Divinity Original Sin: The Board Game Announced By Larian Studios (VIDEO)
From the studio that brought to the world Divinity Original Sin and Divinity Original Sin II, Larian Studios announces a board game spin-off! Based on the second game, the team launched a crowdfunding campaign and within hours of launch reached their $160,000 goal. Suffice to say, it’s already been a success. As with any Kickstarter, there are tiered rewards for backers and stretch goals folks can unlock after the minimum goal has been attained. Check out the introductory trailer below for a sneak peek:
“Divinity Original Sin: The Board Game is an epic adventure game set in the world of Rivellon,” reads the official Kickstarter page. “Up to 4 players take their heroes on a branching, narrative adventure, filled with tactical combat and meaningful choices. Thanks to the Chronicle System, the choices you make will impact not just your own story, but the future of the Divinity Original Sin universe. Based on the award-winning Divinity Original Sin II video game by Larian Studios, the board game developed by Lynnvander Studios expands Divinity in new directions, adding new stories, side quests, skills, items, and monsters, all in a brand new tabletop experience. ”
While all the tiers a tad on the higher end, the standard edition’s $120 price tag fetches backers a ton of content. Forking over $45 more offers even more rewards including a boss upgrade pack, metal coin set, extra dice, and upgraded leather bags.
