Divinity Original Sin

Larian Studios’ Divinity: Original Sin will be releasing on the Xbox One and PS4 this year and is receiving an enhanced edition in the process. According to the developer, this enhanced edition will add new quests and locations along with new endings, some tweaks to the story and full voice acting with actors Alix Wilton Regan and Alec Newman attached. Of course, the Xbox One and PS4 versions of the game will run at 1080p resolution along with sporting a gamepad-tailored control schemes and split-screen/online co-op.

Creative director Swen Vincke spoke to GameSpot about the same, stating that, “We went a little too overboard with it; we called it an Enhanced Edition, but I really think that we made it much more than enhanced.

“We were a little bit unhappy with some of the compromises we made on the narrative side of things, so we’re just going to take the opportunity to change everything. The ending wasn’t that rewarding, so we added a lot to it. On the endings side, we really added a lot.”

It should be noted that matchmaking for online play won’t be available at launch but Vincke isn’t ruling out the possibility. “We haven’t cracked that particular piece of the code yet.”

The good news is that current owners on PC and Mac OS X will receive the enhanced edition as a free upgrade. You’ll need a 64-bit processor and DirectX 11 support to run it though, with system requirements to be detailed later.

Divinity: Original Sin represented a “huge turning point” for the studio overall, with Vincke stating that, “It allowed us to do a lot of things we couldn’t have done before. And we’re doing those now. We’re experimenting a lot. We have two RPGs in production, which we’re not just ready to announce yet, but hopefully we’ll talk about at least one later this year.”

The enhanced edition of Divinity: Original Sin is expected out later this year.
