    Its a shame it will be not needed. From the looks of it its just a reskin of the newer Divinity Games by the same studio and while I did enjoy those games I was personalty stoked for a Pillars of Eternity style Revival rather than a Turn based game. At least based on the game play video that came out a few months back. (#SADWHENISAWTHEGAMEPLAYVIDEO).

    Are they charging AAA retail RRP for a fraction of a complete game or are they doing 'backer' discounts?

    So it's a "early access" for tomorrow and you pay full price? Basically paying full price for a closed beta game?

    Steam reviews look good, the question is if this is worth $89 for early access when I feel like its likely you can get it cheaper between now and shortly after release.

    I'll wait until there's a healthy discount and try to get a few mates to grab it at the same time for some multiplayer action. Hopefully wotc aren't gonna stop the discounts coming through down the track.

    Yeh I've been stung before when a friend recommended a game to me to play together. Bought it and only found out later that it's early access. Basically stopped half way couldn't finish the game and by the time it was complete, no one was interested in it anymore. What a waste of time. I'll wait until it finish and then play it when it's good and done.

    Full price for 1/3 of the game that everyone is going to beta test for the devs??? Larian are taking the piss out of bg fans.

    Pretty sure the full game is 3 acts and they only have act 1 ready to play. This is a pure money grab. I could understand if this was a kick-started project with more rewards down the track but fkn hell $90 for early access is pure EA/activision/ubisoft levels of corporate greediness.

    Well guess Lariat has gone over to the dark side...I wouldn't be surprised to see cosmetic mtx and pay 2 win mechanics next.

    None of what you've said makes sense, sounds like you are having a tantrum.

    Larian have one of the best reputations for starting and finishing a kickstarter/early access game, and going beyond expectations in terms of features/completion.

    They said themselves its priced at full price because they only want serious people playing it while in early access to provide feedback etc.

    Nobody is forcing you to buy the game at this point in time.

    I'll also point out that sales are very high for this game and reviews are great.

    Lol, all the moaners.
    YOU DON'T HAVE TO BUY IT.
    They will be adding more content over coming months, with full release next year.

    This is probably blasphemy, but I never played Baldur's gate 1 or 2. I was actually hoping this would be "Divinity 3".
    From what I saw in this video, I think I'll skip it. I enjoyed the combat in Divinity Original Sin 2. It sounds like no fun with the DnD rules. I've never played DnD before, and it seems like a lot of effort is required to come up to speed.
