    Larian Studios promises “much-wanted tweaks and additions” to its PC smash hit



    Hello everybody! My name is Michael Douse, Director of Publishing at Larian Studios. In 2017, we released a PC game called Divinity: Original Sin 2, a sandbox RPG with the singular goal of bringing interactivity and exploration to new (sometimes ridiculous) heights.

    Since that release, we’ve been inundated by letters and comments asking us to bring Divinity: Original Sin 2 to the PlayStation 4. We heard those requests loud and clear, and we’re very excited that it’s finally happening.

    If you haven’t heard of Divinity: Original Sin 2, it’s a massive RPG in which you control a party of one to four, chosen from six origin characters with their own personal agendas and histories, or a custom avatar you can build from the ground up. You can play alone or with friends, in split screen couch co-op or online.

    The game world consists of a fantastic realm built to react to players’ creativity. Combat rewards experimentation, and elemental spells can be layered for max impact. You can cast rain on burning allies, teleport them to safety, and electrify the battlefield to stop enemies in their tracks. If an opponent is too close, you can lash them with temporary tentacles, summon a demon to fight for you, and fly away on your own pair of wings.

    While DOS 2 was highly reviewed (it’s Metacritic’s highest scoring PC game of 2017), we knew we still had room for improvement, and bringing the game to PS4 was the perfect opportunity to introduce a massive number of much-wanted tweaks and additions.

    We’ll be talking more about the specifics of those changes in coming posts but suffice it to say we’ve been hard at work bringing the entire experience to a new level.

    So stay tuned for more news on what’s coming to the PlayStation 4 version of Divinity: Original Sin 2, and come and chat to us on the socials — we’re always here to say hello!

    Thanks for reading!

    I really must finish the first, it's a great couch or online co-op title though quite easy to be waylaid, particularly if you put it down for any length of time... "What were we doing again?"

    I do rather enjoy the sense of humour and ability to tackle different tasks in any order though some quests that are hugely beyond your level are very easy to accidentally fall into then die horribly! Haha.

    But yeah the original is great and I'll be happy to invest in this one too!

    I kind of forgot I even had the original on Xbox. Bought a while back in a sale and quite enjoyed it at first but found the invertory and character management too frustrating eventually.

    You had to keep switching around your characters and items depending on who had better conversation/bartering skills or put unknown items into a particular inventory so they could be discovered by acertain character. Just became a bit of a pain unfortunately for me.

    I have heard and read VERY good things about this one though but doubt I'll buy it afer the frustrations of the previous title.
