defense is the 27th so I'll get to play the full version pretty much right when I have the time.

      Congratulations on how far you all have come with this project. You sure can be proud of yourselves!

    24. Creator LordCrash - OD | OOoE | WoOS on June 19, 2014

      Damn, how awesome is that?! Can't wait for my "KICKSTARTER BACKER EDITION"! :)

    25. Creator Runeweaver – Tormented Teacher of WoOS on June 19, 2014

      Looking good; also: yay, t-shirts are on the way! (Also, it would have been mind-boggingly *awsome* if the Belgian team had worn weresheep shirts during their first match.)

      And, on a final note: JUST 11 MORE DAYS!! I– I think I have to lie down now...

    26. Creator Brian Levinsen on June 19, 2014

      Awesome, really looking forward to playing the final game. But I suppose the game is done with all voice acting and such, if they have the DVD done already? Or will there be a patch as soon as you install the game? If the Voices are note there then it will be quite a big download.

    27. Creator Dwelfusius | Were-axlotl of Original Sin on June 19, 2014

      @larian (sorry but sending goodies stuff is nearing so I desperatly trying to get an answer :s)

      Dear Larian,

      as I recall female t's were promised.I backed extra on top of my quite substantial pledge (which is totally worth it don't get me wrong) to have some T's with larian d:os art and weresheeps -> but in the vault I still see no way of choosing sex. Am I missing something? I'm not one of the feministic kind, but hell I want a tshirt that fits :s I don't think that is too much to ask.

      Sorry to resort to putting it up here but I have not yet received a reply on numerous questions basically through all other channels, which is ok I get that you are busy.But please find the time to reply to my question, thanks.

      ALSO, small snafu, I thought we could get alpha pledge back and I emailed with your support about that multiple months ago (I don't want the money, I just want the larian vault value to get extra stuff to promote D:OS even more! =) )but have yet to receive refund or feedback.Unless I'm mistaken about the alpha, it was all very hazy to me, any of the other forum members care to explain a bit the solution that was offered then for the people that backed extra (higher tier) for alpha?

      Please do not feel insulted, I know you are all busy and I admire all the work you do.. But I want to brag about my nicely fitting weresheep T .
      http://www.larian.com/forums/ubbthreads.php…
      matters are getting more pressing, please any reply at all :(

    28. Creator Stefan >> DEXYD << on June 19, 2014

      I should wait to watch the vids till I'm at howe, where I have sound....

    29. Creator Eric-Adventurer of the Wormworld/Sithrah on June 19, 2014

      @Stefan
      It does mention in the video that they are still waiting for the artbooks and other items to arrive so there is an artbook coming as well.

    30. Creator Datayum on June 19, 2014

      Question : If I choose GOG, will it have the Linux version when GOG launches Linux support during autumn ?

    31. Creator Mr.Monttu on June 19, 2014

      Yeah... i hope this game sells well and gets kick ass reviews what it deserves. Go Larian, go.. GOTY 2014! :)

    32. Creator Stabbey on June 19, 2014

      "The Larian Vault allows you to manage your pledge. In case you are wondering, that also includes everybody who backed via Paypal."

      Oh, does this mean that I can add in more money to get an extra D:OS code?

    33. Creator StromIV on June 19, 2014

      The time is at hand!!!! It had been an interesting ride and I am glad to see one of the major campaigns I backed so close to launching!

    34. Creator Plumpbiscuit on June 19, 2014

      It's been an epic, epic ride since your initial reveal of this game two years ago. Now, we're just days away from release, thank you for all your tireless and hard work and I've no doubt this will be one of the best video games I've ever played!

    35. Creator HungryCats on June 19, 2014

      I confess, the phrase "getting a physical reward" sounds a little risque, but that's probably just me. :D

      Definitely looking forward to playing the game!

    36. Creator Coastal Pete on June 19, 2014

      It sure is. Go Belgium! Just not against England! (If we make it).

    37. Creator Del137 on June 19, 2014

      Best game of this year, thank you!
