Divinity Original Sin 2 To Receive Major Changes For PS4 and Xbox One
Divinity Original Sin 2 has become quite the hit given its sandbox RPG approach and story-driven gameplay, and as such fans are eagerly awaiting the game’s console debut on PS4 and Xbox One, which is set to happen this summer. That said, developer Larian Studios isn’t simply releasing a straight port of the PC version of the game. The developer is reportedly making some significant changes exclusive to the console versions of the game.
The news comes by way of GameSpot, which has revealed that the entire third act of the game is being “completely reworked” for consoles. The Arx region will feature new NPCs, dialogue, and quests in order to improve the overall flow of both the story and the overarching game. Seven new combat encounters are also being added for other Arx questlines.
In addition to the third act rework, an option tutorial for Divinity Original Sin 2 is also being introduced. Alongside the more helpful learning curve is a new difficulty setting called Story Mode, which will allow players to flee from battle and resurrect party members as often as needed.
Another batch of changes exclusive to consoles is a reworked journal and inventory interface. All of the journal entries have also been rewritten, and they will be divided into three different categories: quests, lore, and origin quests. Players will also have access to new map markers, which should further help with questing. In regards to inventory, console players will be able to select multiple items at once, and will also be able to shift items into the ‘wares’ category.
Divinity Original Sin 2 arrives on PS4 and Xbox One this August. The title is currently available on PC.
