Larian Studios is returning to Kickstarter Aug. 26 to fund the development of Divinity: Original Sin 2, "something even bigger, better, and more engaging than Divinity: Original Sin," according to today's announcement.

"On August 26th we'll be returning to Kickstarter with Divinity: Original Sin 2, but you don't have to wait to have your say," the announcement on the original game's Kickstarter blog reads. "We'll want a lot of feedback as we progress, and right now we want to know what YOU want from the Kickstarter campaign. Head over to our Divinity: Original Sin 2 page to suggest what rewards you'd like to see, and vote on the rewards that others have suggested! "

Larian will bring a playable demo to PAX Prime this month in Seattle. Prospective players will be able to vote for backer rewards through the game's official website.

The developer launched a Kickstarter campaign for Divinity: Original Sin in March 2013. The crowdfunded campaign collected 236 percent of its $400,000 goal, covering several stretch goals. After some delays, the old-school, isometric role-playing game arrived June 20, 2014 on Windows PC. It's also available for Mac and in development for PS4 and Xbox One.
