    So the Early Access for it went live this week. Been watching some gameplay. Has me clamoring at the bit for it myself, but I'd play it co-op with the missus and don't fancy dropping 60 for two copies right now!

    Any EGers playing it?

    Edit: Obligatory link and Youtube vid before someone strops.

    Yes please. D:oS was sublime, albeit a bit too obtuse at times.

    Why do I always get mixed up between this, the Risen and the Sacred series

    Can't wait for the full release. Bought the early access as soon as it became available but only played about half an hour so I didn't spoil it for myself :lol:

    Kind of want to jump in, but might as well wait now I guess.

    @ChiefGB Just discovered this. :) Think I'll just wait till release and get it for 14 cheaper!

    I'll be honest, I was going to cancel my preorder, but then I saw that you get a squirrel companion DLC...

    I think it's more a pet than an actual campaign character. But yeah pretty cool. I'm waiting for my pc def Ed upgrade before starting.

    Some pets do provide a benefit. There is a cat one can get on the first island that provides some benefits.

    Yeah pet pal is maybe the single best perk. Essential. Gah, I want to play this again now.

    So, anyone else getting this now it's finally been released on console today? I pre-ordered it on the PSN store earlier in the month so got early access to Act 1 and I've been loving it over the last couple of weeks, it's really good if you're into this type of RPG. I'm probably the guy Garl mentioned seeing playing this earlier this month on PS4 :D

    Currently got my team to level 7 and have covered most of the Fort Joy area apart from one or two places and currently in Braccus Rex's Tower after the maze. I love that you can just stumble across a whole new cave or underground area purely by chance, it really encourages exploration and the transition times into new areas are virtually instantaneous, a far cry from the long winded load screens of Pillars. Some of the dialogue has had me laughing out loud too, especially one conversation with Fane regarding poisoning people to take their faces.

    I'm using a Hydromania focused team which I got from the detailed and brilliant Fextralife wiki. My main character as a Magic Archer Elf whose doing a lot of damage, Fane is a Crystaline Cleric, Ifan as a Frost Paladin and Lohse as a Tidalist. Here's a link below to the party builds page on Fextralife, it's really useful if you're starting out with some great party suggestions near the bottom of the page and detailed guides for how to develop each specific class with stats, weapons, abilities, etc: https://fextralife.com/divinity-original-sin-2-party-combinations-guide-magic-physical-and-mixed/

    Looking forward to being able to finally move towards Act 2 now, which is supposedly the bulk of the game and a lot longer than Act 1, which has already taken 40 hours of playtime for me!

    @Rodderz Aye, Act 2 is where most of the game is. All told, I'd guess it's almost as long as the other acts put together, provided you take the time to do all sidequests (which isn't essential).

    That said, I gather for the console release and PC enhanced edition (the latter dropped as a free update last night), they've substantially revised and expanded Act 3, which was an obvious weak link in the first release of the game.

    Act 2 is almost comically long. Weirdly I actually kind of wish they'd split it into two smaller acts.

    Nope, nothing popped last night with regards to a day 1 update but that's for the digital version, so not sure about the disc .

    The game has been very stable for me over the last couple of weeks playing Act 1 on a standard PS4, with only one or two graphical glitches here and there that I occasionally noticed on things like clothing. I also found that pressing R1 stick in the inventory didn't register the change to multiple selection of items sometimes, but that's about it for bugs I've noticed so far.

    Thanks Rodderz

    @Rodderz pretty sure that was you I saw online. :) Been waiting for day 1 so I could pick it up too.

    My first problem; the character models are limited, and are pretty ugly. Considering I'll have to look at that face for potentially hundreds of hours, I'm stuck on the character creation screen.
