New voice cast, new quests, new controls, new combat, new characters & more.
Next week, 'Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition' is coming to the PS4 & Xbox One, but it's also coming to the PC (it will be free for owners of the original game). Thus, even for 'Divinity: Original Sin' PC veterans, it's worth knowing what's in store, and what's in store change wise is a lot.
There is a newly produced, fully-voiced set of dialog voice acting for the game. There are console features, like two player controller support and splitscreen co-op that will be in the PC version as well. Plus, there is now DirectX11 support. The game has been expanded both in terms of quest content and in terms of combat options (dual-wielding!). The new difficulty options should help both veterans find challenge (crazy stuff) and those altogether unfamiliar with the genre.
Heck, even the companions will talk to each other in classic oil and water fashion.
Here's a summary of changes from Focus Interactive:
Divinity Original Sin: Enhanced Edition comes with lots of new content to make your journey through Rivellon more exciting than ever. We have thousands of lines of dialogue now fully voiced by AAA voice actors Alix Wilton Regan and Alec Newman, as well as hours of new content including quests, combat-styles, locations, changes to the crafting system and a reworked storyline.
