Divinity: Original Sin 2 Coming to PS4 and Xbox One in Summer

Original Sin is coming back to bite you in the butt, like it has since Biblical times.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 is coming to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this August. This is excellent news for console users (e.g. myself), as Larian Studio's RPG walked away with multiple awards when it launched on PC last Fall.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a staggeringly deep RPG that encourages you to boot down walls and barriers. It cheers you on as you bend the rules of its world (or just break them clean in half). You can go anywhere and strike up detailed conversations with anyone. You suffer consequences and reap rewards according to everything you say and do. Our own Mike Williams loves the game. He gave the PC edition a perfect score, and named it as one of his favorite games of 2017. He describes the experience as "equal parts grand freedom and vicious punishment."

According to a press release distributed earlier today by Bandai Namco (which is handling the console ports), Divinity: Original Sin 2's user interface will be optimized for consoles. Multiplayer options include four-player online and two-player local co-op split-screen. Bandai Namco says more new features and additions will be announced as the August release date draws nearer.
