Acclaimed RPG Divinity: Original Sin 2 is getting an upgrade.

The RPG, developed by Larian Studios, has just announced a release date for Divinity: Original Sin 2 – Definitive Edition at E3. The game, being published by Bandai Namco, is officially coming to consoles this August.

This version of Divinity is pretty much the same as previous versions, but with new features added to the mixture for console play. Some of the changes include a party inventory system, a new journal system, a new tutorial, an updated PVP area and a brand new Story Mode difficulty setting.

The biggest change, however, is a total rewrite of the games third chapter. The reason given by Bandai Namco is “so that players will be fully immersed in Divinity: Original Sin 2 – Definitive Edition’s rich and compelling story.”

Bandai Namco also released a new E3 trailer promoting the game, showing off the graphical upgrades and positive critical acclaim Divinity: Original Sin 2 has already received.

Players on the Xbox One can actually get a taste of what the game has to offer now on Xbox Game Preview. Players who also pre-order the game today will be given a code for the “Sir Lora The Squirrel DLC” when the game launches.

A PC version of the Definitive Edition is also in the works by Larian Studios and is expected to release at the same time as the console versions.  Owners of the original PC version will be given access to the Definitive Edition as a free upgrade.

Divinity: Original Sin 2- Definitive Edition will be released on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on August 31st, 2018.
