Fighting dragons isn't easy work. It's pretty high-risk stuff and doesn't come with a particularly long life expectancy. Actually BEING a dragon is no day in the park either, it turns out. Especially when everyone's actually missing the real threat and getting far too pre-occupied with the fire-breathers.

So, yes, Divinity 2 (as the second part of the title, 'Ego Draconis' suggests) is about dragons, but it's got a lot more going on besides. It follows hot on the heels of the first Divinity game, with the dragon knights having dispatched the divine hero. You sign up to the Order of Dragon Slayers, but your life is turned on its head when a dying Dragon Knight gives her powers to you and you gain the ability to turn into one of the giant leathery lizards with the hot breath. You realise that all is not as it seems and that the evil Damian is once again plotting...

As you're now part human, part dragon, the gameplay of Divinity 2 is split between the skies and the ground. You'll be able to shift between the two, approaching different situations as you see fit. With plenty of depth to be found in the game, it's worth toying with your options, as there are myriad ways to get through each scenario.

Divinity 2 also has no class system. While you can still upgrade your skills in areas such as necromancy, alchemy, combat skills and enchantments, you're not forced to stick to one particular field, meaning you can choose to become a master in one skill set or an all-rounder.

Whatever you choose to do, there's plenty to sink your teeth into with Divinity 2.
