It's all go for the Divinity: Original Sin 2 community. A new update for the game just dropped. The update contains a new Gift Bag and some exciting news for Switch and PC gamers.
The new Gift Bag is called Song of Nature. Developer Larian Studios says this is a collection of some of the most popular and enduring mods for Divinity: Original Sin 2. The devs saw the mods and decided to integrate them officially into the game. There's lots of stuff on offer here including a new Sprint option, an increase in base maximum Action Points, and a new Herb Garden feature. You can check out the full feature list for Song of Nature right here. Larian says there are more Gift Bags coming which will introduce even more features to the game.
Next, some good news for Switch gamers. If you buy Divinity: Original Sin 2 and you've got a copy of the game on Steam, you can enjoy cross-saves between the two platforms. It's a simple process: just buy the game on Switch and you'll be asked if you want to sync with Steam. If you choose yes, it'll grab your saves from the Steam cloud (naturally, you'll need to have uploaded them) and you'll be able to access them on Switch. When you save on Switch, your save will automatically sync with Steam. You will need to have an active internet connection and a Nintendo Switch Online membership.
Last but not least, the new update fixes a bunch of miscellaneous bugs. These include a Magic Mirror multiplayer crash and some small UI issues. It's all about the new Gift Bag and those juicy Switch cross-saves, though. Excuse us while we go waste another few hundred hours on this game.
You can grab Divinity: Original Sin 2 on Nintendo Switch right now.
