Someone I follow started to play a Divinity game and I decided now was the time I wanted to give this a shot so I thought I'd go and buy it from steam, however, in doing so I've run into a bit of an issue. What version is the version I should be buying, or rather, what is the most recent version?

I can see

  • Divinity: Original Sin 2

but I can also see:

  • Beyond Divinity
  • Divine Divinity
  • Divinity II: Developer's Cut
  • Divinity: Original Sin - Enhanced Edition
  • Divinity: Original Sin 2 - Definitive Edition
  • Divinity: Original Sin 2 - Divine Ascension

My question is what version is the one I should be buying and what is the difference between them all?


Divinity is a series of video games. Of those, Divinity: Original Sin 2 is the latest entry.

  • Divine Divinity is the first game in the series, an action RPG that was released in 2002
  • Beyond Divinity is also an action RPG, released in 2004, which takes place 20 years after the events of Divine Divinity
  • Divinity II is another action RPG, released in 2009, and takes place about a thousand years after Divine Divinity
  • Divinity: Original Sin is a prequel to Divine Divinity and, unlike the original, uses a turn-based combat system. The game was released in 2014 and takes place thousands of years before Divine Divinity
  • Divinity: Original Sin II is the latest game in the series, a turn-based RPG released in 2017 that takes place four years after Beyond Divinity.

  • Divinity: Original Sin II - Definitive Edition is a free update to Divinity: Original Sin II, not a separate re-release. This update mostly consists of small balance changes, some additional bits of lore, and more voiced lines.

  • Divinity: Original Sin II - Divine Ascension is "DLC" for Divinity: Original Sin II, consisting of digital soundtrack, art books, and maps.
  • Additonally, Divinity: Dragon Commander is another game in the series, a mix of strategy and action RPG released in 2013.

    I'd add that the recent games that are well renowned are Divinity: Original Sin 1 and 2. The 2 is a clear improvement on the first but lot of people would tell you that it is still worth it to play D:OS1 first.

Since you asked about Steam, this is the complete version: Divinity: Original Sin 2 - Definitive_Edition.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 - Divine_Ascension this is only concept arts and soundtrack DLC for the game, it doesn't add any gameplay content.

Other things you mentioned are previous games in series:

  • Divine Divinity (2002);

  • Beyond Divinity (2004);

  • Divinity II: Developer's Cut (2009);

  • Divinity: Original Sin - Enhanced Edition (2014).

All of games in series are also included in this bundle DIVINITY: ORIGINAL SIN 2 - ETERNAL EDITION
