New Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition trailer shows off split-screen co-op

Divinity: Original Sin is getting split-screen support in its upcoming console release.

Couch co-op was covered in an earlier trailer, but this new one goes into more specific detail.

The Enhanced Edition (which has been designed for consoles, but is also coming to PC as a free update for owners of the original) can be played with a friend or partner on the couch next to you.

As the trailer shows, if you choose to go off in different directions the screen will dynamically split, allowing you to explore different areas of a dungeon, or even pursue multiple objectives at once.

Because there are a lot of decisions to be made in Divinity, there’s a democracy system built in, and on occasion your avatars will have a discussion with each player getting to choose their own responses.

Beyond this, the Enhanced Edition of Divinity: Original Sin is also sharpening the graphics, adding new quests, and cleaning up the story. It is due for release in October on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (hopefully we’ll have an exact date soon).

Meanwhile, there are six days left to back the Divinity: Original Sin 2 Kickstarter, although it already met its target on the day it launched.
