Divinity: Original Sin

Divinity: Original Sin description



Divinity Original Sin goes back to the roots of memorable and beloved cRPGs, featuring isometric, party-based gameplay; turn-based combat; gripping dialogues; choice and consequence; enthralling story; profound character and party development; a big interactive world filled with characters and items; free exploration... There is one main goal, and how you get there is completely up to you. Of course, everything is more fun with a friend and so is Original Sin: drop-in, drop-out multiplayer takes care of that, both online and locally.

    Divinity: Original Sin on Mac Mac gamers often get the short end of the stick, but not so with Divinity: Original Sin. Mac and PC    gamers  can play Original Sin together in co-op, and purchasing the                                                                                                         game on Steam gives players the option of which version to download.

    • The game's minimum requirement is OS X 10.8/10.9 with 4GB of memory.
    • The game will run on Intel HD 3000 & 4000 graphics cards, but those should be considered minimum requirements. For integrated chipsets like Intel Graphics, we highly recommend 8GB of memory. The recommended configuration for Divinity on OS X is either Intel Iris (Iris Pro) integrated chipset or NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M and higher video cards.
