Game News - posted by Infinitron on Mon 28 September 2015, 16:38:14Tags: Divinity: Original Sin 2; Larian Studios; Swen Vincke
The Divinity: Original Sin 2 Kickstarter campaign reached its $1.65M stretch goal for improved modding support shortly after its last update, and it should be hitting $1.75M relationships stretch goal very soon. With just two days left until the end of the campaign, today's update announces the launch of a 24 hour Divinity: Original Sin 2 "Twitchathon" starting tomorrow at 15:00 CEST. This event will include, among other things, an epic RPG Codex vs RPGWatch arena deathmatch. Here are the details:
We’re coming up to the end of our Kickstarter, and Swen has just finished his last conference of the campaign. If you were lucky enough to be at TwitchCon, you might have bumped into him and some of our team showing off Divinity: Original Sin 2. We’ve had a lot of fun on Twitch with some great streamers over the last couple of weeks, and it was great to be right in the heart of that during TwitchCon. So much so, that we’re having our own Twitch marathon!
Two Days & Counting - Twitchathon
The last 24 hours is a busy time for any Kickstarter campaign, and we’re definitely not making it easy for ourselves! We’re going to be delivering hours of content, streamed live on Twitch to give you an unprecedented level of access to our offices, our devs, and our plans for the game. Our Twitch marathon will include a range of DevLines that will discuss Strategist Mode, the editor that the game will ship with, the Enhanced Edition and what it’s development brings to D:OS 2, and will even include a DevStorm: where we brainstorm your Uservoice ideas and see which will be best to implement in the game. (So if you’ve not had a chance to look at our Uservoice forum yet, get over there and get voting for whips, character customisation, and whatever else you want to see in the game!)
Of course, fun, informative talks are all well and good, but when it comes to entertainment value, nothing really tops blood sports. That’s why we’re hosting a series of Arena Battles for your viewing pleasure! Twitch Streamers will duke it out, RPG Watch and RPG Codex fight for the honour of who gets the most prominent place when their names are shown at the start of D:OS 2, and then we’ll finish it all off with a Larian civil war, as the Gent, St. Petersburg, Dublin, and Quebec teams face off in a vicious four-way contest to see who is the most Divine of them all.
We’ll also be hosting a “Best of Divinity” retrospective on the whole series, to remind you of the story so far.
To see what’s going down and when you can catch it all, head to our Twitch page for the full schedule!
In addtion to the above, the schedule mentions a "Special Guest" who's going to pop in. I wonder who that's going to be.
