There was much speculation regarding how Divinity will keep their legacy alive. But, it was finally confirmed that the series would ‘live on’ with the release of Divinity: Fallen Heroes. Fallen is not Divinity: Original Sin 3 and it will take place after the events of Divinity: Original Sin 2. The game will also have some of the characters, areas, enemies, character classes and some other elements that were a part of Divinity: Original Sin 2.
While there is no confirmed update for the game, it is rumored that it will be out sometime later this year. I’m pretty sure that there will be a proper announcement a few weeks or months before the game is released. The platforms for the game aren’t confirmed either so; we will have to wait for more news.
The biggest difference between Fallen Heroes and the rest of the series is that Fallen Heroes is actually a tactical strategy game that has been compared to XCOM. Fallen Heroes will allow you to select from 60 different missions and depart from a home base in order to complete the various tasks. The players will also be able to assign from over 200 character skills. There will also be an array of equipment to choose from just like in the other XCOM games.
Now let’s talk a bit about the combat system of Fallen Heroes. The combat system of the game is actually much closer to the Original Sin 2. So, it is not entirely like the XCOM games. Another important thing is that Fallen Heroes will keep ahold of the many RPG elements which made Original Sin 2 very popular. So, Fallen Heroes will have to make difficult decisions that will have consequences on the story.
Original Sin 2 provided a more pure RPG experience though. However, this doesn’t make Fallen Heroes any less exciting. This might attract more players to the game.
