April 5th, 2018 – Richmond, LONDON: BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment today announce that DIVINITY: ORIGINAL SIN 2, the award-winning BAFTA nominated role playing game from Larian Studios, is coming to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in August 2018. Following the game’s incredible success in 2017 as Metacritic’s highest scoring PC game, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment in partnership with Larian Studios, will bring DIVINITY: ORIGINAL SIN 2 to console players taking them on an adventure that will enable players to go anywhere and do anything in one of the deepest RPG worlds ever created.
DIVINITY: ORIGINAL SIN 2 gives players the freedom of a sandbox RPG encouraging improvisation and experimentation with rules made to be bent rather than followed. The game takes place in the world of Rivellon where players can go anywhere, talk to anyone (living, dead, or non-human) and fully interact with the game world like no other RPG. The game features six unique origin characters with full-fledged backstories, personalities and questlines:
- Red Prince – A haughty but heroic lizard noble
- Sebille – An elven assassin
- Lohse – An possessed musician
- Ifan ben-Mezd – A mercenary ex-soldier
- Beast – A rebel-turned-pirate dwarf
- Fane – An undead member of the long-forgotten Eternal race
Console players diving into the world of DIVINITY: ORIGINAL SIN 2 for the first time will enjoy a user interface tailored for console play in both four-player online co-op and two-player split-screen co-op modes. Additional content updates and extra features will be announced leading to the game’s launch later this year.
Development of DIVINITY: ORIGINAL SIN 2 began with a successful Kickstarter campaign in August 2016 raising over $2 million from more than 40,000 backers. The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of DIVINITY: ORIGINAL SIN 2 will be available August 2018.
Our take: we can’t wait to see if the console version will receive the same critical acclaim as the PC version
