Divinity 2 was advertised in the UK.
It was basically word of mouth
The distributor didn't do a great job around the time of release some couldn't find it instore, I'm not sure If thas changed.
CDV are doing a great at the moment.
I hope it pays off for Larian and CDV.
I agree. CDV has done a great job with advertising (internet ads, magazine ads, early release hype with Gamestop, exclusive pre-order offers, etc). The marketing and PR side has done great.
