If you love computer RPGs and haven’t played Divinity: Original Sin 2, you’re missing out on one of the best games in the genre – and this year, if reviews are to go by. There’s a lot more in store though, from mods to a few “surprises” that Larian Studios founder Swen Vincke says are in store for players.
Speaking to PC Gamer about the modding community, he believes that the number of mods will only increase in the coming months. When you consider that the Steam Workshop already has 700 mods, that’s saying something.
“What I really hope is that we’re going to see adventures appear,” says Vincke about what he’d really like to see emerge. He also talked about inviting modders over to the studio’s office to create new mods within a week.
“Somebody made the Noisy Crypt, that was one of the guys that came here, he made a 40-minute adventure. I hope we’re going to see more and more of those come up because I really want adventures that we can play in co-op where I actually don’t know what the story is. That would please me tremendously.
“But again there’s already loads of really cool stuff in there. We have a couple of things that are in the works but we’ll only announce them when we’re ready. There’s stuff coming, for sure.”
As for what’s coming next for the franchise, be it a sequel or a number of sequels, Vincke said that, “We have a couple of surprises planned. But we’re going to work on the patch just now, then we’re going to work in silence for a little bit and then…yeah, I’m pretty sure there will be at least one big surprise in there.”
Could that be Divinity: Original Sin 2 – Enhanced Edition? Perhaps some free post-launch content? Time will tell but the studio has a strong record of supporting its games. The first Divinity: Original Sin received an Enhanced Edition about a year after its launch that added new quests, voice acting, improved story beats and much more.
