Haven't played around with it yet (currently downloading the 8.9 GB update) but FYI it's free for anyone that bought the "vanilla" OS:2. Tons of improvements and additions and a new DLC included.

The only bad news is that it isn't compatible with the existing save files so you'd have to start a new game for it.

There's also a new party member available :)

    Yup. That's always wise, especially with refreshed older game.

    It's free for us that already have it though, which is a thing Larian does and that generates a lot of positive press for them.

    Contrast that to the Skyrim refresh that was only a free upgrade if you had bought all their DLC.

    Larian doesn't nickle and dime that way: you got the original? You get the new one gratis.

    Apparently I already own it on GOG.  I need a better inventory system.

    I bought it again for the ps4 version, the console port is pretty nice so far.

    I just started a new character myself, playing a Metamorph.  Excited about this definitive version.

    However, it's causing a squeeze on my time between this, Prey, and WoW.  Once I get a Horde character to 120, I likely will drop the WoW unfortunately.  The zones are great and all, but the end-game grind is wayyyyy too segmented now.  Chests don't drop anything other than War Resources, and spreading the world quests over 6 zones just makes it a huge headache with regards to grinding certain rewards from WQs (such as gear).

    So I'm going to likely transition this into my rotation.  I really need to power through Prey and finish it up.

    Did the install size shrink at all? I was reading a thread that said old patches had bloated the original game and they have cleaned that up.

    The upgrade install was a bit of a nightmare for me, TBH. It kept jamming at the verification stage and totally froze my computer at one point. There are a lot of threads about people having a hard time with the upgrade so it wasn't just me.

    I ended up totally uninstalling the original D:OS2 and downloaded the whole thing fresh - it was a 34 GB DL  as opposed to an 8.4 GB upgrade but at least it worked fine doing that.

    They didn't release it as a separate game like they did with D:OS1 enhanced. Definitive shares many files with the original and it just appears on Steam as one game. It's only after you launch it that you get a new pop-up that lets you select original or definitive.

    Thanks for explaining that. I found the game itself is smaller than the 34GB. I did some more reading on reddit and I guess you can delete the install folder of the version you don't want to play and recover a lot of space. If you want it back you must "verify install" and do the download.

    I still want to play it but after my Pillars play through I've dropped this game down on the list a ways. That last third chapter really burnt me out.

    I'll probably pick it up if it goes on holiday sale though. I enjoyed D:OS a lot and found the setting and lore clicked with me a lot more than Torment or Pillars did.

    I'm gonna wait till the mods get updated for this version before I do another playthrough. I really enjoy playing a 6 party team rather than the default 4.
