Divinity: Original Sin Update Introduces Two New Companions
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Larian Studios has announced the release of a major update for its co-op fantasy RPG, Divinity: Original Sin. In addition to bug fixes and feature additions the new update introduces to new companions to the game: Bairdotr and Wolgraff. Divinity: Original Sin features an isometric view point, party-based gameplay, turn-based combat, choice and consequence, character and party development, and a large interactive world filled with characters and items.

As promised, we're ready to launch two more companions into Rivellon, both of which you can meet in Cyseal. Bairdotr, a curious and loyal ranger, has gotten herself into some trouble at the Legion barracks, while the silent rogue Wolgraff has found himself a nice hustle stealing coins from the wishing well in the Cyseal hinterlands (accessible through the graveyard tunnel).

Armed with her bow on her back and her claws at the ready, Bairdotr refuses to fail: She must navigate your world-- a world of wonder and mysteries both fantastic and terrible-- if she's to save Homeforest. The druid of the forest has been kidnapped, and Bairdotr must follow a scant trail of clues if she's to bring him back-- clues that take her to the very heart of Rivellon's Source conspiracy.

Dark Sourcery deprived Wolgraff of his voice when he was but a kid, and with it his dream of becoming a Source Hunter. Refused by the Order, he grew up to become a rogue, stealing from the rich and giving to... just himself actually. His is a world of silence, but if need be he lets his dagger do the talking for him.

Become A Sorcerer Lord In Worlds Of Magic
6:00 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Wasteland Interactive's Worlds of Magic is available now for purchase at Mac Game Store. The fantasy strategy game lets players take command of one of 8 playable races as a sorcerer lord and set forth to expand an empire by gathering resources, building armies, capturing cities, and making use of magical spells to blast enemy forces.

EXPLORE, EXPAND, EXPLOIT, and EXTERMINATE!
  • Explore uniquely generated universes.
  • Expand your empire by building armies, recruiting mercenaries, and founding or capturing cities.
  • Exploit resources and factions alike to increase your own power.
  • Exterminate your enemies using the tools of war, magical spells or diplomacy.
THE PLOT

The world of Elannra was a land of beauty and enchantment, where the wise and powerful used magic to lift themselves to the heavens, seeking to become gods. It was their arrogance that destroyed the world; ripped its fabric apart at the very seams. The War of Ascension consumed it. And so they fled. Gateways were opened to new worlds, to new lands ripe for conquest. The Sorcerer lords of Elannra plunged through these portals taking their servants with them, intending to wage their immortal wars across the planes themselves.

But the magic of these worlds was different, it was not the open flowing source of Elannra. The Sorcerer lords had to begin again and learn the ways of this new magic. With their learning came power and with power conquest. Only victory will end this war. Only one Sorcerer can reign supreme!
Worlds of Magic will capture the feel of one of the greatest strategy games ever created: Master of Magic. It combines classic elements like randomly generated world maps and powerful heroes with new game mechanics, such as the D20 OGL rule set, and expanded features, like seven planes of existence.
