Divinity: Original Sin is well into its beta period and Larian Studios is ready to issue a formal release date. The oft-delayed crowdfunded RPG will now arrive on June 20 and the studio is celebrating this announcement with a new trailer and bulky update for the game's Early Access build.

The latest beta build will include an overhauled loot generation matrix (resulting in better drops for all), skill stats that now level up alongside characters, new Rogue abilities that include a 'Way of the Rogue' special ability, difficulty settings, multiple user profiles, 135 new music tracks, and several other changes. The new update will also feature a number of bug and optimization fixes and balance tweaks.

The full list of changes can be found on Divinity's Steam page. Divinity: Original Sin's beta is currently available on Steam Early Access.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      This is one of the top games I'm looking forward to this year. The last RPG I really loved and drew me in was Divinity 2: The Dragon Knight Saga, which I played 4 years ago. Dragon Commander (their attempt at an RTS) might have disappointed some (I haven't tried it), but this game is in their realm of experience, and doubt they'll disappoint. I especially love their take on goblins, making them tribal, have one eye and a backswept horn, etc...very unique compared to pretty much all other fantasy universes and how they depict goblins making them green, and an ugly face with massive ears.
