Founder Of Larian Studios Teases Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition For Linux

Posted by , | Views: 14,341
We have been waiting too long for this to come, but Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition has been shown off on twitter for Linux.

Hope this will put some of our Linux players fears to rest. It exists and it's not that far in the future anymore! pic.twitter.com/2LRN3Lk7s4

I'm still not very amused by how long it has taken them, but if they deliver it on the same day the upgraded Windows & Mac versions are due like they claim they will, then maybe we can put it behind us.

They will be Kickstarting Divinity: Original Sin 2 this month, and I hope people have learnt a lesson here. If you Kickstart anything, prepare to wait, and prepare for Linux delays. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

I'm not sure if I'm prepared for yet another >50 hours RPG...! X)

I know this attitude is not right but I hope this studio will fail. They lied to people who paid for this game on Kickstarter and they never stopped to lie. This game was meant to be released "just after Mac version". Mac version had day one release, Divinity Original Sin is not on Linux over 15 months after release on Mac.

I really admire honesty and clear rules. They do not provide it. Sorry for such a comment here, but this is how I feel regarding this studio.

I'm not saying that I will never buy this game, but I do not feel like buying this game will support Linux gaming so I will get it on some cheap sale.

Just treat Kickstarter and early access as scams, and things will make more sense.

If you backed it, you can vote for day one Linux support for the next Divinity kickstarter pledge rewards.

Stop being an idiot. They didn't lie about anything. They underestimated how much work the Linux version was going to be. Everybody who donated for the Linux version can still ask for a refund.

This is a cyrillic interface in there, who is working on that port ?

BillNyeTheBlackGuyStop being an idiot.
@BillNyeTheBlackGuy One step too far - I didn't offend you, so you shouldn't do it either. I have my opinion - I just said it. If you don't like - comment my opinion. But never offend someone.

Anyway I will reply to your comment where you're saying something that makes sence:

Do you really think that this is ok to get this kind of credit where someone pays you money, you keep it for over a year and then you give him back money (without an extra money because of the interest) because you didn't provide a product or service? I think this is just sad that they did this kind of trick. And I don't think it was "underestimation". It was super low priority and lying just to our faces and laughing during this lies.

OMG a kickstarted game did not deliver on all its promises. SHOCKING... not...

It looks like we do have to push them quite a bit for more information, but they are willing to respond. I asked for this confirmation of proof several hours ago here and Swen honored it with that Twitter post.

Yes, we've waited absurdly long, but it looks like they really are trying to fulfill that promise now. While I am wary of the 2nd kickstarter still, at the very least Larian took one step forward today in proving to us their efforts.
