Divinity Original Sin 2, One of This Generation's Best RPGs, is Headed to iPad

The developer behind the Mac version of Definitive Edition is handling the port.

It's been nearly three years since Divinity: Original Sin 2 first launched on PC. Since then, Larian Studios and a host of partners have brought the game to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Mac, and Nintendo Switch. Now this excellent RPG is coming to another platform: iPad.

The news of the new port of Divinity: Original Sin 2 - Definitive Edition came from a session during Apple's WWDC20 event. In a session about using Apple's Metal API, an early version of the upcoming port was shown. Divinity: Original Sin 2 - Definitive Edition will be coming to iPad with new touchscreen controls, a touch-friendly user interface, and controller support.

The iPad port of Divinity: Original Sin 2 will be handled by Elverils, the studio that previously ported the game to Mac.There's no word on if there will be cross-save options for the iPad version; being able to move your save between Mac and iPad would probably be a great idea. The Nintendo Switch and Steam versions do allow cross-save between those two platforms, though it can be buggy at times.

There is currently no release window for the iPadOS port of Divinity: Original Sin 2 - Definitive Edition. Still, this marks another portable version of one of USgamer's top games of 2017.

In the meantime, Larian Studios is currently working on Baldur's Gate 3. That title carries forward Divinity: Original Sin 2's difficulty and tone, but with much better presentation and the Dungeons & Dragons setting. Baldur's Gate 3 will be heading into Early Access on PC some time in August, with a planned launch on Google Stadia as well. Larian has no firm release date for Baldur's Gate 3 either.
