It is super freaking obvious to the point of if you couldn't tell when it happened, something is wrong with you.

Does the screen say "Act 2" because I'm over 100 hours into the game and yet to see that.
My party is currently broken up and I'm back to just my main character.

Well its not that obvious as the game never tells you that you've completed an act or began a new one.

Literal world changing event isn't obvious enough for you?

Oh, I know what you mean. Honestly, I wouldn't have known this game was broken down into "Acts" if I didn't visit this board.

Same here.
It also seems like there isn't an agreed upon time in the game when acts do end and begin.
Everyone has their own understanding of when they end and begin.

you can also tell by looking at the screen title , each act has a different screen title image

Interesting. I wasn't quite sure what triggered that change.
