Divinity: Original Sin II - Console and Other Stuff

by Myrthos, 2018-04-10 22:40:59

We already knew that a console version of Divinity: Original Sin 2 will be coming to us, so that is not the actual news in this posting, but we can't miss the opportunity of Swen telling us this. Next to that this update and video also shows what they are plannig to change to the journal and inventory. And there is news about PAX and the vinyl soundtrack, we already knew about, so I don't know if it counts as news.


And for completness, this is the official announcement trailer.


And if you don't want to watch the videos, here is some text:


Your feedback has always been invaluable to us, and we’re still listening! Its safe to say that your number one request in Divinity: Original Sin 2 was for a better journal, so we’ve been hard at work on just that. Our new and improved journal still won't hold you by the hand, but it will be a more direct and useful tool.  

  • We’ve shortened the text to make it clear what you are supposed to do.  
  • We’ve split multiple paths within the same quest into subdivisions.  
  • When the journal gives you map markers, you can now jump straight from that journal entry to the specific marker on the map screen.  


The second biggest request we’ve received is for better inventory management. While we began by looking for ways to tweak the system, we ultimately decided the best idea was to redo it from the ground up. 

You’ll soon be able to see your whole party's inventory at-a-glance, and we’ve also added multi-selecting. This will make it easier to bulk-select items to add to your wares or hand over to your teammates.
