Here’s why you should play each.
Divinity: Original Sin II
How do you create a sequel to one of the best games of 2014? Very carefully. Divinity: Original Sin II is a turn-based strategy RPG set a thousand years after the original. This time, you play as one character instead of two, and you can choose your race and origin story (a la Dragon Age: Origins).
Some highlights of the sequel include:
- A Memory character attribute, which limits the number of skills you can activate at any given time.
- A tags system that differentiates how your character behaves (e.g. you can be an Outlaw, Jester, Noble, and so on).
- More options for interacting with surfaces. You can combine elements like fire, ice, oil, and electricity for more devastating effects on your foes.
Divinity: Original Sin II is out for the PC.
Dishonored: Death of the Outsider
Nearly a year after the release of steampunk stealth action game Dishonored 2, developer Arkane Studios are following it up with Death of the Outsider, a standalone expansion which plans to close out the main story told across the first two games.
Death of the Outsider continues the story with ex-assassin Billie Lurk, who’s on a quest to kill the Outsider, a supernatural being who bestows magical powers on a select few.
