Divinity: Original Sin 2 Takes Down PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS as #1 Top Seller on Steam

Francesco De Meo

PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS has been doing incredibly well, going as far as reaching one million of concurrent players on Steam last week. The game also managed to be the best selling one on Steam for quite some time, but it seems like its reign has come to an end.

Shortly before its official release, Larian Studio's highly anticipated RPG, Divinity: Original Sin 2, managed to take the first place on the Steam Top Sellers charts from PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS. Now, a few hours after release, the game also lost the second place to NBA 2K18.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 has launched yesterday on Steam following an Early Access release which allowed players to play through the game's first act. The new entry in the series comes with several enhancements over its predecessor, as well as plenty of new features that make it a strong contender for the title of best RPG of the year.

The Divine is dead. The Void approaches. And the powers latent within you are soon to awaken. The battle for Divinity has begun. Choose wisely and trust sparingly; darkness lurks within every heart.

Who will you be?

A flesh-eating elf; an imperial lizard; an undead risen from the grave? Choose your race and origin story - or create your own! Discover how the world reacts differently to who - and what - you are.

It’s time for a new Divinity!

Gather your party and develop relationships with your companions. Blast your opponents in deep tactical turn-based combat. Use the environment as a weapon, use height to your advantage, and manipulate the elements.

Choose your race and origin. or create your own as a Human, Lizard, Elf, Dwarf, or Undead. The world reacts to who you are, and what you’ve done. Every choice will have a consequence. 

Unlimited freedom to explore and experiment. Go anywhere, talk to anyone, and interact with everything! Every NPC can be killed, and every animal spoken to! Even ghosts hold a few secrets or two…
