Divinity Original Sin Enhanced Edition: Couch Co-op RPG on PS4

Hi PS Blog readers! Kirill here to bring you a load of info about Divinity Original Sin: Enhanced Edition with this new Overview trailer — right on time for Gamescom 2015!

With Divinity Original Sin: Enhanced Edition on consoles we bring couch-coop to RPGs with split-screen! You will have the choice to explore a deceitfully vibrant world on your own or with a friend, either together or independently. When venturing together, you’ll share the same screen-space (with console-comfortable controls and UI). Move apart, and the screen will dynamically and seamlessly split, allowing you to explore the entire world apart… (But that could make the living room awkward!).

Work together and Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition will offer you dynamic, turn-based combat with a range of elemental spells and abilities intertwined with environmental hazards to be exploited against enemies — or yourselves! Shock, burn, smash, and poison your way through a huge, vibrant world as you weave your way through an epic story, playing your own way, and at your own pace.

To suit different playstyles, players will be able to pick a difficulty setting to match their needs. Explorer mode will offer an adventure with a sprinkle of challenge for Source Hunters keen to explore Rivellon, whereas Tactician Mode will throw tweaked, hand-crafted battle-situations at players, designed to crush even the most experienced Divinity veterans.

Get ready to explore the world of Rivellon, alone or with a friend, soon on PlayStation 4!

  • I sure do love local co-op, and this is the best way to implement it: keep the screen large when together, then split when apart. Perfect :-)

  • With local coop this game is a sure buy for me and my wife! Hoping for a release date!

  • Super excited about this! My buddy was recommending the PC version for months, but I don’t enjoy gaming on my PC setup so much, and it would have run pretty poorly. It’s great that I can catch it now, better-than-before. Thanks!

  • Oh my gosh! It’s a dream come true! Like Lego games, except Dungeon-Crawler RPG, which is in every way better! Finally, a game where you can go elsewhere if you feel like it, without 2 separate platforms to play on. Local done right.

    Take note Diablo 3…Please update your horrible 1 person at a time inventory management, at the very least.

  • So this game was only on PC at first & PS4 is now getting the game. The PS4 is a dynamic system because games that are on PC we can now play those games on PS4 too I may have to check this out as well I’m starting to like dungeon crawler RPG’s!!!!!!!!!!!

    • 1) It’s NOT an exclusive title. It’s coming to the XOne too.

      2) Sony came very late to the party. Even the X360 was able to do multiplatforming…a long time ago. So this isn’t a “Sony Achievement”. It’s more like a “finally, a Sony console is able to handle multiplat games!” kind of thing.

  • This was on my Steam wishlist forever…looks like I can just wait a bit longer and play on my favorite platform!

  • I bought this game a while back on PC and have been meaning to play it, but Mouse and Keyboard always put me off when it comes time to play a game (I work at a keyboard all day).

    That you guys are bringing this to PS4 with controller support (and maybe also some unique use of the touchpad too?) along with this awesome-looking couch multiplayer pretty much guarantees a second purchase from me.

    Even though this will likely run and look better on my PC, I’ll take convenience and an optimized experience over raw power any day.

  • Absolutely cannot wait for this game! Thank you sooo much for bringing it to Playstation. Day one purchase for me.

  • Honestly this game didn’t catch my attention at first; however the way it’s been implemented, the fact that local coop has been implemented smartly and now that I’ve seen some gameplay videos, it makes it very very tempting to buy on day one. Any news on the pricetag for this game?

  • I just want to be sure on one thing…is it ONLY couch co-op and no online co-op gameplay?

  • This is brilliant! Was waiting to see if this would show up on Console. Worth the wait :)

  • This and Wasteland 2 in Oct then F4 in Nov, going to be hard to squeeze all these great RPGs in.

  • This game is amazing. I expect future turn based RPGs will borrow heavily from the interface and story telling. Can’t wait to play through this again with my wife on ps4.

    • Ironic, since Larian already “borrowed heavily” from the truly amazing RPGs of yore to make THIS game, so… >:)

  • Let me see if I got it straight

    Drop In / Drop Out Co-op for 4 players
    Any combination of online or local for the 4 players
    Shared screen or split screen for the 4 local players depending on whether they stay together or drift apart?

    Or is the local co-op limited to 2 players?

    Also if more than 1 player playing locally on PS4, do they use their own PSN profile, earn their own trophy, etc?

    • Drop in drop out co-op for 2 players. Couch co-op for 2 players. No 4 player co-op. You can have a party of 4 characters, but they will be divided between two players.

  • Wow, this game just went from “meh, i’ll probably buy it..” to “goddammit, cant wait!!”

    The trailer was really informative and focused on just the right things (from my perspective which is local multiplayer^^) so thanks for that and keep it up!

  • I am really happy to see more games have couch co-op. I especially like the freedom they giving players while in co-op having the option to take two members and go on a different path is nice. ( Hey Sony talk to your developers get more games out there that has split-screen/couch co-op this gamer would love it.

  • Couch Co-op Rpg. Waiting for the retail release. 100% Buy Guaranteed.

    Thanx :)

  • This seems like a great way to introduce my wife to the joys of RPG! Just hope there is a difficulty level between Explorer and Tactician, something with more than a sprinkle of challenge but not something that will crush us :D

  • I’ve made $76,000 so far this year working online and I’m a full time­ student. Im using an online business opportunity I heard about and I’ve made such great money. It­’s really user friendly and I’m just so happy that I found out about it.
    Heres what I do…—->> w­w­w.J­ob­sB­ay­2­4.­C­o­­­­m
