So you're rolling up to that final boss in Divinity: Original Sin 2 yet feel like it's totally out of your league. You've paid full price for a game you can't beat, and you'd rather just get it over with so you can start fresh. Maybe you just want to start the game as a god. Sound familiar? Well, with PC trainers still being a thing, you can totally save edit and cheat your way through one of this year's finest RPGs.
Cheating. It happens. Whether it's your niece attempting to race you before switching the rules mid-sprint and simply proclaiming herself as the winner, or some bearded fellow sniping you through 4 walls and typing 'UAV' into the chat. We've all come across it, felt the effects or dabbled in it ourselves. So what's a little more?
So if you and your team of wizards, archers and undead conjurers are getting blown to pieces on your quest to ascend into a god-like status, rather than accept defeat, you can claim the powers of code manipulation to decimate your foes. By picking up what's known as a Save Editor, you can tweak the parameters of your Divinity: Original Sin 2 save file to give yourself all sorts of cool perks that would either take days to earn yourself or be impossible to manage through a single adventure.
We recently updated our 'Best of PC RPGs' list - Divinity: Original Sin 2 made the cut!
A year after its crowdfunding success, Christian interviewed Larian about Divinity: Original Sin 2
With Larian's Divinity: Original Sin 2 still being fresh-faced, there isn't a whole lot of competition when it comes to save editors at the minute. With such a closed market, it isn't hard to understand that the best offerings require a little compensation to be thrown to the creator. Hosted on CheatHappens, there's a fairly robust Save Editor that's currently locked to those paying the site's monthly 'Premium' fee. Notable perks include ridding the game's inventory weight cap, making armour basically impenetrable, reducing skill cooldowns, or otherwise just filling yourself with stat points.
Still, if it gets you heaps of more entertainment from something you've already bought, then it might be worth a look.Of course, it can be used in a more legitimate way - like to reassign skill points accidentally spent on the wrong attributes, or to get rid of that Blood Rose stacking buff. Be patient, and we're sure some more Save Editors will pop up in time. But for now, the one on CheatHappens seems to be the best.
