Divinity Original Sin Enhanced Edition – Console Coop Trailer

, , 33 Comments


Welcome to Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition bringing the multi-award winning RPG from Larian Studios to consoles with a slew of new features and additions. Today we’re focusing on the local and online cooperative experience an experience completely unique to this generation of consoles. Seamless, split-screen couch-coop that lets you fight quest, talk, and explore the world of Rivellon alone or together with a friend! Solving quests in Divinity Original Sin isn’t all about following map-markers you’ll need to search, explore, discover and inquire. Splitting up makes this all the more efficient. Or… less efficient. Player one is on board for escorting the archaeologist in Cyseal back to the town whereas player two seems to have different ideas… Split up to explore and interrogate the many characters in Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition. As one player seeks out his objective another may talk to the many characters in the game offering information about quests, characters, and objectives. Co-op puzzle solving will also require a little lateral team-work such as the Luculla Traps & Trials. But it’s not all about the exploration. As you travel in coop together the screen will seamlessly split as you travel apart giving each player his or her own screen space. Head into your inventory, skill up or even fight away from your friend without hindering his experience. Visit new areas such as caves and caverns without halting your friend’s progression with loading screens and fight independently leaving your partner free to continue doing whatever he was doing. And as in any partnership, there’s democracy served – as in real life – by rock-paper-scissors domination. Argue with one another over the direction of a quest and watch as your relationship changes between yourselves and your companions based on the dominant decision. You can’t always have it both ways! An elf may, for example, demand you kill the orc Victoria. You can kill the elf. You can kill the orc. You can tell the orc that the elf wants her dead and ask for her amulet to persuade him the deed is done. You can report the elf to the Legion. You can, of course, disagree about all of this. In Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition, co-operative play is as dynamic, open and co-operative as your personalities are. Pick a friend and dive in coming October 2015 to PS4 and Xbox One.

    Way to try and leech off Beamdog's Infinity engine remake naming convention, you hacks. But then asking you to come up with a single original idea would be too much, wouldn't it.

    Assuming this will be a free update for people who already own it on PC? Would be a good reason to actually finish it at least.

    Is there now a recipe book where various combinations of items and the order of combinations are written down after one has discovered them? It would make it a lot easier to just check the recipe book for specific combinations.

    Well I am convinced to buy it. Will play it couch co-op with my wife, and I assume online friends will be to drop-in / drop-out as well. Sold

    On PC if you didnt have your full party the set encounters would chew you up and spit you out. Will one player fighting with their 2 characters while the other player runs around in town doing something else even be viable?

    Are they redoing the encounter system for the enhanced edition?

    Keep in mind PC players, all these features are also coming to PC, yes even splitscreen and it's on a new optimized engine!

    You know what's really annoying about trailers from smaller developers? All the snide comments trying to pretend like their game is somehow intellectually superior for not using map markers or something, it's a freaking videogame.

    so the only multiplayer is local or does this split screen if both players are on different playstations in different zip codes (over PSN)

    I'm not sure if I want to play this on the PC or on console. I prefer PC for these types of games, however the couch co-op looks really cool and makes me want to try the console version.

    Will there be a dynamic weather system in JC3? Like if it rains, will the roads be slippery? Love your vids and stay awesome 😀

    That sounds amazing, but is it going to have Online Co-Op? My best friend lives in Wisconsin and I live in Colorado.. its not possible for us to couch co-op. Also we will be on PS4.

    Those are cool but it's really a shame that the saves/achievement are not compatible with the original game 🙁
