Publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment has announced that Divinity: Original Sin 2, originally released on PC last year, will be releasing for PlayStation and Xbox One this August. The game had a very successful PC launch and now developer Larian Studios is working to bring the BAFTA nominated RPG to consoles. Bandai has also released the announcement trailer above.
Divinity: Original Sin 2 started as a kickstarter campaign in 2016 and raised over 2 million dollars, with more than 40,000 people backing the project. Console owners will now get a taste of this sandbox RPG, with a chance to travel the world of Rivellon, doing whatever they please. The game will feature six unique characters, from a lizard noble named Red Prince to a pirate dwarf named Beast. Players will be able to enjoy the game in both four-player online co-op and two-player split-screen modes.

Ultimately, playing Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition on consoles is a fantastic experience. It may not be the best way to play, as PC still reigns supreme, but it’s a fantastic version of an already great game. If you’re willing to roll the die, and have luck decide your fate, then you’ll have a blast playing through Larian Studios’ update of Divinity: Original Sin.
