Black cat! Haggling improvements! More!
Larian Studios has been gripped with the spirit of generosity once more, and has tossed another sack of free Divinity: Original Sin 2 DLC at all players on PC, Mac, Switch, PS4, and Xbox One.
This latest round of free DLC for the excellent RPG comes in the form of a new Gift Bag offering, and Larian is calling this one Order & Magic – following on from Beauty Salon and Song Of Nature – mostly because it focusses on, yes, order and magic.
Larian’s latest Gift Bag includes six new features, and the developer notes that each one can be disabled or enabled individually, depending on whether you want to bask in their additive glory, or simply stick with the vanilla experience.
Those looking for a new furry friend can now transform the Black Cat into a follower once rescued, and the new Pet Power feature lets players cast infusion spells on all available summons, with each receiving different skills depending on the base elemental infusion type.
Elsewhere, there’s a new combat randomiser function, which assigns a new special status type to one or more random enemies during a scrap in order to mix things up a bit, and it’s now possible to find special bags that enable better and automatic sorting of inventories.
Larian’s third Gift Bag DLC also brings a change to haggling, meaning that the reputation and skill of a player’s entire party now influences the prices they’ll pay for goods, rather than the haggling skills of an individual. And rounding things out, a mysterious vendor has been added to each major hub, selling “exotic and potent artifacts”. These, handily, can be used to upgrade a character’s gear to the player’s current level.
Although that wraps it up for Gift Bag 3’s all-platform freebies, today’s update also brings a new friend invite system to Switch. Details can be found on Larian’s forum.
