Divinity: Original Sin 2 Coming to Xbox One Preview for Free

Divinity: Original Sin 2 Coming to Xbox One Preview for Free

The acclaimed RPG sequel Divinity: Original Sin 2 will be arriving on the Xbox Preview Program for all players to try out for free.

Good news if you're on the lookout for a big new RPG to play on your Xbox One, as Bandai Namco has announced that Divinity: Original Sin 2 is coming to the Xbox Game Preview program for free.

Beginning on May 16, Divinity: Original Sin 2 will be available for all Xbox One owners to download through the Xbox Game Preview scheme. However there's a catch to this, as although the download for the game will be free, you'll only be able to play the first three hours of the RPG, before being booted out.

But Bandai Namco has announced another scheme whereby Xbox One players can gain early access to the game ahead of launch. If you purchase the Divinity: Original Sin 2 Definitive Edition on Xbox One ahead of its launch, you'll be able to play the first 20 hours of the game, at an unspecified date ahead of the full launch.

There's still no solid release date for Divinity: Original Sin 2 on Xbox One and PS4, although Bandai Namco has previously mentioned an August 2018 release window for the console port of the RPG. There's also no word on whether PS4 players will be able to play the game early, but we'll keep an ear out for additional information.

Back when Divinity: Original Sin 2 launched on PC last September, we gave it top marks in our glowing review, with reviews editor Mike Williams praising it as the "pinnacle of the CRPG".
