Update #74: Countdown to Divinity: Original Sin - Enhanced Edition!

36 likes

Hey everybody!

It’s been a little while since our last update, but boy have we been busy! 

Not only do we have our hands full plotting and scheming for Divinity: Original Sin 2, we’ve also been putting the final final touches on Divinity: Original Sin - Enhanced Edition, which we're absolutely thrilled to put into your hands in the coming week.

Thunderclap!

Divinity: Original Sin - Enhanced Edition is arriving in just 6 days, and we're trying to spread the news. 

For maximum effect, we've started a Thunderclap Campaign: It's a bit like Kickstarter for social media. We need 200 people to join us and share their voices about the Enhanced Edition. If we get over 200 volunteers then, on October 27th, Thunderclap will blast out timed Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr posts from all of our volunteers, creating one unified tsunami of social media noise. 

Help us out and please add your voice to our Thunderclap campaign here! The more people we get playing Divinity: Original Sin - Enhanced Edition, the better and richer our community will be!

What’s different about Divinity: Original Sin - Enhanced Edition

There's a lot of enhanced editions out there these days, but ours is really something. If you're wondering what's different, then the answer is pretty much everything. Don’t believe us? Check out this video in which Swen takes you through a tour of what we've been doing over the last year:



Ready, set … go!

If you have Divinity: Original Sin already, then an extra entry (Divinity: Original Sin- Enhanced Edition) will appear in your Steam or GOG libraries. The Enhanced Edition will be listed in addition to the original game, so you can play both. Everyone who bought Divinity: Original Sin on Steam or GOG (and anyone who got a Steam/GOG key from a retail box or Humble Bundle) will get the Enhanced Edition for free.

If you want to get Divinity: Original Sin - Enhanced Edition on console, you can pre-order for PS4 and Xbox One here.

Ahora en español!

Divinity: Original Sin - Enhanced Edition supports all the languages of the original version: English, French, Italian, German, Russian, and Polish. And we’ve added Spanish support too! In addition, we’d like to thank our community in the Czech Republic for localising the game into Czech for the PC version - díky!

Mark your calendar for October 27th.

Divinity: Original Sin - Enhanced Edition will be out on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on October 27. Mac and Linux will be right on their tail, 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!

Shout-outs! 

Just before we go, we’d like to point you towards our friends at Iron Tower Studio. Their new game, The Age of Decadence, is available to buy now! Check out their website for more details!

      @eNTI: "...always had a 32bit compatibility layer..."

      Not for drivers so any software/hardware without a 64-bit driver won't work. Examples include Microsoft's Sidewinder Force Feedback Joystick http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-hardware/windows-7-64-bit-is-unable-to-find-driver-for/37b56279-bd2c-4e0d-8397-4fcf8691a5f2 or Force Feedback Wheel https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-US/e6748474-6d65-4091-9dda-2a58c6d440df/microsoft-usb-sidewinder-force-feedback-wheel-driver-issue…

      In addition I use security software that relies on modifying the System Service Descriptor Table which Patchguard tries to block on 64-bit systems. Whatever the benefits of Patchguard for a base-level Windows system, it has the effect of restricting security software developers and preventing me from exerting the level of control over my system that I am accustomed to (i.e. being able to control exactly what programs are run and choosing, on a case-by-case basis, which of those are allowed to install drivers, set hooks or modify significant Registry entries).

      @AstralWanderer: Windows is running on 64bit for YEARS now and always had a 32bit compatibility layer. There's no reason why either hardware or software should make you any problems. I can't believe you are running a cpu that doesn't support 64bit???

      Agreed with the comments below on the Linux delays - whatever the problems Larian encountered, fixing them should have been given highest priority - not running another project.

      Me, I'm disappointed that this version is 64-bit only (and steered clear of D:OS2 since that would presumably be the same). The transition from 32-bit to 64-bit Windows would be immensely disruptive (given the amount of legacy hardware/software I have) so I have no intention of making that switch.

      Ok. Let me try to get this straight. When DO:S was released, Linux was "soon to follow". Then you started working heavily on improving the engine and ran into a point where you said you could not merge the two branches anymore. We should wait for teh awesome Extended version, in other words: wait one more year.

