Multiplayer is key to the Divinity: Original Sin experience. Maybe not essential, since I did play through the game once on my own. But the chaos of trying to navigate a world alongside a friend—putting barrels in their inventory to slow them down, handing off spells and other essential items, coordinating attacks—elevated a rather ho-hum story into something special.
And now you can do it from your couch. (Or whatever you sit on.)
Today Larian confirmed that split-screen co-op will come to upcoming sequel Divinity: Original Sin II. Looks like it’s only two players per screen, but a full four-person party can be formed on just two different screens if you want to get together for a grand ol’ LAN party.
