Divinity: Original Sin 2 — Definitive Edition demo coming to Xbox One on May 16th


If you’re like me, you think Larian’s Divinity: Original Sin series is an absolute triumph of classic RPG design and execution. If you are like me, you’ll also be pretty jazzed about this news: Bandai Namco is bringing D:OS2 – DE to Xbox One early! As of the 16th of May, players can access the first three hours of the game for free through Xbox Game Preview. Additionally, if you know you’re going to be buying the game anyway, you can preorder it and get access to Act 1 of the game immediately.

Now, I was a huge fan of the game when I first played it while it was in early access on Steam. As such, I am absolutely thrilled that the game is continuing to be supported, especially on consoles. Larian’s founder Swen Vincke claims the change log to the Definitive Edition is 45 pages long, which is staggering and just entrenches Larian in my high regard. Remember, this is on top of an already incredibly long and deep experience.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 – Definitive Edition  will be available for Xbox One and Playstation 4 in August of this year. If I’m reading this correctly, current owners of D:OS2 will get the Definitive Edition for free, just like Enhanced Edition for the first game. I’m very excited, and I hope you are too.
