2014s most talked-about RPG comes to consoles with a host of exciting new content

Released to overwhelming critical acclaim, reaching close to a million copies sold on PC and winning over 150 game of the year awards and nominations, Larian Studios’ RPG Divinity Original Sin comes to consoles with a host of new and enhanced content in Divinity: Original Sin – Enhanced Edition.

The “Best RPG in years” (according to PC Gamer) receives a full makeover, including – but not limited to – a new intuitive user-interface tailored for controllers and couch friendly dynamic split-screen, with full voiced and remastered AAA dialogues featuring Alix Wilton Regan and Alec Newman, as well as hours of new content; quests, combat-styles, locations, changes to the crafting system and a reworked storyline breathing new life into the already expansive world of Rivellon.

More details will be revealed over the coming months, but for an early look be sure to visit the Divinity: Original Sin – Enhanced Edition booth at E3.

Of their partnership, Larian CEO Swen Vincke said

 

“There was a lot of publisher interest for [the console version] but when Focus approached us, the decision was rapidly made. We know each other well, having worked together since 2002, and that means there’s a lot of mutual trust & respect.

Focus’ recent growth as well as the energy and enthusiasm showcased by their team makes me confident they’ll do a great job in publishing the Xbox One & PS4 versions of Divinity: Original Sin – Enhanced Edition.”

 

His remarks were followed closely by Focus Home Interactive’s Managing Partner Cedric Lagarrigue, stating

 

“We’re very proud to accompany Larian on such a big project. We’re pleased to see that both Focus and Larian have remarkably grown since our first partnership more than 10 years ago, and that now together we’ll deliver one of the most exciting RPGs that will release on consoles at the end of 2015.”

Easing a new generation into the world of cRPGs, Original Sin – Enhanced Edition features isometric, party-based gameplay, turn based combat in a story that will have you embroiled in a fantasy world of free exploration thanks to a new split-screen friendly UI.

  • Become part of a reactive, living and open world. Explore diverse environments, find myriad creatures and tons of desirable items.
  • Experience gripping, party and turn-based combat. Manipulate the environment and use skill & spell combos.
  • Play in co-op multiplayer online or in local split-screen and engage in co-op dialogues. Shape your relationships with your partner that will influence the game.
  • Unravel a deep and epic story, set in the early days of Rivellon. Taking place well before Divine Divinity and Divinity 2: The Dragon Knight Saga, Divinity: Original Sin presents you with a familiar world in another era.
  • Classless system lets you shape your character any way you want. Endless item interaction and combinations take things to another level of freedom.

    Tempting… but looks like an addictive game, must stay away from it! (…added to wishlist…)

    Thank you for the update about this title but I’m going to have to avoid this all together because their video showed no gameplay, very little art, and only pointless reviews from gaming journalists. In my opinion, I can’t get excited for anything sponsored by so many journalist commentaries, goes to show they’re trying to push this to the sheep gamers and not the true gamer fanbase (e.g. Souls/BB)

    I don’t know if my words are worth any of your trust, but if you like turn-based RPGs, then this is a must. The combat system is one of the best I’ve ever played, and I’ve played a lot: all of the D&D games, Phantasy Star series, Final Fantasy, and etc. The way you can use the environment to create devastating combos is extremely entertaining. All of the classes bring their own breed of awesome. I’ve tried them all and all are fun to play. Of course, mage is my favorite, but rangers and rogues are pretty well done in this game. Crafting is useful, even if not creating an item from scratch, you can improve any weapon/item you find. There may be some limits but I don’t remember off the top of my head. The only real complaint may be with the story as it can be silly at times, but I don’t really care about lore or stories in RPGs. I know, blaspheme. That’s the only thing I see people griping about.

    I highly recommend this game, it has some replay value for challenges: solo lone wolf or dual lone wolf, which is a type of prestige that gives bonus points while leveling, but locks out companions from joining your party.

    It was a teaser trailer. The PC version was a kickstarter project and is really nicely done given its origins. It’s a solid oldschool turn based RPG. It has a grid system, complex questing and puzzling, elements that cancel each other out (apply fire to poison pool and it transforms into a poison cloud then goes away etc)

    I can understand why a small developer who crowdfunded their project are so happy to get so many excellent reviews by big outlets :)

    I’ve been putting off getting this on Steam so I probably will hold out now for this on PS4. Can’t wait to play it though, has always looked really good.

    I played the PC version and never got around to finishing it. I found the game to be really mediocre.

    My main issue with the game was that it was just way too text heavy. It got to the point where I just got impatient and mashed through all dialogue, because even random unimportant NPCs had wall, after wall, after wall of text. Most of the quests weren’t that interesting either. I facerolled with a team of 2 mages on the standard difficulty by using elemental combos. This game has nothing on Baldur’s Gate 2.

    Also, the game ran like garbage, and I got a very good PC. Consistent 60fps was a problem. Any time explosions went off, massive FPS dips, and this game has last gen graphics. That’s the hallmark of an unoptimized game. I dunno if its been improved or not.

    Pillars of Eternity is considerably better than this game is.

    I put over a hundred hours into this game on my first play through alone and is the best turn based combat RPG out there at the moment. The combat is very similar to Fallout 1and 2 with a fantasy setting. The character creation and way you level up have very deep customization that encourage multiple play throughs. I haven’t played this game in months, but I will most likely pick it up on console since you can play local OR online co op and I have yet to do this.

    The fact that this has couch co-op means this is a winner for me and my wife. We’ve pretty much exhausted ourselves with Diablo 3, so this will be a welcome change
