Launching today on Xbox LIVE Marketplace is the official Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga demo, which offers fans a taste of the game's 100-plus hours of action RPG combat and exploration.

The demo released today takes players through the game's introduction, offering a sizeable portion of Rivellon's Broken Valley to explore. While the demo's handful of hours pale in comparison to the 100+ hours of action RPG excitement in the full game, there are plenty of quests to discover and complete, NPCs to interact with, merchants with whom to barter, and of course, monsters to slay. The demo serves as a balanced overture for curious fans and series newcomers, concluding just as it lets gamers transform into a dragon for the first time and rise into the skies of Rivellon.
