Now that Larian’s 2017 RPG masterpiece Divinity: Original Sin II has made the leap to the Nintendo Switch, you’ve got the option to jump into adventures in the land of Rivellon on the go. Thanks to its Steam cross-save feature, you can even pick up where you left off on your PC, saving precious time by not needing to start again from scratch. It’s an exciting step towards portability for players – and it looks like it’s part of Larian’s preparation for what the future of videogaming might hold.
