Nothing official has been announced about the digital CE besides the fact there will be one and SEA buyers will have an option to upgrade to it. So for now you can't do much besides wait.

I feel ya.. a nice high rez digital map would be awesome lol.. in place of the cloth map.
And the second key to the game for co op
Also digital copies of divine divinity and beyond divinity .. and all the dlc .. only thing missing would be the cards and dice really.
Posted By: Darth_Trethon Re: Digital CE - 27/05/14 09:58 PM
Well the dice are gone anyway, due to the manufacturer being unable to manufacture them on time none of the CEs will have dice anymore.

Well, they specifically said the physical CE would have everything that the digital CE would have.. so, you can expect the latter not to have anything extra beyond what the physical CE has. No exclusive digital deluxe rewards, in other words.

Maybe the price will be lower since it lacks physical items, but that's just me speculating.

i was thinking the same thing... the physical is 100 right .. maybe 70 for digital version

physical CE is 70 actually
Posted By: LeBurns Re: Digital CE - 28/05/14 12:31 AM
Whoa, that's a lot extra for a few extra things. How much digital stuff are they adding anyway? I already have the prior games.

The only thing in the CE that interests me at all is this:

A pair of DLC items

But I have no idea what those are, but I'm sure they are not worth an extra $30 or whatever. I can buy a good game for that much.

Oh my bad then (hmmmm, uncommon not to have the 1 = 1$ which is a standard in video game industry...)

as for the CE, if you're only interested in digital reward wait a bit for the digital collector upgrade which would contain only the DLC for a lower price

Thats what this whole thread is about the digital CE
Posted By: Chaotica Re: Digital CE - 28/05/14 03:40 PM
yes indeed but people seems to think that the digital CE would cost the same than the physical CE (which, IMO is not true) so if you wanna make an assumption, you should base your hypothesis on what is already known : the price of the physical CE. So I just stated that as they are only interested in DLC, they should indeed wait for the digital CE which will be LESS EXPENSIVE than the physical one so may be the DLC worth the extra price in this case

I'm sure it is (or I wouldn't be here), but how much more should I pay for just a Golden Grail and some Epic trunks of intelligence? I already have the older games and I don't need another copy of DOS. Obviously the physical items won't be included, so there just isn't much there for the extra cost for me. Still I'll wait to see exactly what the digital CE will include, and what it will cost.

I can sympathize. I do wish the selling part of the game had been handled a bit better. More options here would have always been nicer; I don't think anyone should ever be made to feel they should have to purchase a game twice just to get their preferred edition (especially if we assume people joined in on SEA to help with the alpha/beta rather than just being impatient).

If people could return their Steam versions and just get the physical CE, they very well might (and probably would since the CE comes with Steam keys). Unfortunately (as we all know) that almost never seems to be an option for any Steam purchase. Hopefully the digital CE upgrade option will be reasonably priced, seeing as 1) SEA users have already invested $40 and 2) it lacks physical items and 3) apparently won't include any additional digital content that isn't in the physical CE.

So, Steam has the Digital CE up. $70, includes two copies of Divinity: Original Sin, the Source Hunter DLC pack, plus Beyond Divinity and Divine Divinity.

The Source Hunter DLC pack is available for $10, and it unlocks Divinity Original Sin: The Golden Grail DLC, Divinity Original Sin: Zandalor's Trunks DLC, Divinity: Original Sin Design Documents and Art Pack, and Soundtrack. This appears to be the "upgrade" solution for SEA backers.

So, going the "upgrade" path instead of buying a digital or physical CE will result in less stuff, but a lower total cost of $50. There doesn't seem to be a way to upgrade to the $70 digital package.

I'm a little confused by the "Divinity : OS Design Documents and Art Pack", as that is not included in the physical CE.

Thanks for the info. I suppose the design docs are to take the place of the physical stuff, but I thought they said there wouldn't be unique stuff in the digital CE?

Well, if that's it then I may as well just get the regular edition. I can't image the other stuff being worth the extra cost when I don't need the extra games.

Hello Larian! Just wanted to buy Digital CE of D:OS on Steam,but it says that I have already bought D:OS, and there one option remains to buy as present.Could you tell me can I and others like me upgrade D:OS to D;OS Digital CE version?

Edit:I can buy Source Hunter Pack DLC,but I need namely Digital CE because I want to gift the second copy of D:OS to my friend-)

EDIT2:Forgot to mention I bought Divinity Anthology when it was available .Thus I have copy of Divine divinity,Beyond Divinity, Divinity 2 DevCut,D:OS gold grail DLC and and now I have D:OS Early Access version
I also sent my letter to Support
Thanks in advance!!
Posted By: Darth_Trethon Re: Digital CE - 29/05/14 08:56 PM
Well they're not unique, not if you count the KS backers. The lowest physical tier to include the Design Docs and Artbook is $75(USD) while the lowest digital tier to include them is $100(USD).
Posted By: VienxInq Re: Digital CE - 29/05/14 09:55 PM
Imo there should be a upgrade tier for people who bought into the Alpha/Beta since they have the base game. Having us paying the difference shouldn't be that hard really. I mean having to pay $70 even tho I already spent $39.99 kinda sux.

I don't make a lot of $ so I have to be careful what I invest my $ in and D:OS was and still is the bet option. I just hope the $29.99 upgrade option comes around so I can keep investing.

