Divinity II Goes Gold, January Launch Set

Usually we don’t hear about games going gold until maybe a week or two ahead of release, but that’s not the case with Divinity II: Ego Draconis. CDV has announced that the PC and Xbox 360 action-RPG has already gone gold, well in advance of the game’s confirmed January 5, 2010 North American ship date. Seems like CDV is purposefully holding back the release to avoid the stiff holiday competition, and I don’t blame them for a second. Although it’s not like the release schedule will be thinning out all that much early next year…

In other Divinity II news, CDV is currently running an “Epic PC Sweepstakes” with a custom gaming rig up for grabs (among other sweet prizes) and a GameStop pre-order campaign offering the Blood Echelon Armor and Weapon Set as bonus in-game items. Click the provided links for all the details.
