The turn-based RPG Divinity: Original Sin is scheduled for release at the end of this month on PC, and the great news is that it doesn’t come packaged alone.
Divinity: Original Sin already comes with an editor, but it was announced yesterday by developer Larian Studios that it will also come with a sample module titled Cow Simulator 2014.
Following the success of Goat Simulator and Bear Simulator, Cow Simulator 2014 has the potential to be huge. Originally it was designed as a mod for would-be creators, allowing users to play as a cow while completing quests or fights in the Divinity arena. But far from being a simple example of what can be achieved with the level editor, Cow Simulator 2014 goes so far as to include 4-player co-op, in order to create the “greatest cow simulator ever produced.”
It is, essentially, a full-fledged game in its own right.
On top of this, the Divinity Engine Toolkit will also allow you to create your own single player and multiplayer adventures – much like Bioware’s classic Neverwinter Nights – modify the main campaign and game terrain, create your own behaviors and scripts, and then export everything to the Steam Workshop with a single click. According to the devs, a lot of work has gone into making the modding experience as user-friendly as possible.
