Original Sin - Bring on the Cows
Larian Studios have announced in a press release that the Divinity Engine Toolkit, comes with a cow simulator, just as an example of how you can create mods for the game.


Cow Simulator 2014 announced by Larian Studios, comes with Divinity Engine Toolkit

Larian Studios announced today that the editor for Divinity: Original Sin, will be available as part of the Early Access beta on June 26th.

Not only is the Divinity: Original Sin editor the first multiplayer game editor since Neverwinter Nights, it comes with a sample module called Cow Simulator 2014.
Cow Simulator 2014 is perhaps the finest cow simulation ever released. It serves as an example mod for would-be creators and permits users to play as a cow (even in co-op with up to 4 players) and complete a quest or fight in the arena.

The Divinity Engine Toolkit allows players to:

Make new adventures that you can play in singleplayer or multiplayer
You can modify the main campaign or create your own
Manipulate terrain and edit existing models and textures
Write your own stories and dialogs
Create behaviors and scripts with easy-to-use scripting language
Alter existing or add new skills, stats and spells
1-click export to Steam Workshop
Add and manage your mods via Steam Workshop or inside the game
More information.

A cow simulator…I've been waiting for this all my life…*sniffle* :'(

Myrthos June 24th, 2014 13:54

What weapons could a cow possibly wield? A cow bell of mass destruction?

crpgnut June 24th, 2014 14:34

Holy Cow! I wasn't expecting this ;) It is an udderly ridiculous idea :D

Pladio June 24th, 2014 14:50

Reminds me of the cow level in Diablo 2 :D

Arhu June 24th, 2014 14:51

Boy, the game isn't even out yet and they are already milking it …

zahratustra June 24th, 2014 15:33

You guys are SO corny :lol:

you June 24th, 2014 15:47

Well at least in name it is probably making fun of the recently released goat simulator.

you June 24th, 2014 15:50

btw there is a post on the larian boards tht the press rlease was in error and premature; though they are doing a twitch stream on thursday to prsent the eidtor.

Myrthos June 24th, 2014 16:07

Updated the newsbit accordingly.

Update 2014-06-24 - 16:05 CET

Apparently the press release mentioned wasn't what they want to send out. Here is Swen's comment on it:
Somehow a draft of the press release got released, and so the wrong information spread. We didn't really plan on releasing on cow simulator but now it looks like we'll have no choice http://www.larian.com/forums/images/…fault/wink.gif Stream is on thursday - bring your notepads, it's going to be a real tutorial.
The stream he mentions is on twitch.tv on the 26th of June at 18.00 CET.

I'm just surprised it isn't a sheep simulator.

rjshae June 24th, 2014 17:11

How moo-ving…

Ovenall June 24th, 2014 17:16

I herd about this last night. Cattle teach 'em to release documents so fast just because they cud. Ruminant has it that they were cowed into doing this by fans.

Fluffyhotep June 24th, 2014 18:27

There already exists a 'Cow Petting Simulator 2014' (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJVvYiDYqIQ).


I do hope Larian won't get involved in an endless copyright battle over the name.
Other than that, I think Larian's cow simulator will beat the older title in terms of graphics, animation, story, voice acting, soundtrack and above all: Choices and Consequences.

It's going to be the Battle of the Bovine Sims

There already exists one. It's called Sven, it has many sequels and honestly I'm unsure why it wasn't ported on phones as it'd be the most popular phonegame ever. Instead some new Sven game was made for iOS and it's… Crap.
More about it:

That's a sheep stimulator joxer :]

Cow Simulator 2014 is perhaps the finest cow simulation ever released.
That is pure awesomeness. :)

Lurking Grue June 24th, 2014 20:47

Cowabunga! Excellent news, can hardly wait to get my hands on the editor/toolkit and see what it can do (quite a lot, apparently). Also, less than a week until D:OS is finally released - and there was much rejoicing!

TheMadGamer June 24th, 2014 21:39

Just keeping my eyes shut while in a fetal position humming softly while waiting for the release date to arrive…

There used to be a bug in a NWN mod which could turn you into a cow. It happened to me the first time I played with our regular online group in NWN several years ago; it was hillarious!!
