Divinity: Original Sin 2 is coming to consoles

Xbox and PS4 gamers with unrealised dreams of being a disgraced lizard prince and demon fetishist, rejoice, for your time is now. Soon, anyway. First launched on PC in 2017 to almost instant megahit status, Larian’s fantasy RPG will be out on console sometime in August.

Much like the 2015 Enhanced Edition of the first game, Divinity: Original Sin 2 will feature local co-op for two players, and online co-op for up to four players on console, plus “a massive number of much-wanted tweaks and additions”, according to the press stuff.

The sequel was funded on Kickstarter in less than 12 hours, with the campaign banking a total $2 million from 40,000-something backers, and it was the top-rated PC game on Metacritic last year with an average review score of 93. Get hype.
