Divinity: Original Sin 2 Pokes Fun at Loot Boxes with Free Gift Bags

A new update promises more character customization options.

Larian Studios has patched something new into Divinity: Original Sin 2 today. As part of today's update for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One versions of the game, Larian has added Gift Bags. These gift bags contain more character customization options for players, including new faces, hairstyles, and facial features.

"We have more Gift Bags planned for this year, and the treats inside will continue to enrich your adventures in Rivellon. We will have more information about future Gift Bags for you soon, and we can’t wait to see what you do with them," said the studio in the patch notes.

Players can change their characters' looks via the Magic Mirror aboard your ship, the Lady Vengeance. Speaking of your ship, the patch also fixes some issues with fast-traveling to it.

The Gift Bags are completely free. Larian stresses that these aren't loot boxes because "Gift Bags are filled with gifts, not boxes filled with loot." While this first gift bag is aimed at character creation assets, the next gift bad release is focused on the modding community. There's no timetable on the second release. The gift bags were developed in collaboration with Polish studios Fool's Theory and Anshar Studios.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 was one of my favorite games back in 2017, and it ended up on our list of the 25 Best Steam Games. Last year marked the release of Divinity: Original Sin 2 Definitive Edition on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, bringing the excellent title to those platforms, with additions and tweaks. And don't worry Switch owners, there are plans to bring the game to your platform as well, according to an interview with Shacknews.
