Divinity: Original Sin 2 Kickstarter Update #48: The Final Update

The Divinity: Original Sin 2 Kickstarter campaign launched just over three years ago to great success. On Friday, the game's Definitive Edition will be released, bringing an end to this era in Larian's history. Swen has decided to mark the occasion with one last Kickstarter update - the last one ever. The update video is filmed in the same hotel room in Seattle where he stayed when the campaign was launched. Most of the video's length, however, is taken up by an amusing short film about the fate of Feedback Billy, the in-game character Larian created to gather feedback for the game's Xbox early access release. Billy doesn't shirk his vocations easily.
Not only is this the last Divinity: Original Sin 2 Kickstarter update, but it's likely the last Kickstarter update for any Larian game, because according to Swen, their next games will almost certainly not be crowdfunded. The Definitive Edition will be released in a big livestreamed blowout at PAX West which will be attended by "a few surprise guests", but it doesn't sound like he's ready to discuss what those next games are just yet. In the meantime, the full changelog for the Definition Edition is available here.
