Divinity: Original Sin 2‘s Definitive Edition will feature an entirely new and improved Arena Mode, which is coming on August 31st to Playstation 4 and Xbox One. Arena Mode contains two game modes, the Classic Deathmatch – where players are pitted against each other until only one remains – and Kill the King – where each team must protect a VIP from death. These modes can be played on 13 maps that have been optimized for tactical turn-based combat and includes five brand new arenas. Each map contains three different types chests that can be looted during the fight, such as a Destruction Coffer that contains destruction scrolls, a Control Coffer that contains control scrolls, or a Source Coffer that contains powerful spells.
Arena Mode will also introduce Mutators, which can give skills or change parameters during these heated battles. An example would be the Movement Mutator giving magical wings to all Heroes, and during Round 7, mutators initiate Sudden Death, which reduces the health of all Heroes to their minimum levels. These Mutators can be customized by the host, alongside other parameters.
