You can always leave the business of a solid western RPG game concoction to Larian Studios, which through the two Divinity Original Sin series seems to deserve the title.

As yesterday's screenshot indicated, it comes as a turn-based RPG game with various classes. There are several different things, such as the ability to jump to move to a higher terrain to the story approach that is now present in a cinematic format. Larian Studios also shares some other details regarding this one game:
