One of the most expansive and immersive RPG experiences is just around the corner from launching and today, we’re excited to share a final glimpse of Divinity: Original Sin 2 – Definitive Edition ahead of the game’s release on August 31, 2018 for the PlayStation® 4 and Xbox One in the Americas.

Today’s trailer features a look at the detailed character creation mechanics, where players can choose from six unique origin plots, as well as additional footage of crafting, conversation choices, and a taste of the game’s newly expanded dialogue – also featured in the game’s completely re-written third chapter.

Players also get a look at battle gameplay, including all new moves, spells, and environments to exploit against enemies’ weaknesses. In addition, the trailer also delivers a look at Divinity: Original Sin 2 – Definitive Edition’s split screen co-op and revamped Arena Mode which features solo gameplay, online multiplayer PVP, and pass-the-controller Hot Seat mode. Arena Mode also introduces 16 characters to the game, including some first-time playable characters such as Malady, Zandalor, and Radeka, each with their own unique set of skills and abilities.

Developed by Larian Studios, Divinity: Original Sin 2 for PC won PC Gamer’s 2017 Game of the Year award and a 2018 British Academy of Film and Television Arts award (BAFTA). Divinity: Original Sin 2 – Definitive Edition is a completely upgraded game, with thousands of tweaks and lifestyle improvements to create the ultimate console experience; including split-screen co-op and a completely rewritten third chapter, as well as beautiful 4K and HDR ready graphics.

Lastly, those who pre-order Divinity: Original Sin 2 - Definitive Edition will also receive the Sir Lora DLC at launch. The DLC features brand new squirrel companion, Sir Lora, who requests your help from the Knights of Drey, an order of furry knights who believe in the coming of the Great Acorn. By recruiting this runaway squirrel, players will unlock skill-crafting recipes and most importantly, they will get the opportunity to dive deeper into the mysteries surrounding the Great Acorn!
