Fact: People that earn all of the achievements in a game typically have to invest serious time in the process. Fact: Divinity II - Ego Draconis
has an estimated length of 40-60 hours.
In light of these two facts, you can anticipate that unlocking all 41 of the announced achievements for the game will take a while. cdv Entertainment has decided to hold another contest that will reward the die hard fan that unlocks all of the achievements first.
What do you score if you win? How about a dragon head mounted on a plaque? Here's the official description of that prize:
"The Dragon Knight Epic Trophy, given out only to the first place winner, is a high quality 3D rendition of a dragon’s head mounted on to a plaque. The figurine will be produced using the same 3D models in Divinity II – Ego Draconis and rendered and machine cut for accuracy."
I couldn't find a good face shot of a dragon (from the game) but below is a concept art and screen shot from their web site. If you aren't already drooling, the winner will also get a ton of other 'phat loot.' All that's left is for you to do two things. First, read the press release for all of the details. Second, request January 5th and 6th off of work or school so you can get Divinity II - Ego Draconis
, play non-stop and win the prizes!
