Divinity: Original Sin Updated With New Companions, Co-op Dialogue System


How do you improve a game like Divinity: Original Sin that is already so awesome and so massive? Easy answer: Make it even more awesome and even more massive! Okay, I know that’s not very specific. So let’s get specific here for a moment.

Today, Original Sin has been updated on two fronts. There’s a free DLC pack available now titled The Bear and The Burglar, which introduces two new companions to recruit to your party, including a rogue named Wolgraff and a ranger named Bairdotr, each with their own unique talents and backstories to discover. (FYI: On GOG.com the DLC is added when updating the game, but on Steam the DLC needs to be downloaded separately.) Additionally, a new patch has been released to address some bugs, apply more polish to the game and add new features to improve functionality. The main attraction, of course, is a new and improved co-op dialogue system which allows the second player to listen in on their friend’s dialogs and scroll through the discussion history to catch up on the whole conversation.

Pretty cool stuff all around. Watch the latest Kickstarter update (#64!) from Larian Studios below to learn more about the new content. The complete patch notes are posted here.
