Bandai Namco and Larian Studios bring the RPG to consoles

Divinity: Original Sin 2, Larian Studios’ acclaimed fantasy role-playing game, is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this August. Bandai Namco will publish those ports of the PC game.

The console version of last year’s sandbox RPG will include “a user interface tailored for console play in both four-player online co-op and two-player split-screen co-op modes,” Bandai Namco said in a release. Content updates and extra features for the console version of Divinity: Original Sin 2 are promised in the coming weeks and months.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 was released for Windows PC in September 2017. The role-playing game offers immense freedom and interaction for players. The game stars “six unique origin characters with full-fledged backstories, personalities, and questlines: Red Prince, a haughty but heroic lizard noble; Sebille, an elven assassin; Lohse, a possessed musician; Ifan ben-Mezd, a mercenary ex-soldier; Beast, a rebel-turned-pirate dwarf; and Fane, an undead member of the long-forgotten Eternal race.”

Larian Studios successfully crowdfunded Divinity: Original Sin 2 in 2015 via Kickstarter, raising $2 million from backers. In our review of the game, we praised Original Sin 2’s ambition and gameplay, but criticized its cohesiveness.