I don't get it at all...what are you talking about? If you choose a steam key from your tier what's keeping you from buying the $10 Source Hunter pack which gives you all the digital CE goodies for your Steam copy of the game without having to buy the $70 Digital CE?
Posted By: VienxInq Re: Digital CE - 29/05/14 11:21 PM
What you don't get is what you don't know. The $10 doesn't give you everything the DCE has.

Divinity : Original Sin $39.99 ( Base game )

Buy Divinity Original Sin - Source Hunter DLC pack - $10

Unlocks Divinity Original Sin: The Golden Grail DLC, Divinity Original Sin: Zandalor's Trunks DLC, Divinity: Original Sin Design Documents and Art Pack, and Soundtrack. (DLC will only be made available on release.)

Buy Divinity: Original Sin Digital Collectors Edition - $69.99

Includes two copies of Divinity: Original Sin, the Source Hunter DLC pack, plus Beyond Divinity and Divine Divinity. Send the second copy to a friend! (DLC will only be made available on release.)

As you can see there is a big difference. I am not against the DLC at all. My post was just stating that there should be an upgrade option for owners of the base game to the DCE. Not to just buy the DCE for $70 or the DLC contents for $10.

I don't see much difference at all actually. Divine Divinity along with Beyond Divinity cost $6(USD) each or $12(USD) for both(prices as shown on the Larian Vault and Steam) so let's do some math:

$40 SEA purchase + 10 Source Hunter pack +12 for DD and BD = $62

That gives you everything the Digital CE has for $62 instead of $70 minus one copy of Original Sin which doesn't much matter to you personally....your pal will have to buy the game him/herself but oh well...too bad so sad. The trade-off you got instead of the 2nd copy was the Alpha and Beta access which do cost money.

While being part of the development cycle is seen as a great boon for some people, it is actually a tool for the developers that requires work on the part of both parties - even if it is doing what you normally do. That is work that is unpaid, but is nonetheless work. The developer gets feedback, bug reports, and fun statistics to work with and everyone gets a more polished game as a result.

I couldn't care less about getting DD or BD, as I own them both already. However, I would truly like to have the same opportunity for obtaining CE content for an additional cost, rather than simply purchase the CE x2 - because it does matter to a lot of us.

So I'm looking at 60 + 10 + 10 = 80, which is ten dollars more than what is on offer right now, but I miss out on all the CE goodies, like the trunk and the grail for each account. That's the crux of the matter, really. VienxInq had a point and you didn't get it, which is OK, but waxing snarky doesn't help with understanding.

Agreed, particularly when it's aimed at newer players coming into the community. It doesn't make the best first impression. Don't let that behavior run you off, folks. The developers here are great, even if some of the locals could use more polish.

Why do people keep perceiving me as an ass? I just say things the way they are....and Nasotha, you do get the trunks and golden chalice with the $10 CE content package....you don't miss out on that. And you don't have to pay for it twice. You're already doing the person to whom you give your second key a huge favor by giving them the game, if they want the extra stuff they can pay for it themselves. Or am I missing something here....where do you get your 60+10+10 from if you're not getting the CE upgrade? The game is $40 iirc or will the actual release be $30 in which case I could see your $60 but what's $10+$10 for then? Even the CE only gets one copy of the CE content so if the person getting the second copy of the game wants it they'd have to pay $10 which would still amount to $80 but what do you mean you miss on the CE content like the chalice and the trunks? I am NOT being a smartass here I literally see no sense in your argument at all.
Posted By: VienxInq Re: Digital CE - 30/05/14 12:03 PM
Yeah, sry for sounding snoody and the such. I didn't mean it like that but I can come off that way at times. For that I am sorry Darth. Trying to make a point can be done better. I don't always read back to myself what I write. which I usually do but this was one of those times I didn't.

Well, spoke too soon. The Source Hunter DLC pack has been removed from Steam, for some reason.

Probably because it's too soon....buying it won't give you anything until the game releases so there's no point for it to be there. Or they got the content list/price/whatever wrong. I wouldn't mind it much attention now anyway, it's irrelevant until release day anyway and it'll probably be back by then.
Posted By: Gyson Re: Digital CE - 30/05/14 10:56 PM
Well, it's a little relevant. It basically was the only thing on the Steam store informing current SEA backers interested in the digital CE that a cheaper purchase option exists. Hopefully it comes back soon. Maybe it's a screwup on Steam's end and Larian doesn't even know.

I just copied this off of STEAM:

Buy Divinity: Original Sin Digital Collectors Edition
Includes two copies of Divinity: Original Sin, the Source Hunter DLC pack, plus Beyond Divinity and Divine Divinity. Send the second copy to a friend! (DLC will only be made available on release.)

So the DLC is still there, just not released early.
Posted By: James 540 Re: Digital CE - 31/05/14 01:04 PM
Larian ,I refused to resist to my temptation to buy SourceHunters Pack when it was availble,I hope very much, that dissapearing of that thing will not affect on my purchase....

Yeah, the $70 Digital CE is still there. The $10 Source Hunter upgrade for existing owners is the one that's removed and missing.

The Golden Grail DLC will not be available to digital-only KS backers? I'm not interested in the upgrade pack because my pledge already have all that content except the Grail

Interesting question, I imagine that certain digital tiers are considered to be digital CEs(maybe $80 and over?) but none of them says this outright so I'm just guessing here. I already have the golden grail for Original Sin unlocked on the Larian Vault because I got it from the boxed physical version of the Divinity Anthology.
