Hello Everyone!

Today we are very excited to announce Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition for PS4 and Xbox One as well as PC, Mac, SteamOS and Linux. This isn't just some patch or minor content update to the game you all know and (hopefully) love; it's a whole new experience! With controller support, local co-op with split screen, fully voiced characters, a totally reworked story (with a brand new ending), and much more, we're very proud to finally be able to share what we've crafted here at Larian.

In the update video below, Swen reveals a little more about the fantastic new features you can look forward to in Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition.

Kickstarter Update

We've also included controller support on PC, so now you can kick back and explore Rivellon from the comfort of your sofa with Steam's Big Picture. We've put a lot of effort into streamlining the experience and have designed a slick, new UI that makes playing with a controller just as intuitive and fun as playing with mouse and keyboard.

As well as local co-op, split screen and controller support, the Enhanced Edition also features:

  • All characters are now fully voiced by AAA-voice actors
  • New quests, new characters, and new content
  • A heavily rewritten story with a brand new ending
  • Massively reworked visuals and sound effects
  • And much more to be announced in the coming months!



A Gift For Our Fans

In appreciation of all the fans who helped make Divinity: Original Sin the success that it was, the Enhanced Edition will be completely free to everyone who owns Original Sin. This is a reflection of our immense gratitude to all of you. We deeply appreciate your support, and the feedback we received from you helped us create and polish this game into something that we're extremely proud of.

A Whole New Game


Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition is a completely separate game: not an update to Divinity: Original Sin. Both games will remain available on PC and Mac, and it is important to note that they are totally different entities, so if you've already bought Original Sin you'll see separate listings for Divinity: Original Sin and Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition in your Steam Library. This means that saved games can't be transferred from Divinity: Original Sin to the Enhanced Edition. This is largely because of the technical changes we've made to how the game looks and feels, but the story has also been rewritten so heavily that most saved games would no longer be compatible with the plot. (After all, it wouldn't make sense to load a game in which you're halfway through a quest line that's been replaced with something different.)

From the very first day of production, we designed the Enhanced Edition to be optimized for DirectX 11 graphics. For our Windows players, this means that Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition will require a 64-bit system and a graphics card with DirectX 11 hardware support. However, both editions of the game will remain available to everyone on Steam, so Windows players with 32-bit systems and DirectX 9 will always be able to play Divinity: Original Sin.

When Can We Play?

As Swen says: "When? When it's ready!" We are committed to giving you the best possible experience and we will not compromise on quality, so it's going to take as long as it'll take. But watch this space, the release date is coming soon!

Are You Ready For E3?

We are! At E3 we'll be sharing much more about Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition's features and gameplay, including the much-anticipated new modes of play.

More background?

Then check out Swen痴 blog. He talks about how we came to make the Enhanced Edition and why it痴 such an important part of our future plans. In the mean time, if you want more about what we're up to, check out our forums, and follow us on

Most important question for people who like physical objects (like me):

Will there be a physical retail version of the enhanced edition (in addition to the original retail version) in Europe, or will the enhanced edition be available only as a digital download?

Thanks for checking that out, I forgot to mention that I was asking for the PC version. And will the PC retail version, if it comes, include a printed manual?

Exactly how different are we talking? I bought D:OS but have been too busy to be able to play through anything but the first hour or so. Is it worth my time to play the original, THEN the enhanced edition... or should I just wait and play the enhanced edition for my first full playthrough?

I would think any official localizations for D:OS would be updated for the Enhanced Edition and available with the console versions.

@redmad This is the plan - we will release full list of languages as soon as it will be set in stone.

What about my Talking Underpants (Zandalor's Trunks)? Not sure if I can live without my Talking Underpants! Will those be included in the Enhanced Edition or will it have to be re-bought as Source Hunter DLC again?

Does this mean if I buy the Original now for PC, I will get the Enhanced Edition for free for only PC? Will I have to completely buy the game again for a console?

According to the Kickstarter, you get what you have. If you buy it on PC, you get the Enhanced PC only.

Haha, what? So not only is it being turned into a multi-platform title (the bane of all good gameplay on PC:s since forever) but it requires a DirectX 11 card?

**** off five ways 'til Sunday. That's all I really can say to that. Been waiting for this update since forever, and all it does is screw us over? ****. You.

DirectX 11 has been around since 2009, my computer which is 5 years old has a crappy card and it is DirectX 11. As long as you have later Vista build/7 or newer you probably have a DX11 card!

Why would you say that as if I don't know what hardware I have? What? o_o

And why would the operating system have anything to do with what GFX you're using? Are you high, or just computer illiterate?

Because it also required a 64-bit system and I can only assume he guessed if you didn't have a recent graphics card that you also didn't use 64 bit.

Will any of this changes make their way to the original game? My brother and I are about 100 hours in and would like some of the changes and balance fixes in the original.
