Larian Studios has released a new update for Divinity: Original Sin II. The update adds the first of several gift bags planned to drop in the 2017 computer RPG, as well as some bug fixes.
"Working in cooperation with Fool's Theory and Anshar Studios, we have created new visual options for your characters," Larian Studios wrote in a blog post. "There are new faces for each race, more hairstyles, and additional facial features for you to use when creating a new character. You can also respec your existing characters using these new options by using the Magic Mirror aboard the Lady Vengeance."
The developer has more gifts bags planned for 2019, each of which contains "treats" that will "continue to enrich your adventures in Rivellon." Larian Studios shared no more information other than that, but promises additional details will be available "soon." As stated before, the rest of the update deals with bug fixes. The most notable of these addresses the issue with fast-travelling to the Lady Vengeance as well as the bug that causes Source to be incorrectly absorbed by Sir Lora. The full patch notes in the update is outlined below.

Divinity: Original Sin II is one of the few games we've given a 10/10, and it went on to be included in our list of top 10 games for 2017. In our Divinity: Original Sin II review, Brett Todd wrote, "From lonely farmhouses through pitched battles with gods in far-flung dimensions, Divinity: Original Sin II is one of the most captivating role-playing games ever made in both its original and Definitive incarnations, with the latter proving that even the most complicated role-players can be ported successfully to gamepad-limited consoles. This immaculately conceived and emotion-wrought fantasy world, topped by brilliant tactical combat, make it one of the finest games of recent years, and it remains an instant classic in the pantheon of RPG greats."
