Divinity Original Sin Enhanced Edition – Console Combat Trailer

, , 26 Comments


We return to Rivellon to take a look at Divinity: Original Sin – Enhanced Edition’s dynamic turn-based combat system. You play a Source Hunter with a plethora of spells and skills at your disposal. But you will often also use the environment against the enemy. With new difficulty modes Explorer, Tactician, and Honor mode as well as classic Original Sin modes enjoy fluid, accurate turn-based combat that performs effortlessly on gamepads. Snap to targets scroll through your skills access your advanced skill bar all thanks to an intuitive control system designed for a gamepads. In a party of 2-4 adventurers some of whom you’ll meet along your journey fight alone or cooperatively in local splitscreen or online picking from 12 classes including the Inquisitor a completely new class. Classes in Original Sin Enhanced Edition are archetypes and you can completely customize them at your will as you level up with new ways to fight! Grenades, dual wielding, and of course, wands! Depending on your desired difficulty mode the combat in Original Sin Enhanced Edition can be torturously tactical or bright and breezy! It just depends on your play-style. Take advantage of crowd control spells such as petrify, charm, and freeze required in the harder difficulty settings or simply ignite, enflame, poison and electrify your way through the world. Zapping water under-foot to shock or engulfing the enemy in flames by igniting a near-by oil barrel. Use of the environment to your advantage and, uh, disadvantage is key to success in combat. Charm a group of wolves to fight for you with a charm grenade or put-out an ally on fire with perhaps the most powerful weapon in RPG history the water balloon. The combinations are as endless as your imagination. Combining skills and the elements as well taking advantage of the party’s skill synergy is a big part of the Original Sin Enhanced Edition experience. Knock down an opponent using Crushing Fist and finish them off with a two-handed sword while they’re still on the ground for extra damage, or set fire to a zombie using Burning Touch and teleport it into a pool of ooze for a bang. Killing has never been so creative. It doesn’t end at fire and water with steam playing a major role in the exorcism of ghosts! Short of a proton pack create a steam-cloud, toss in a lightning bolt and create a static-cloud to fry the ghoulish amalgamations. In Divinity: Original Sin – Enhanced Edition we could talk for hours about the limitless possibilities in combat but, well, you’re better off just playing it this October 27 on PS4 and Xbox One!

    This is how you make a enhanced edition trailer. No live acting, show gameplay, and describe the old and the new to cater any kind of player.

    Argh this looks so good why does it have to come out so close to Fallout? I only have so much time and I'll still be playing wasteland when this comes out. RPG overload.

    Finally a few new ones out that deserve real respect for their work. Divinity and PoE still gives me hope that at least some game devs still have a little bit soul left in them. Gg.

    This game would benefit greatly from more dynamic camera angles and panning in battle. of course with the ability to turn off if you want traditional isometric
