GHENT, BELGIUM – Sept. 4, 2019 – Larian Studios is excited to announce that Metacritic’s “Must-Play RPG” Divinity: Original Sin 2 - Definitive Edition is coming to the Nintendo Switch system.

Originally released to critical acclaim on PC, Divinity: Original Sin 2 received a 93 Metacritic rating, and is currently one of only a handful of games to receive a 10/10 from GameSpot. It was also awarded a BAFTA Games Award for the multiplayer category and was recently named number one in the PC Gamer Top 100 list, updated for 2019.

Starting today, fans can begin their adventure on the Nintendo Switch and enjoy near-limitless RPG freedom, wherever they are in the world. For players who wish to continue their adventures on the go, Divinity: Original Sin 2 - Definitive Edition features first-of-its-kind cross-saves between Nintendo Switch systems and Steam on PC, which means players can upload and download their save files to continue playing on the go.

Join the battle for Divinity in a world that reacts to who you are and what you do. Adventure as a flesh-eating Elf or an imperial Lizard. Play as a mighty Dwarf, or lead your party as an Undead, risen from the grave!

■ Choose your race and origin. Choose from 6 unique origin characters with their own backgrounds and quests, or create your own hero as a Human, Lizard, Elf, Dwarf, or Undead. All choices have consequences.

■ Unlimited freedom to explore and experiment. Go anywhere, talk to anyone, and interact with everything! Kill any NPC without sacrificing your progress and speak to every animal. Even ghosts may be hiding a secret or two…!

■ The next generation of turn-based combat. Blast your opponents with elemental combinations. Use height to your advantage. Master over 200 skills in 12 skill schools. But beware - the game’s AI 2.0 is our most devious invention to date!

● Up to four-player online cooperative gameplay for the entire game, spanning over 100 hours of award-winning narrative.

The Switch version launches alongside the second Gift Bag for the game: free DLC that includes content for new and existing players, on all existing platforms. This content is periodically patched into the game at no extra cost, with more to come over the year.

Building upon new character customization options released in Gift Bag 1 earlier this year, Gift Bag 2, called Song of Nature, includes:

Crafter's Kit

Plenty of new recipes and unique items to craft!

Endless Runner

Fort Joy Magic Mirror

Manifests a Magic Mirror in the Arena of Fort Joy, along with a new Character Creation level. This allows you to respec before moving on to the next act of the game.

8 Action Points

Increases the base maximum Action Points of hero characters to 8.

Herb Gardens

Plant your own herb garden! Take any herb and combine it with a bucket to create a seedling. Then place your seedling in the ground and watch it grow.