      Then the Extended version is soon to be released and it is from the comments that I get the information, that Linux is, again, "coming soon after". Mind you, last time you said soon, that meant more than a full year.

      Then I read, again in the comments, that it is not actually "soon", but in December. I would not call that "soon after".

      So, actually, since you're now working on D:OS2, which again uses the same engine, which will likely again get improved, this will again lead to two unmerge-able branches and, that's my own guess, we should then wait for awesome D:OS2, I even have not backed because you still have not delivered on D:OS1?

      Please bare with me, but there is a limit to everything and this time, there is no more excuse, really...

      At least for Steam (and presumably GOG), the plan is to release the Windows version of the EE by 10am PST on Tuesday, so 6pm CET. Google for other time zone conversions, or use World Time Buddy, etc.

      At what time will DOSEE be available? (preferably CET)

      @LordMatsu

      DoS was also funded with the help of Linux users.
      June 2014: update #63, DoS launches for Windows
      October 2014: update #65, Windows get a big update, Linux version moved to beginning of next year (2015)
      May 2015: update #67, no Linux news for 7 months but we get: Today we are very excited to announce Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition for PS4 and Xbox One as well as PC, Mac, SteamOS and Linux.
      August 2015: update #72, low and behold DoS2 is announced, no Linux support
      October 2015, update #74, PC, PS4 and Xbox One (2 of these where not even part of the original kickstarter) get the game this month, Linux gets delayed.

      Maybe you get an idea why we are pissed and although you call us complainers I wonder how you would feel if your version of the game was 18 months behind the rest.

    8. LordMatsu on

      All you Linux and Mac complainers, he said 4-5 weeks more. There is no "might." Just be patient.

      Preordered the ps4 version today. Hoping to get my roommate hooked :) Good luck with the launch!

      Déjà vu! So no Linux version of DOS-EE either. Noticed that December of which year was not specified.

    12. Raze_Larian on

      @Christopher Nobles
      You'll get the EE even if you redeem the D:OS key after the EE is released.

      Again Linux users have to wait. And you know if you were serious about a Linux port, then I would kind of expect you to put a Penguin on the bottom of the webpage for the Enhanced Edition. I mean you have the Logo for all other platforms there, even Mac.

      Honestly there is nothing more to say than you lost any business integrity for me. Linux backer here.

      So after a year and a half, we *might* get a Linux version? Or maybe they'll release it on tablets, phones and fridges first. I pity the one part time developer working on the Linux port.

      assuming you're serious with mac/linux version at the beginning of december, why not at least make a day1 public beta for both systems? would help both sides ;)

    17. Datayum on

      "out on PC, [...] Mac and Linux"

      Linux and Mac are installed on PCs. Windows can be on tablets. Saying PC when you mean Windows doesn't work anymore, you need to say Windows. Please update your brains. :)

    18. Benoit Tousignant on

      I was hoping to be able to choose to get my free copy on PS4 instead of PC. I'm a bit disappointed by that.

      Guess that means my, unopened Divinity Kickstarter CE will be upgraded :)

      yup, thanks from another Linux backer :( I truly doubt we will see it beginning of december..... pretty sad about this, I'll put Larian on the list of don't ever help them back another project, see it when its on sale somewhere. You should take a look at how King Art does it, they not that far away from so you might want to hop by and ask them how they can keep their Linux promises.

      Thanks for the Age of Decadence shout out! We need more niche RPGs that cater to the older audience.

      Check it out (demo available): http://store.steampowered.com/app/230070/

      Further delay for the Linux version that was promised in the kickstarter? Meanwhile, Xbox and PS4 -- which were not even mentioned in the kickstarter -- will get it before your Linux backers?

      I am quite disappointed with how you have handled this Larian. I tried D:OS on Windows and it was a nice game, but it's unlikely I will ever buy anything from you again because of the disrespect and broken promises you have given your Linux backers.

      Good luck in your future endeavors.

      I haven't activated my Steam key yet from backing the game. Do I need to activated before the 27 in order to get a copy of the Enhanced Edition?

    25. Jimmy Van Hecke on

      My Steam Link arrived this friday...me and my wife are ready.

    26. Michael Campbell on

      Oh, we get a free copy of Enhanced Edition? Nice, wasn't expecting that. I guess I will give my pledge copy from the D:OS2 KS to one of my friends.
