You can jump into Larian's latest RPG -- Divinity: Original Sin -- over on Steam right now thanks to Early Access. The game is currently in alpha, meaning that bugs and placeholders and limited options abound, but you can actually get a really good feel for things, and the co-operative roleplaying element of Original Sin is on show for all to see.
There are two main characters in this game -- making it a perfect title to play with a friend (you can team up or split up whenever you want) -- and you have the opportunity to assign them to one of three classes at the start, but little beyond that at this stage of development. However, from then on, everything's pretty much open. You get plonked down in Rivellon, assigned to investigate a recent murder, and that's about it. You can go off and pretty much do whatever you like.
We have a half-hour playthrough complete with some initial impressions and commentary after the jump, in which our heroic duo set some Orcs on fire, beat up an enormous crab, and then pick a fight with a bunch of random NPCs... just because they can.
