If you’re a fan of classic RPG games then you’ll want to tune in for this one. Larian Studios has just announced that they’ll be bringing the critically acclaimed, Divinity: Original Sin, to the PS4 and Xbox One some time in the near future.
They’re calling this updated version the Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition. However, according to Larian Studios this isn’t just your average port, the Enhanced Edition of the game is essentially a whole new title in their eyes. Larian’s explanation for why that is so is just below:
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. This means that saved games can’t be transferred from Divinity: Original Sin to the Enhanced Edition. This is largely because of the technical changes we’ve made to how the game looks and feels, but the story has also been rewritten so heavily that most saved games would no longer be compatible with the plot. (After all, it wouldn’t make sense to load a game in which you’re halfway through a quest line that’s been replaced with something different.)
As well as local co-op, split screen and controller support, the Enhanced Edition also features:
- All characters are now fully voiced by AAA-voice actors
- New quests, new characters, and new content
- Entirely new gameplay modes and character builds
- A heavily rewritten story with a brand new ending
- Massively reworked visuals and sound effects
- And much more to be announced in the coming months!
No release date has been set yet for Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition, with Larian only saying it’ll be ready when it’s ready. They will be showing the game off at E3, however, so you won’t have to wait too much longer to see the game in action.
If you missed the news a few months back, Wasteland 2, another big classic RPG is also coming to consoles in the near future. Stay tuned to OnlySP on Facebook and Twitter for further news regarding Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition.
