GHENT, 2019 - Order & Magic is the moniker given to the latest Gift Bag DLC drop for Divinity: Original Sin 2, the critically acclaimed RPG that recently landed on Switch with a 94 Metacritic rating. Featuring cross-save support with Steam, players can enjoy the PCGamer #1 adventure from their desktop, and then continue on with their Switch. 

Order & Magic is the third free DLC drop to be patched into all versions of Divinity: Original Sin 2, across PS4, Xbox One, Switch, Mac and PC. As ever, the contents of each Gift Bag are accessible via the in-game menu, where you can independently enable or disable each individual feature. Of course, these are compatible with all prior Gift Bags (Beauty Salon and Song Of Nature), and you’re free to enable as many or as few as you'd like

What's more, we're pleased to announce that you're now able to invite friends to your game via the new friend invite feature on the Switch. Just pick the friend you'd like to invite, and if they accept (accept your invitations, friends!) they'll join your party whether you're just starting out, or continuing your adventure. 

Gift Bag 3 includes:

Pet Power

Pet Power greatly enhances the summoning class and its infusion spells. With this feature, you can cast infusion spells on all available summons, not just your own Incarnate. Each summons receives different skills depending on the base elemental infusion type.

Combat Randomiser

When entering combat, one or more random enemies will receive one of the new special statuses created specially for this feature. Think you know how a particular fight is going to go down? Not any more! This will change everything you thought you knew about combat, with each battle presenting a fresh new challenge.

Nine Lives (Black Cat+)

Transforms the Black Cat into a follower. Once rescued, a whistle will appear in your inventory. You can use this if your cat gets lost or if you want to change who it follows.

Improved Organisation

Find a collection of special bags that allow you to better (and automatically) organise your inventory.

Sourcerous Sundries

In each major hub, you can now find a mysterious vendor selling exotic and potent artifacts. These artifacts can upgrade a character’s gear with immense power, bringing them up to the players' current level.

Hagglers

Tired of forgetting to switch to your 'haggling' character when talking to traders? Now the reputation and skill of your whole party can help you wrangle the best prices!

Please note that once enabled, these features will roll over to your saves on PC, or vice versa on Switch if you have cloud save transfers enabled.  These new features come free and are automatically downloaded to the game.
