  • When will the Linux version be available?

Mac and Linux will be arriving at the beginning of December as we finalise the ports. We know it’s been quite a wait, but it’ll be worth it!

 

  • What languages will be supported in the first release?

English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Russian, Polish. Voiceover will be available in English only.

 

  • Who gets the PC or Mac version of the Enhanced Edition for free?

Anyone who bought Divinity: Original Sin on Steam or GOG, and anyone who got a Steam/GOG key from a retail box or Humble Bundle. Note that this offer will only be available if you bought Divinity: Original Sin before the Enhanced Edition is released.

 

  • I backed the Kickstarter, can I get my copy of the Enhanced Edition on my console instead of my PC?

Unfortunately not, only PC/Mac versions of the Enhanced Edition will become available for free for existing owners.

 

  • What new content comes with the Enhanced Edition?

There are many changes in the storyline including hours of extra end-game content.  We’ve recorded voiceovers for each and every NPC dialog, added new quests and situations, and added new characters and game modes. And that’s not all; there are lots of new features that we will be talking about in the coming months!

 

  • If I own Divinity: Original Sin, how do I get my copy of the Enhanced Edition?

You don’t have to do anything! The Enhanced Edition will simply appear in your Steam/GOG library when the game is released.

 

  • Will the game be simplified for consoles, and will that affect the PC version?

No, the only difference between the console and PC version will be the User Interface (you can still activate the console UI on the PC by plugging in a controller). The main “Classic” difficulty mode is the same level of difficulty as the original game.

 

  • Will my saved games transfer from Divinity: Original Sin?

Unfortunately not. There is too much new content and we’ve made too many changes to the underlying code for saved games from D:OS to work.

 

  • Will my Original Sin DLC transfer to the Enhanced Edition ?

The Source Hunter Pack and The Bear and The Burglar DLC will both be included for everyone in the Enhanced Edition.  As for the Art Pack, Design Doc and Soundtrack – it is a part of a DOS collectors edition and will be transferred to DOS EE Collectors Edition.  

 

  • Will any of the new features be included in the existing game?

No. We want to let people still be able to play “Vanilla” Divinity: Original Sin as it was released and improved by subsequent patches.

 

  • Will the Enhanced Edition offer more challenging gameplay?

If you’re going to try some of the new modes, you will definitely find the game more challenging.

 

  • How will the user and graphic interfaces differ between PC and console versions?

They are completely different, with PC UI being improved as well. But if you are on a PC and you plug in a controller, the game will switch to the console UI.

 

  • Should I play the Enhanced Edition if I’ve already finished the original?

Absolutely! Try the couch co-op and new game modes – you’ll love them. And don’t underestimate what we’ve done to the game world – it’s a much deeper experience now, with a very different end game experience.

 

 

  • Are there any new modding tools?

We’ve been working on the editor to make it much more stable. More to announce at a later date.

 

  • When can I see more?

Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition will be playable at Gamescom 2015!

  • Joachim Pileborg

    One question: I haven’t played the original D:OS yet (still waiting for the Linux version ;)), should I still play the original, or should I start directly with the enhanced edition?

    • Raze

      As long as you are waiting for the Linux version, you might as well start directly with the Enhanced Edition.

  • Nathan Vorgang

    Will the PS4 controller be natively supported on the PC version? (along with PS4 button prompts on screen)
