I've been innately curious to see what Larian Studios would do with the console release of Divinity: Original Sin, hoping in the back of my mind that the improvements added in the Enhanced Edition would result in a Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls-esque situation. The prospect of playing and enjoying a hardcore cRPG on my couch, but with a controller, has a certain allure that I can't get away from.
Today, Larian pushed out a video showing some of the comparisons between the original D:OS and the Enhanced Edition — and it's looking pretty nifty on consoles.
Apart from the extended modes and graphical improvements, the game is now voiced from start to finish, party gold has been introduced, a party member can be set to automatically repair items for all your characters and a neat split-screen mode that pops up and retracts whenever players split away from each other.
You can see some footage of the radial dials as well, which is useful if you're wondering how to manage all of your spells, items and abilities with a controller.
The Enhanced Edition of Larian's acclaimed RPG launches on the 27th, but most likely early Wednesday our time. If you own the original on PC, you'll get the Enhanced Edition for free — but just remember it'll be listed as a separate game in your Steam library (like Company of Heroes) and your old saves won't cross over.
