Larian Studios, the developer behind the hit Kickstarter-backed 2014 isometric RPG “Divinity: Original Sin,” has now confirmed when exactly fans will be able to get their hands on both the PC and console versions of the game’s upcoming Enhanced Edition.
“Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition” will be available on October 27 for PC and, for the first time ever, new-gen consoles PS4 and Xbox One. As Larian stated back when it first unveiled the Enhanced Edition in May, the Enhanced Edition will function as a completely separate standalone game, and not merely as an update to the original release:
“‘Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition’ is a completely separate game: not an update to ‘Divinity: Original Sin.’ Both games will remain available on PC and Mac, and it is important to note that they are totally different entities, so if you’ve already bought ‘Original Sin’ you’ll see separate listings for ‘Divinity: Original Sin’ and ‘Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition’ in your Steam Library.”
The Enhanced Edition will introduce new features such as local co-op for up to four players, full voice work for characters, tweaks to the game’s crafting system, a reworked story progression and brand new content such as items, spells and quests. Those who already own a PC copy of “Original Sin” will be given a copy of the Enhanced Edition for free.
Meanwhile, Larian is also busy working on a proper sequel to “Original Sin” aptly named “Divinity: Original Sin 2.” The sequel, which ended its Kickstarter campaign on September 30 with a grand total of $2,032,434 pledged, will included new gameplay features of its own including competitive multiplayer questing, a more dynamic world which directly reacts to the player’s choices and a total of five playable races. The stretch goals (all of which were unlocked) will add in bonus features such as a Game Master mode and dedicated mod support.
