Divinity: Original Sin 2 - Patch and Hotfix

Divinity: Original Sin 2

Divinity: Original Sin 2 was a gigantic project and the developers don't take a break even after the release, several patches have already been released for the role-playing game and with Divinity: Original Sin 2 Patch v3.0.150.188, dozens of bug fixes and improvements came yesterday.

The performance problems were fixed in some places, missing two-handed weapon skills were added, and the artificial intelligence of some opponents was improved. The developers have also taken on the Quest Journal, so it is now clearer when quests are automatically closed and in the journal you can now also see the experience points for the corresponding entries.

Just a few hours after the patch, the developers accepted the quick feedback from the community and sent another hotfix afterwards.

The patch notes for both updates can be found below:
