‘Divinity: Original Sin 2’ Free DLC & New Graphic Novel

2 min read

Larian Studios has announced “The Four Relics Of Rivellon,” the next free Gift Bag DLC available today for Divinity: Original Sin 2, the critically acclaimed RPG that landed on Nintendo Switch last year with a 94 Metacritic rating.

The studio also announced the graphic novel Divinity: Original Sin – Godwoken,” an original story leading up to the events of Divinity: Original Sin 2 from the perspective of Rivellon’s six godwoken: Ifan, Lohse, Red Prince, Sebille, Fane and Beast. Journey to never-before seen parts of Rivellon through over 300 full-color pages. Discover more about the origins of the godwoken, including Red Prince’s life as the crown jewel of the Forgotten City, Ifan’s experience as the Divine’s right-hand man, and the lives of Sebille, Beast and Lohse up to the moments of the ill-fated Kraken attack.

This beautifully printed graphic novel will be available as both a Limited Edition hardcover and Standard Edition softcover. It is available to pre-order at shop.larian.com.

“The Four Relics of Rivellon” is the fifth free DLC drop to be added to all versions of Divinity: Original Sin 2 across PlayStation®4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. It is the largest Gift Bag for the game so far, adding brand-new quest lines, stories and enemies. It has been developed in collaboration with Anshar Studios and Fool’s Theory.

Players can set out on a new adventure, featuring new voice recording and narration, as well as dastardly new fights and the Undead Dragon boss. Players will be rewarded for completing these new quests with four armor sets scattered all over Rivellon and imbued with magical properties.

The four sets of armor include:

  • Captain Armor: A set of armor that can dominate the minds of those around it. Each piece also boosts Lucky Charm, Persuasion and Bartering.
  • Vulture Armor: A light set of armor that, when complete, gives the wearer permanent vulture-like wings. Full set enhances range and damage dealt from higher ground.
  • Contamination Armor: An ancient set of armor created from magic thought lost long ago. Each piece offers resistance to poison, and the entire set grants immunity to poison along with a special ability to spawn exploding spores that will damage enemies in combat.
  • Devourer Armor: Said to make its wearer almost invincible. In combat, the armor will mark a certain target in range. Any attacks on this target cannot miss and will deal extra damage.

As ever, the contents of each Gift Bag are accessible via the in-game menu, where players can independently enable or disable each individual feature. These are compatible with all prior Gift Bags (“Beauty Salon” and “Song Of Nature”), and players are free to enable as many or as few as they’d like. 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.
