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.

As much as I love my Nintendo Switch, it’s safe to say that it has some technical limitations when compared to my PC. So earlier this month, when Larian announced that it was bringing its massive RPG, Divinity: Original Sin 2, to the platform, I was a little sceptical.
Divinity: Original Sin 2 landed just over two years ago, and an extensive set of free content updates have only improved what was already one of the best PC games of 2017. Developer Larian doesn’t plan to stop expanding the game, either. More in-game additions are coming, and the studio has plans to build things outside the game in a “massive” way.
The makers of the Divinity games are teasing something big. Larian Studios’ website has been taken over by a giant roman numeral for ‘three,’ prompting PC role-playing game fans the world over to rejoice over the possibility of Divinity: Original Sin 3. That’s the most obvious possibility, but it’s not the only one – there are a couple of other third games Larian could be making.
Creating a bigger, better story that showed off their game’s reactive world was one of the main goals for the developers of Divinity: Original Sin 2. Larian hired a team of nine writers to create it, thinking that would be plenty to tackle the task. But between writing and scripting, Original Sin 2’s main story wasn’t complete until just ten months before the game shipped.
There are two things everyone loves: gifts, and Larian Studios’ Divinity: Original Sin 2. Now we can get those things all at once thanks to a set of ‘gift bags’ which will come to the game over the course of the year. These are essentially just small, free updates adding little new features and bits of content to make your further adventures in D:OS2 a little nicer next time around.
