Larian Studios is ready to bring their long-awaited Kickstarter-backed RPG Divinity: Original Sin out of Steam Early Access next week. That means players will also get to witness the Divinity Engine in action. In hopes that developers will find a widespread use for the engine, the studio is offering a playground for users to practice modding. That playground is Cow Simulator 2014.

Cow Simulator 2014 is an example mod built with the Divinity Engine Toolkit assets. Users can modify the farmland environment to create entire gaming experiences from the ground-up, including single and multiplayer adventures, dialogue branches, and AI behaviors.

Those that have already purchsed Divinity: Original Sin on Steam Early Access can access their Cow Simulator 2014 by selecting 'Library' and 'Tools' to open the Divinity Engine Toolkit. Cow Simulator 2014 is available within that program, so that creators can begin messing with the world and exporting their work to Steam Workshop.

For examples of what can be done with Cow Simulator 2014, check out the video below.

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?
