Earlier this month, Larian Studios and publisher Focus Home Interactive announced that the release date for the console version of the Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition would be October 27th, which wasn't very surprising. For some reason, they chose not to announce the release date for the PC version, although they did confirm on Twitter a few days later that it was the same. I believe today's press release, which introduces a swanky new trailer focusing on the myriad possibilities of the game's combat system, may be the first official announcement. Check it out:
The combat in Divinity: Original Sin - Enhanced Edition, is both torturously tactical, or bright and breezy! It just depends on your play-style and the level of difficulty you picked. The Enhanced Edition comes with three new difficulty modes: Honor, Tactician, and Explorer, each offering a new, tailor-made experience honing on different play-styles.
Take advantage of crowd control spells such as petrify, charm, and freeze - required in the harder difficulty settings, or simply ignite, enflame, poison, and electrify your way through the world - zapping water under-foot to shock, or engulfing the enemy in flames by igniting a near-by oil barrel.
It's all about using the skills at your party's disposal to supplement each of their player-defined roles. Although featuring 12 classes (including a new class, the Inquisitor), Divinity: Original Sin - Enhanced Edition is really classless. You can mix and match as you develop your characters, chaining abilities and taking advantage of environmental aspects such as water, ice, oil on the floor, and steam clouds, things like that.
Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition launches on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 27.
