L'un des avantages majeurs de proposer un jeu en accès anticipé sur Steam n'est pas seulement de se faire de l'argent pour continuer le développement en toute sérénité (ou presque), mais d'avoir la possibilité de récolter d'innombrables retour des joueurs et de pouvoir les appliquer. C'est exactement ce que semblent penser les développeurs de chez Larian Studios.
Ces derniers viennent en effet de nous dévoiler un tout nouveau patch ainsi qu'une longue vidéo nous permettant de découvrir le contenu de cette mise à jour pour Divinity : Original Sin 2. Celle-ci apporte un nouveau système d'animations rendant l'action plus viscérale et perceptible, mais tous les personnages et créatures du jeu n'en profitent pas encore. Un nouveau système de statistiques est également disponible. Désormais, par exemple, chacun des points attribués dans la catégorie mémoire donnera accès à un nouveau slot. De nombreuses autres nouveautés sont également disponibles, et je vous invite à lire le changelog ci-dessous.
Sachez finalement que ce patch ne vous permettra pas de continuer votre partie en cours. Vos sauvegardes seront en effet incompatibles. Si vous voulez cependant persévérer avec vos anciennes sauvegardes, vous devrez vous rendre dans l'onglet bêta se trouvant dans les propriétés de Divinity : Original Sin 2 sur Steam et choisir la version ea_version_1 ou ea_version_2.

Aucun regret d'avoir KS pour ma part, j'ai hâte de voir le jeu terminé !
Impressionnant, c'est un vrai accès anticipé au moins, ca sert à quelque chose en dehors de l'aspect financier.Ce jeu comme le précédent d'ailleurs ne m'intéresse pas, mais en effet, ça fait plaisir de voir ça. Tout les dév ne sont donc pas passés en mode crevards, tout espoir n'est pas perdu.
Parce que bon, même si j'ai aimé le 1, je me souviens qu'il avait fallut attendre plusieurs mois et pas mal de patchs pour avoir une version FR vraiment complète à 100%.
Avec la quantité de thune amassée depuis, maintenant ils n'ont plus vraiment d'excuse pour se foirer.
