A lot of the changes here are quality-of-life stuff, like making the inventory better to navigate/manipulate, making the quest journal easier to parse, and other UI improvements, and balancing changes including adding a new/easier difficulty mode if you just want to engage in the story without having to worry too much about combat. Perhaps the bigger change, though (and you should just avoid everything from page 14 on), is an overhaul of the third act of the game. Seems a lot of folks had some issues with the story beats and how certain elements played out so Larian Studios revamped things.

Check Out Some Gameplay For Divinity: Original Sin 2 Definitive Edition Enoch Starnes

First and foremost, the Definitive Edition brings the game from the home computer to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, both of which offer offline co-op for two players and online co-op for up to four.  PC players have plenty to rejoice too, though, because the Definitive Edition brings with it a host of free changes to those who already own the "Classic" edition.  Before we get into all that, how about you take a look at some gameplay?

The sale runs for the next two weeks until Monday, June 18 around 6:00 PM EDT, so you should have plenty of time to scroll through the full list of games and make some choices about how much of your money to dish out for some DRM-free games. The good news is that if you spend just $5 during the sale, you'll get a free copy of the survival/exploration title, Sunless Sea (not co-op, sadly, but still fun!) Spend $20, and you'll also get a copy of the adventure title RiME. There's also a giveaway going on right now until 9:00 AM EDT on Wednesday, June 6 where you can get a free copy of Xenonauts, a turn-based strategy game that "recaptures the original X-COM: UFO Defense gameplay." Sounds like this won't be the only giveaway during the sale, either.

In all fairness, it's Nick's fault that I got searched and caused everyone to get mad. If had just left the dead body alone, then that one Magister wouldn't have gotten upset and it would have been perfectly fine that I stole a book!

One quick note about this FAQ, while it was written with exposure to only the PC version of the game (as the console versions are forthcoming), we're assuming many of the features/mechanics will apply to consoles as well. If anything is different on the consoles once those versions are released, we'll update this with the appropriate information.

Bloody Zombies (PC and PlayStation 4) - supports up to four players online, local, or combo! A side-scrolling brawler with a unique mechanic where one of the four players can participate while wearing a VR headset (for the PS4 and PC versions at least). The person wearing the VR headset is able to look around the environment more and see what's in store for the group. The Xbox One version does not support the VR headset, and will be releases next Thursday, Sept. 21.

The co-op features are covered (rather cleanly, I must say) in the first couple minutes of the update video. If that's all you care about, then watch those two minutes, be joyous and happy, and enjoy the rest of the day!

I've poked my head into the Early Access version of the game every so often to check out what's changed since the last update/patch, and things are still looking really good. I especially like the two new magic classes, Polymorph and Summoning, that were added in March. If you're a fan of cRPGs and/or tabletop gaming at all, I think Divinity: Original Sin 2 is going to scratch that particular itch even better than its predecessor.

One of the things I love about Larian Studios is how much fun they seem to have in their game design. The new Polymorph school of magic, for instance, not only allows you to buff your playable character with specific features like wings to gain new ground in combat or tentacles to strip weapons from your foes, but you can also turn enemies (or friends) into chickens. And that's just in a combat situation as those same skills can be used out of battle in some creative ways as well.

Many of the same character progression and combat aspects of Original Sin are still present in the sequel. For instance, each level your character gains grants them a number of points in spread across a combination of four categories: character stats, Combat Abilities, Civic Abilities, and Perks. The character stats are the familiar strength, intellect, finesse, constitution, etc. that were present in the first game.

Divinity: Original Sin was a hit when it was released back in 2014, due in large part to the extent of freedom granted to its players, who subsequently found tremendous ways to "break" the game.  As our friends over at Rock Paper Shotgun have pointed out, the sequel looks to further improve on that formula.  In order to verify that they're headed in the right direction, however, the folks over at Larian Studios have decided that, on September 15th, they'll let anyone willing to plop down the required dough have a chance to provide a bit of feedback before the game's planned December release.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 (henceforth D:OS2) is currently in pre-alpha, which means that only specific parts are currently ready for player consumption. The new feature Larian Studios was demonstrating at PAX East was the Player Vs. Player (PVP) Arena system for the game. Had I known I would be facing Swen Vincke (founder, creative director, and CEO of Larian) himself in PVP, I may well have decided to stay in bed that Saturday morning. As it was, I found myself going up against him, both of us with two characters: a Warrior and a Ranger.
