Congratulations on Divinity Anthology!

I got a question : is it possible to purchase the extra's (stickers, posters, soundtrack, DLC items..) without repurchasing the Divinity games once more?

Thanks!

ps Or persuade me to buy this anyway, use strong arguments!

Ok but surely every one on this forum has already bought some of these games right? For myself DKS retail and DD on gog. I don't want to buy them again.

I just found myself a set of earplugs (using a public terminal, no audio boxes of course) and watched the videos. Mr Namdar is a great mascotte by the way.
The Developer's cut is Divinity II + cheats, no Flames of Vengeance am I right?

No no: it's ED + FoV (so basically DKS) + Developer Mode. Definitely the complete Divinity II package!

Now we're talking!
I might just repurchase DKS and DD for Ä30, BUT since I'm sitting here in Ghent right know, and will be next week, I see no reason to pay Ä10 shipping costs. See for the other topic.

A piece of text from the internet link Macbeth posted :

Developer Mode
Play the original version, or experience the game like the designers did and fool around with console commands to your heartís content! Ever wanted to test some new skills on a hoard of a hundred goblins? Go for it! Ever wondered what it would be like to explore the game-world in the guise of a troll? Well there you go! Discover a whole range of spectacular developer commands and feel like a wizard at play!


Yeah, this can be very funny !!
But I suppose it's PC only, not console ...

On the other hand :
I can't say I've played Divinity II too much (just a few hundred of hours? biggrin ) that it become boring to play !
No no no ... it's really a Wonderful & very Fun to play game that can't leave my attention since first release in 2009 !! And I bought both versions (Ego Draconis - DKS) on release .

Only Dragon Commander and div Original Sin can let me stop playing DKS, no other game can go and stay in my mind !
It's as if I've such a special device like Dr Needleman on my head that say "NO" if another game (world) than the Divinity Universe try to take my attention !
:hihi:


On 7th of february 2015 : I start a new adventure in the Divinity world of Original Sin,
it's a Fantastic Freaking Fabulous Funny ... it's my All Time Favorite One !

Is the signed version from the Larian Vault identical to the Amazon version, or is the Amazon version lacking the Signings ?

Are there any other improvements? Don't know if it's just my imagination but those screenshots look better than the original game. Also what about those areas that were cut from the original game; are they included?

I already own the original Divinity 2 and bought DKS as well so I could play the improved version plus add on. I recently bought Divine Divinity as well. For others though who have not got any of the previous games this is a great idea & I like the website.

But for me, I agree with Lotrotk here, I would need some more convincing to part with more cash for pretty much what I already have. It would be nice to be able to purchase the extras you get with the anthology as well.

I'm interested in that, too. There were so many parts cut from Divinity 1 ...

If I order the digital version do I also get a PDF version of the Developer's Journal? Or is that only physical?

Very excited to have the opportunity to fool around with the ED developers' console! smile Nice-looking set, I just hope I was in time for a signed one...

I posted some details about the Anthology here

The digital versions will contain all the goodies that we can include digitally (including the journal and the documentary), but they will lack the unlockable items, posters, stickers. (Somebody correct me if I made a mistake here plz wink )

But the book really is cool wink

As far as cut parts - the developer mode is only active in Divinity 2 (i.e. DKS) but you will be able to get areas where you normally can't get. We didn't include levels that were fully cut however.

hmmm, the soundtracks that were never released and steam keys are convincing, not sure about the console though, tbh the game would be better without it, if i want to mess around with a console i'll do it on a game i dont really care about, like skyrim.

those steam keys really are convincing, because my friend wants divinty 2 DKS but he doesn't have the money, but then again, i don't have the money for the anthology right now :P but £25 for 3 games and LOAD of stuff, its a must buy imo.

Ah, I would've loved to explore the surroundings of Aleroth, though from what I understand, they were entirely unfinished. Or possibly even unstarted.

I've been wanting to get these games for a while and this announcement just made me cave! I can't get the boxed version(I can't really get it in India.. ), but I preordered the digital version. Pretty happy now! thankyou

I have a question or two..

1. What improvements have been added to Divine Divinity and Beyond Divinity? And has that annoying bug in Beyond Divinity(the one on Win7 x64 PCs with > 3 GB of RAM) been fixed?

2. Will we be able to turn off the developer console? I mean, it's a cool feature, but I'd rather I not have the temptation.. :P

3. Will the digital version come with the Steam keys that the Boxed version has? It'd be really amazing if it does! I'd have preferred to get it on Steam, but I want to support you guys completely.. laugh

4. When I opened the My Games page after purchasing the games, It doesn't show me anything.. Is this okay? The Anthology will appear there on the 16th, right?

Damn when i see it, i've all the retail copy of the Divinity saga, but my 3th CD of the Divine Divinity is broken :\ and on e-bay i can only found some magazine attached copy and I don't trust too much on videogame on e-bay, so my question is, the Anthology will be in multilinguage?
My Divine Divinity isn't, but there's a good amatorial italian language translation for that, Beyond Divinity is in italian just like Divinity 2, can someone tell me more about it?
Paypal is waiting xD thank you in advance =)

1. I'm pretty sure the Beyond Divinity bug is fixed, but I'll check once again - I think we already issued patches for that, didn't we ?

2. Yes, you can also play the original game. When you start up the game it asks you in which mode you want to play. Savegames are compatbile between versions.

3. We're trying to get all games on the vault to feature Steam keys. No promise yet as it's one of the things we're still working on (see my blog www.lar.net for more details wink )

4. Yes, it's a small bug. It should be fixed in a couple of hours.Don't worry, your purchase went through.
