The devs put out a very informative video today.
After it has been teased for a while that the next playable race in Divinity: Original Sin 2 is going to be the undead we now have a confirmation that it is actually so. Take look at the dev diary:
The race plays completely different from the rest with a twist on healing mechanics and the necessity to disguise themselves while talking to NPC’s.
There’s a new origin character, Fane, who is a scholar entombed centuries ago for pursuing forbidden knowledge. His story and character were co-written by Chris Avellone of Fallout fame.
Divinity: Original Sin 2 will be out on September 14.
