If you're a hardcore RPG fan, you're no doubt familiar with Divinity: Original Sin and its incredibly deep systems and gameplay. Now we're on the eve of the game's sequel, Divinity: Original Sin II, and a new launch trailer shows that it will be every bit as deep as the original.

The trailer gives a good overview of how Divinity: Original Sin II seeks to recreate the depth and customization of pen-and-paper RPGs in a virtual world. From character creation, to your story choices, crafting, and more, the game lets you take control of nearly every aspect of your character. That's a level of freedom that can be daunting at times, but it also makes for engaging gameplay.

Divinity: Original Sin II is set to launch in full for PC on September 14. If you're ready to dive in, you can grab the game for $44.99 on Steam now. There's no word just yet on whether we can expect a console version to hit Xbox One, as we saw with the original.
