Divinity: Original Sin II - Definitive Edition details revealed on Kickstarter
Divinity: Original Sin II's console port and PC update are releasing in under two months via the game's Definitive Edition, but the exact nature of the game's updates had been a bit vague until now. However, Larian finally gave us the details of the massive update through the game's original Kickstarter page, as well as with a video update on the studio's Youtube channel.
The definitive edition update is slated to have thousands of changes and tweaks of varying scope. Over 130,000 new words on dialogue have been recorded in an effort to tweak some of the loose narratives in the back parts of the game, based on fan feedback. Combat encounters have also been overhauled in order to stomp out awkward difficulty spikes, while also adding brand new encounters to the game. Related to difficulty, the game now has a new Story mode for those wanting to just experience the game's narrative, or perhaps for those PC players wanting to breeze through the game in a second playthrough.
The Definitive Edition will also contain several bits of balance related changes and performance tweaks. Lastly, those who either pre-order the console version of the game or own the original PC version will receive access to a new small mini story about Sir Lora the Squirrel Knight.
