    Полностью переведенная на русский язык и переозвученная версия получившей всемирное признание классической ролевой игры Divine Divinity.

    Земли Ривеллона — почти образцовое волшебное королевство... Почти, потому что в последнее время тут творится какая-то чертовщина — то гномы испохабят кладбище эльфов за то, что те украли у них топор дедушки Гримбла, то орки, проводя субботник, разгромят парочку людских замков и уничтожат всех его обитателей, то братство Черного Кольца революционные настроения в массах сеет. Не к добру всё это, определённо, не к добру.

    К счастью, в землях Ривеллона ещё есть бесстрашные герои и могущественные маги, способные противостоять злу.

    • Классическая ролевая игра с гибкой системой развития персонажа и множеством предметов экипировки.
    • Девяносто шесть навыков, разделенных на четыре группы, тридцать два заклинания четырех школ магии.
    • Более трехсот персонажей, с которыми может взаимодействовать герой.
    • Более ста типов всевозможных монстров — от зомби до драконов.
    • Нетривиальный сюжет, большое количество разнообразных и интересных квестов, оригинальный юмор.

    According to prophecy, you are the Chosen One, and only you will be able to save the legendary land of Rivellon from submission under the Lord of Chaos. But before you take on the fight against Evil, you must be discovered and blessed as the Divine Savior.
