Divinity: Original Sin 2 gets a new area!
Divinity Original Sin 2 will be getting a new area, due to the great success of its Kickstarter. The campaign has managed to pull in $1.5 million so far! To mark such a high goal, a new area called the Hall of Echoes will be created and added to the game.
A recent Kickstarter update says this about the new area:
"A mysterious realm between reality and the Void, the Hall of Echoes is called a heaven by some, a hell by others. Upon their deaths, all souls all drawn toward the Hall; those who resist remain on Rivellon as undead. Souls successfully pulled into the Hall naturally drift toward the Forge, where they will be reborn, or the Void, where they will be consumed. Those who remain in the Hall face a pleasant reality, perhaps indescribable to mortal sensibilities. They must decide, or drift, of their own accord toward the Forge or the Void."
This new and mysterious realm is a world of mystery. This ominous place has a connection to both the Void and the realm of the Gods.
According to Larian Studios:
"...its ability to shift, chameleon-like, to suit the needs and desires of its visitors. When your party is eventually invited to the Hall, you’ll find that it may morph to suit your deepest desires, be they for a skill trader, a home for your companions, or perhaps a lost soul from your past."
Who knows what kind of adventures such a realm will bring to the main game.
Adding the Hall of Echoes was the last original goal that Larian had for its Kickstarter. However, with the great success of raising over $1.5 million, Larian added a variety of more goals for their Kickstarter - all the way up to $2 million.
Their next goal is to hit $1.65 million and create a team devoted to mod support.
Divinity: Original Sin 2's Kickstarter has achieved a lot with its 33,000 backers, and there are still 11 days remaining for it. However, Larian has offered another option for those who are unwilling to make use of Kickstarter. If you want to help Larian's quest for funding toward Divinity Original Sin 2, you can also help through the use of PayPal.
