Hello everybody!

We have two pieces of exciting news to talk about today.

First, today marks the release of a new Gift Bag: Song of Nature. There are thousands of mods out there but some have proven to be quite popular within our team and we decided to turn them into game features. Full credit for this goes to each and every mod-maker we reached out to for this to come to light. We've tried to do their ideas justice by fully integrating them into the game and developing them further. There is now a special entry in the in-game menu from which you can access all these features and the list will be extended with future Gift Bags, with original content to come.

Secondly, we have some massive news for you. If you happen to own a Nintendo Switch, then you’ll be able to take all your hundreds of hours of gameplay on the go from today. Divinity: Original Sin 2 has just been released on the Nintendo E-Shop, and it comes not only with all of the Gift Bags you’ve enjoyed on Steam, but also cross-save progression between the Switch and Steam.

It works pretty simply: once you buy DOS2 from the E-Shop and load up the game, you’ll be asked if you want to link to Steam. If you choose to, it’ll automatically grab your saves from the elusive and impenetrable Steam cloud (you’ll see how we managed this next week), and your save will be playable on the Switch. It works vice-versa, too. Finished with a game? It’ll upload the save back into the cloud. You’ll need to be connected to the internet as well as Nintendo’s online service, but you’ll need that anyway if you’re venturing into four player coop on the Switch (which is totally possible!)

We’re extremely proud to be able to bring this to the players in cooperation with Nintendo and Valve who helped us plug everything together.

As a reminder, if you're looking for exclusive updates on all things Larian, Divinity and Baldur's Gate 3, make sure you sign up to the Larian Gazette at the following link: Larian Gazette Sign Up

Happy adventures through Rivellon,
Larian Crew

The switch announcement feels so good. That I can continue progress is even better. Wow!
Will there be a retail release? I do like to trade game carts with my GF/friends, but either way we just need to get on this.

Quick question. I just bought the game on Switch and am looking for the local multiplayer option. I can across Hotseat Arena, but I really want to play the campaign cooperatively with a friend on a single console. On your Nintendo eShop page, the following selling point is listed:

  • Supports two player split-screen multiplayer, or online play for up to four friends.


Is Hotseat Arena mode it? Is there in fact no local co-op mode for the Switch version of Divinity: Original Sin 2 Definitive Edition?

That is a mistake on the store page; Nintendo has been contacted, and this should hopefully be fixed soon.

This is great to hear, but that doesn't mean I'll stop asking for potential story based giftbags and ranting theories like a dreamer who's eaten ten barrels of sugar.

Wow, Larian, wow... I'm legit in shock right now.

Literally last night, LITERALLY LAST NIGHT, I was download mods for a new run this weekend. Specifically. I downloaded the more crafting, toggle sprint, free pet pal talent, Fort Joy respec mirror and 8 AP mods... I go to work and come back to find a new patch just added that all in as well as the Switch announcement that is playable right now.

Larian, you're now my favourite developers of all time, everything you do is amazing... I have no words to describe how amazing you all are.

Wow this is surprising.

I actually use the Crafting Overhaul (Elvesat), Free Pet Pal (Lady Cassandra), and Fort Joy Respec Mirror (Kalavinka, LaughingLeader) as some of the few mods I use.

Same. I haven't used many mods at all (I mean except for my usual "I want better shoes!" thing) but there's an interesting overlap with the half dozen or fewer mods I have installed in that it's four of those named.

I mean contrasted with the Bethsoft games where I'd often have hundreds of mods installed and extremely cautiously corralled: as much as I've even bothered to document some of them in detail I'm just left hoping I never have cause to reinstall from scratch again... :o

I like the changes but, at the risk of seeming a bit dim, how do you exit fleetfoot?

I double-dipped and bought both the PC version and the Switch version last night because you did this.

I loved DoS 1 and wanted to play DoS 2, but my lifestyle changed enough where I was rarely at home. This solves the issue nicely.

Thank you, Larian.

Unfortunately, since the system language on Switch does not support Polish, and that is how the language for the game is determined on console, Polish is not available on Switch. I'll check if it is possible a workaround for that may be added at some point.

Hello, first of all let me thank you guys for the countless hours spent in your games. I absolutely love the Divinity series.

I was super happy to see the gift pack, but have to admit I was a bit disappointed when I saw that achievements are disabled when playing with Larian modifications. I still have achievements to do, and I love Divinity Original Sin 2 so much that I want 100% completion on it! Can you please consider curating the mods that you have selected for Larian modifications, and deciding if they upset the game balance too much or not? For example, the +8 AP mod absolutely makes the game easier, so it should disable achievements. I haven't tried Herb garden and the new item recipes, but it would be great if there were SOME mods that we could enable without disabling achievements.

I think that Larian approved mods could be a great addition to the game and I'd definitely be more interested in trying mods if there were some that didn't disable achis! By the time I'm at 100%, I hope you guys will have released the next game in the series! ;)

Keep on being awesome!

I only registred to ask some questions for the Mods :D
Because i really love this game and the community which make the game to what it is.
There are so many cool and nice working mods out there for this game.
So here is my Question, do you tink it is doable, that we can use the steam Workshop mods on steam?
Or maybe you can make the class mods useable? There are so many nice useable class mods out there.
Or does anybody knows? I am so excited and i will buy the game again to play it with my friends on the switch :D
Hope that there will be many mods which will come time after time. This would be so great :D
We played the game on PC and on PS4. But more on the PC because of all these mods. Thisway it would be really really cool :D
So guys, cya then and keep playing :D
