Divinity: Original Sin 2 launching three-hour trial on Xbox One this week


Ahead of the full Xbox One and PS4 release in August

Larian Studios’ darn good role-playing game Divinity: Original Sin 2 isn’t coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One until August, but console players will have a chance for a playable sneak peek.

On Xbox One, Larian is releasing a Game Preview build of Divinity: Original Sin 2 on Wednesday, May 16. The first three hours will be freely playable, and folks who opt to pre-order the game will be able to go through the first act, or “approximately 20 hours of adventuring,” per publisher Bandai Namco.

Novel use of the Xbox Game Preview program, I’d say. If you missed this on PC or otherwise just want a solid RPG with co-op support on console, DOS2 is most definitely worth considering.

Oh, and play as a lizard person. For me.
