Bandai Namco announced today via a press release that Divinity: Original Sin II will release for both Playstation 4 and Xbox One on August 31. We already knew that the came was coming in August, but now we've got a solid date.
The specifics of the Definitive Edition are still a bit murky, but thousands of changes and updates are included, as well as a new DLC pack. The DLC covers the story of "Sir Lorna the Squirrel," a tale of a squirrel dealing with an existential crisis. Players on Xbox One are able to try the game now via an Xbox Game Preview. Here's a little bit about the game from Bandai Namco.
With Divinity: Original Sin 2 - Definitive Edition, players will be able to play through near endless possibilities by creating an original character or choosing a character featured in one of six different origin stories. The game world will react uniquely to each character, creating limitless possibilities to explore. You play in the world of Rivellon, a world abandoned by the gods. An oppressive order that wields a forbidden magic is rounding up mages from a fear that the mages’ source magic is tearing a rift between worlds. As you grow stronger through your quest, you will replace the gods who left Rivellon however, from your party of four, only one of you will have the chance to become the new Divine.
We thought that Original Sin II was one of the best games of 2017, so we're glad more people will get to experience the game this year on console.
