Focus Home Interactive and Larian have released a brand new video showing off Divinity: Original Sin’s co-op in action.
Explore a deceitfully vibrant world on your own or with a friend, together or independently in the same playthrough. When venturing together, you’ll share the same screen-space (with console-comfortable controls and UI!), but move apart when playing locally, and the screen dynamically and seamlessly splits allowing you to explore the entire world apart, without loadings.
Cooperative play adds a whole new dimension to Divinity Original Sin; from the turn-based battles giving prominence to teamplay, to quest resolution, exploration, dialogues, and the critical choices that will shape your adventure. Should you kill the Orc, or the Elf? Or none? Or maybe both? There’s always multiple solutions to any given problem in Divinity: Original Sin, and it’s up to you – and your friend, when you play in co‑op – to decide how to progress in your epic adventure. Of course, dissension may arise from time to time… don’t panic! Divinity: Original Sin incorporates an innovative game mechanic, inspired by a real-life ancestral problem solving remedy… rock-paper-scissors!
Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition launches on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this October.
