TIME : 17th Dec 2013 TueAUTHOR : Eleanor

Larian Studios is pleased to announce that Divinity: Original Sin–the latest in the cult-favorite series–is now in alpha for all of its Kickstarter backers.

You may be asking yourself “But how do I know it’s ready for alpha release? If only someone put together a nice, long video where I can see for myself…” and Larian anticipated this through their mind-reading powers, so check this link to see it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mnZYMrWI4BI

Divinity: Original Sin

Anyone that backed Divinity: Original Sin need only register or sign in on the Larian Vault, enter the email they used to back the game, and they will find a Steam key waiting for them under the Kickstarter tab.

The alpha itself includes:

• 15-20% of the full game
• 10-15 hours of content
• Most of the starting city – Cyseal – is available, as well as some dungeons around the city.

Initially, the alpha will be single-player only but multiplayer will be added in the future. Sounds and music, animations, and all that other good stuff may be placeholders to be updated as the alpha rolls along. Alpha builds will be updated on a regular basis through Steam and players in the alpha can capture and stream footage with no NDA.

Divinity: Original Sin is currently scheduled for a February 2014 release.
