Divinity II Story Trailer Act I

dtp entertainment and developer Larian Studios have a three-part series of background story trailers lined up to build anticipation for upcoming PC and Xbox 360 RPG Divinity II: Ego Draconis — it’ll be out in Germany, Austria and Switzerland on July 24th; September elsewhere — and the first act in said series is right here for your viewing pleasure, with an accompanying story synopsis posted after the break.

Divinity II: Ego Draconis takes the player back to Rivellon, more than half a century after the Divine came to power. Much has happened there since, but the death of the Divine – the hero of the previous game – is undoubtedly the greatest tragedy. He was slain by a Dragon Knight during a battle with Damian, Rivellon’s arch nemesis. The Divine’s paladins swore revenge and so the order of the Dragon Slayers came to be.

Rivellon, the beautiful but war-torn world first explored in Divinity II’s award-winning predecessor, features many areas and labyrinths for the player to explore. This world is the home of plenty of non-player characters, offering a multitude of quests and storylines – or just the latest gossip. Because of the branched quest system, the player’s decisions can have far-reaching consequences. The player can shapehift between human and dragon forms to bring a whole new dimension to your ability to explore the world, as well as many more combat options. Rain firey death from above as an airborne dragon, or get up close and personal with sword, bow or magic as a human.

The player is set on an unexpected quest that will unveil hidden truths and revive forgotten evils which will change the face of Rivellon forever.
