The critically acclaimed PC RPG Divinity: Original Sin II is coming to consoles this summer, but Xbox One owners will have a chance to play a portion of it early. Bandai Namco announced that the first three hours of the game will be playable for free via Xbox Game Preview beginning May 16.
On top of the free trial, those who purchase Divinity: Original Sin II Definitive Edition on Xbox One will get early access to the entire first act of the game--approximately 20 hours of content by Bandai Namco's estimates--ahead of its launch. Players will also be able to carry the progress they make in the First Act over to the full game upon its release.
Bandai Namco has yet to announce an exact release date for Divinity: Original Sin II Definitive Edition, but the game is slated to arrive on both Xbox One and PS4 this August. The publisher also hasn't announced if a similar early access period will be offered for PS4 owners.
Bandai Namco says the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Original Sin II boast "a user interface tailored for console." Like the PC release, the game will also support four-player online co-op on consoles, as well as two-player split-screen co-op.
Divinity: Original Sin II launched to widespread acclaim on PC in September 2017. The game earned a rare 10/10 in GameSpot's Divinity: Original Sin II review, with critic Brett Todd calling it "one of the most captivating role-playing games ever made." The title also took the No. 5 spot on our Best Game of 2017 list.
