That's really cool.

They are companions or you can play as them either way. In the first area, you'll meet some of them to recruit as companions.

I loved the first game. I haven't touched the Early Access version in my Steam library, but I have been looking at it longingly. This has been my most anticipated game ever since I backed it.

Yeah I was wondering about that. The some of the DM videos were about taking a party through a specific D&D adventure module. I don't now if they'll be able to include it in the game or not. That would be cool.

They showed it off with a D&D beginners module that Wizards gave them permission to use, but at the time they still didn't know if that permission would extend to including it in the final game or not.

Great job on the OT!

And it's already at 2 pages. I remember when I had to make Larian game OTs and keep them going together with a handful of posters. Their success is so awesome to see.

Hopefully they are in a desert where a constant wind storm robs you of your action points, that would make the giant spider experience all the more sweet.

Oh... wait.

I'm really interested an undead build but intimidated by the effect that will have on the game in terms of difficulty.

Choices...

I'm so excited for this, one of the greatest games especially in co-op.
I have no doubt hilarious antics will ensue regardless of the darker tone.

I haven't played early access, but one thing that really bugged me in OS1 is when you listened into conversations in co-op, the auto-scrolling would never work properly and would always scroll to the wrong part of the dialogue. Was this addressed in OS2?

I've not dared to touch the early access build all this time despite having it installed for months now. During this recent CRPG renaissance, I did not expect Larian to be a new favorite of mine. Their focus on fun combat and ambitious games that actually work is much appreciated.

We're debating with a friend to make our first playthroughs a completely coop one. It would take a lot of scheduling to play through a game this big, but it sounds potentially amazing.

This is what my brother and I did with OS1. Our playthrough was spaced out over months and months, but my gosh it was absolutely glorious to play through a game that big together. Highly recommended!

That is actually really cool way to do it. You can pick Origin and get extra shit right off the bat or run into Origin heroes during your adventures and help them on their quest.

I like that, a lot.

It does indeed have loot! Standard equipment slots (head, chest, etc.) and gets stronger as you level up and different rarities (color coded as per usual).

Early access is 14 gigs, and the full game is listed on the store as 35 gigs. Dunno how that'll work out with compression, but that gives you a rough idea of "big".
