Divinity: Original Sin 2 Definitive Edition arrives as a free update this August

  1. In an update on the game’s Kickstarter page, Larian revealed that the thousands of changes in the Definitive Edition of Divinity: Original Sin 2 takes into account all the feedback received from fans.

    The Definitive Edition is the version of the game that is debuting on consoles this August 31. Owners of the original PC game will be able to get it as a free upgrade.

    Those 130,000 new words make up a massive re-written section of Divinity 2’s late game, which was one of the few areas of the RPG to receive some criticism. Additionally, almost 150,000 words of text have been changed to improve story arcs. Origin stories have also been polished, and the update will "tie up loose ends" better than the original game does.

    The original's combat, which some found to have a brutal learning curve, has been rebalanced to address the difficulty spikes. There are also new battles and, for those who don’t care much for the turn-based fighting, there’s a new ‘Story mode.’ An easier difficulty setting than the current Explorer mode, this option allows players to focus on “the dialogue, reactivity and atmosphere in Original Sin 2.”

    Along with some DLC, a new tutorial, and plenty of other changes, the Definitive Edition could be the best reason to restart a new game of Original Sin 2, which remains one of our Best PC Games You Should Be Playing. Find out more at the Kickstarter page.

    Maybe they'll finally allow you to remap the command keys like every other game does.
