Game News - posted by Infinitron on Mon 15 September 2014, 22:11:01Tags: Divinity: Original Sin; Larian Studios; Swen Vincke
Today's Divinity: Original Sin Kickstarter update, the first since the game's release back in June, announces the release of the long-expected companion update.
Today, we're launching a content-heavy update to D:OS players, featuring two totally new companions, each ready (if you play your cards right) to help save Rivellon. Also included in the newest update is a big quality-of-life improvement and another coat of polish.
Below, Swen discusses more about the added content, as well as future updates and what the team's been up to since our last update (hint: Divinity: Original Sin isn't the only game we're working on!).

As promised, we're ready to launch two more companions into Rivellon, both of which you can meet in Cyseal. Bairdotr, a curious and loyal ranger, has gotten herself into some trouble at the Legion barracks, while the silent rogue Wolgraff has found himself a nice hustle stealing coins from the wishing well in the Cyseal hinterlands (accessible through the graveyard tunnel).
If you convince one or both to join your party, you'll learn more about their histories and missions for the future.
Download "The Bear and the Burgler" DLC via Steam, or simply update your game on GOG to receive the new content. Note: The new companions will appear in Cyseal once you start a new game after downloading the update.
Follow the Dialogue: A significant improvement for co-op players
It's no secret that the old system for following other players' dialogues in co-op needed a makeover; fortunately, the latest update will do just that.
Now, instead of reading lengthy dialogues displayed over your teammate's head or in the journal, you'll be able to see the conversation in its own dialogue box with the toggle of a button.
This certainly will not be our last update on Divinity: Original Sin. We're still working on a slew of new skills and a variety of difficulty modes to ramp up the challenge-- keep an eye out for those in the coming weeks!
