Clans

is a single-player and cooperative multiplayer fantasy role-playing video game by Larian Studios.

The game will ship with the editor that it was created with, allowing players to create their own single-player and multiplayer adventures, and publish them online. The game was funded through Kickstarter and is a prequel to Divine Divinity.

Gameplay

Original Sin will be the next RPG in the Divinity universe. Divinity: Original Sin concerns two heroes: a condemned warrior released from his chains and a mystic heroine restored to life. The game touts turn-based combat, cooperative multiplayer, a highly interactive world and will ship with a full-fledged modding tool.

Development

Original Sin was expected to be released in October or November 2013, but was delayed to 28 February, 2014. The release date was subsequently delayed again until 20 June, 2014, and finally to 30 June, 2014. Current localisations are English, French, German, Polish and Russian; additional languages may be added.

Originally Larian intended to release PC and Mac versions of the game simultaneously, and stated that once the Mac version was completed a Linux port would not be difficult. However, they eventually decided to delay the Mac and Linux versions to focus on gameplay; when those versions are released they will be free to anyone with the Windows version of the game.

It later turned out that the Mac version would be available on the date of release. Larian wanted to do a turn based game before, but the publisher they were working with always withheld them from doing so.

Crowdfunding

A crowdfunding campaign started on Kickstarter on 27 March, 2013. By using Kickstarter, Larian aimed to secure additional funds to expand the content of the game and the reactivity of the game world. The Kickstarter was successfully funded on 26 April, raising over $1,000,000 (with the PayPal pledges included).
