We have something to announce, something we've been working on for almost two years. It will almost certainly come as a surprise, but we think you might be happy about what it is...

Watch the movie: The secret project of Larian Studios

Resume the role of The Divine One - one of the best protagonists in an RPG series - and wipe the floor with Damien's ungodly butt.

Come on Larian. It better be Divinity 3 or I'll storm those offices of yours and throw large amounts of money into your faces until you make it happen.

This is going to leave a trace, and not only in the history of Rivelon.

Male Divine One and Female Dragon Knight holding hands actually.


No?

No.

frown

I thought that it was Ygerna and Damien at first but I later thought against it. Would Larian really resurrect Ygerna for Divinity 3? It would destroy the ending of Flames of Vengeance really and its name sake. You wouldn't really have had revenge if she's still running about with Damien.

I suppose Larian could implement it but somehow I doubt it's her. There's definitely something sinister about the picture. For one we have that red crack which looks like he's a rip in the dimension and then we have the two figures which are shaded whereas everything else is colored and clear.

Maybe the Beyond Divinity hero is back and he's pissed off because Larian hasn't mentioned him since 2004. He's trying to destroy the game itself and attempts to break the forth wall to kill the player and then hunt Larian down for "forgetting" him.

Well, that confirms it then.

It has not been confirmed that Project E is Divinity 3, though so far what we know fits that assumption.

I also thought of Damian and Ygerna seeing the concept art, at least partly because there aren't really any other couples involved in the story so far. If it is them, rather than some new ominous-looking couple, the game could be set between Divine Divinity and Beyond Divinity. Damian was 15 when Ygerna was executed, though, and they had only known each other for a couple weeks, so that isn't a lot of time to fit in an RPG (which would need to avoid effecting the established story line). If set after DKS, there would have to be an explanation for Damian (presumably) being able to resurrect Ygerna when he was unable to do so before (maybe because the dragon knight's resurrection and re-killing broke the soul forge, or something). It could be set before DKS, so Ygerna was a ghost, but would have to end with her stuck in the Hall of Echoes and unable to communicate with Damian. Other than aspects of the ending already being establish, there would be lots of flexibility in the world and story before DKS to set another RPG.

We know you will be able to defeat the main bad guy at the end of Project E, so that limits the plot if the game is set before DKS (the bad guy has to be someone other than Damian, or you play as Damian, and the 'bad guy' is the Divine One).

It could be a screenshot from a cutscene or introduction to the game that explains the background of previous games.

Yes, they may have wanted to avoid too much detail about the game itself in the first 'teaser' image released.

I thought that as well; maybe the rip / crack in the ground running between them symbolises them being torn apart from each other i.e when Ygerna was slain at the end of Flames of Vengeance. Could be, as Virumor said, part of a cutscene explaining the backstory.

At least it's confirmed that its a Divnity game and if going by the Blog posts it will continue the story so hence I think it's Divinity 3.

This is not a screenshot, though, this is artwork. And I don't think this is paint-over consider artist's brushstrokes and composition set up.

Not seeing Damian there, though. It could be just generic characters form the cover/concept art/presentation placeholder.

Lar, may I know the artist name, please? And, if possible, link to the gallery?

I'm calling it now.

Beyond Divinity hero is the antagonist of Divinity 3.

Yeah, I'm betting it's Project E. And I'm also betting it'll be Divinity 3. I don't think Larian would be stupid enough to be working on Dragon Commander, Project E and Divinity 3 all at the same time. Insane enough, maybe, but not stupid enough.


Also,

Nice Schindler's List thing you got going there.

I rather hope it's the Dragon Knight & Rhode/Rhoda. wink


Edit : It could also be the Divine One & The Goddess (of which we haven't seen a single thing since the intro movie of Divinity 1).

I doubt it's any hero type character. That red glow suggests something evil.
