As one of the most acclaimed games of 2017, in just over two weeks players on PS4 and Xbox One will finally get to experience Divinity: Original Sin 2 in the form of its upcoming Definitive Edition. While both platforms will enjoy the benefits of new content and enhanced visuals, the more PC-like experience of integrating mods may be on the horizon for the console iteration of the game according to the studio, though its arrival at this time is unknown.
Speaking with DualShockers, Larian Studios product manager Kieron Kelly shared several details on the upcoming Divinity: Original Sin 2: Definitive Edition, which brings over the acclaimed 2017 CRPG to PS4 and Xbox One owners later this month for the first time, alongside several notable updates and enhancements incorporated since the release of the base game last fall.
On the subject of mod support for the console version of the game (and in our original question, specifically that for the Xbox One version of the game), Kelly explained that Larian Studios has explored the potential to bring mods over to Divinity: Original Sin 2 on consoles and that it has not only been “looked into,” but that support for mods has been “not ruled out just yet.”
While Kelly explained that mod support is something that won’t be a feature that will be immediately available with the Definitive Edition‘s release later this month, it’s clear that Larian has at least expressed interest in seeing how to bring mod support–something that the PC community for the game has already been heavily involved in–over to the console versions of the game, though it’s unclear at this time when that might be able to happen.
Divinity: Original Sin 2 is available now on PC, while the game’s upcoming Definitive Edition will be arriving for PS4 and Xbox One owners on August 31st, 2018. Stay tuned for our upcoming full interview with Larian Studio’s Kieron Kelly for more details on what to expect from the game’s upcoming console release later this month. If you have yet to pick up the game, there is still time to pre-order it through Amazon now.
