Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition coming to Xbox One, PS4

One of 2014’s sleeper hits, the cRPG Divinity: Original Sin is not only receiving an Enhanced Edition with numerous gameplay tweaks but will be making its way to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 as well. Both consoles are in need to couch co-op titles and Divinity looks to fill that gap.

One of the biggest features in this new console parts is that of a dynamic split-screen. Players will journey in one screen, but at any point can split from the other and the screen will divide into two. Once split, player A will be able to journey through a dungeon while player B explores a town, or player A can check their inventory while player B enters combat. It’s an independent and interesting system that will surely utilize the power behind both consoles.

Another aspect is the ‘rock-paper-scissors’ system. If both players have opposing view on a moral decision, a rock-paper-scissors game will play out to determine the winner. The Divinity: Original Sin will then change character’s relationships and interactions depending on the outcome.

The game is slated for release on 27 October on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. While the Xbox Store is advertising the game for R699, the South African PlayStation store has yet to list it. Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition will also be available as a free upgrade to PC users who previously purchased the game through Steam, GOG, or Humble Bundle.
