Divinity 2: Developer's Cut now on Steam
Look at your library and you'll see Divinity 2: Developer's Cut - It has the dev tools, commentary, artwork etc.. however, they made it a separate dl instead of a patch.

Pretty generous that they gave it to existing owners for free. Weird how you can still buy "Dragon Knight Saga" at twice the price as the Developer's Cut.

Actually the whole Anthology is cheaper than DKS alone right now. Since both the DC & the anthology have just added to Steam, I'm guessing this is a mistake & the DKS store page will soon be pulled. I wonder if Valve would be willing to remove DKS from my library now that they've handed out the Director's Cut? It seems very redundant to have both. Either that or replace the DC entry with a patch for DKS.

So now there are Director Cut 10€ Ego Draconis (seems the same) 20€ and Dragon Knight Saga 40€. Does the Director Cut include all the things the DKS have??? Weird
Wait, even weirder: director's cut doesn't include Spanish (my language)????

No. D2 Developer's Cut is remastered D2 Ego Draconis + FoV (aka DKS) + developer's console. People who buy DC also get some extras, like new music, but those of us who get it for free for owning DKS apparently do not. But the only difference from DKS in the game itself is the console. DKS & DC are so similar you can use the same save files (although I'd test this with one of your older saves first to be sure it works on your system). As I predicted, Steam has pulled the DKS store page. Hopefully they'd be willing to do the same with the DKS entry in my library, since it's essentially the same game apart from the console.

The game itself is the same. If you download the Developer's Cut, you have the option to play DKS or a version with the Developer Mode (cheat menu) enabled. If you have not downloaded either, then you should certainly get D2DC. If you have DKS already, and are near a download limit, or something, then there probably isn't a great need to get D2DC right away (usually it is better to play through a game once normally before using too many cheats, anyway).

I wish the developer's cut would have remplaced the older version... I now have twice the same game on my librairie. Not very practical, like my librairie is not cluttered already...

This is just like the GTAs who show twice for MAC and PC versions. This is getting impractical for end users with a lot of games.

Too bad Valve won't trust us with the possibility to rename or remove our games from our librairies as we see fit.

This is actually my number 1 gripe with Valve's Steam client - I need the ability to permanently remove games from my library. I have had to create a category for them (lots of betas) and it really adds to the clutter.

I'm at a point now where I have the option to install either Divinity 2: Director's Cut or Dragon Knight Saga, and reading through these posts don't actually help me know which one I should be installing, since I obviously don't want both on my system. This is a truly underrated game, but I think its delivery through Steam has been awkward and confusing. I agree the DC should have been added as a patch. But which should I be installing? Does it matter? (I do not want nor need cheat codes).

Install the Developer's Cut version. It is the most up to date release, though other than a hotfix for an issue with inverting the Y axis in dragon form, I don't think there is much difference from DKS. If you run into any trouble you would at least have the option to switch to the version with the cheat codes (and some of them are cool to play around with after you're done the game).

Appreciate the response, Raze, that's what I'll do then.
