To minimize eversprawling speculation threads, I decided to make this one. I put links from information from Josh Sawyer about new mechanics and other interesting stuff.

I do believe we'll get more detailed updates for what's new in Pillars 2 by the devs themselves soon enough, but untill then we can use these and talk around them.

Fell free to link any other info I might (probably) missed!

- About party size (From Fig comments section, contribution by IndiraLightfoot):
Faergus:  I can say the party being five people is something we will stick with.
 
- About system requirements (From Fig comments section, contribution by PrimeJunta):
System requirements unchanged from Pillars 1 (sorry for not providing a link or a copy-paste crom the original post but it's lost in the 2k+ comments in Fig and I though it was important).

"In most circumstances, party members can grant bonuses to the main party member performing an action. The math is a little complex, but the end result is that nothing is really redundant. It the very least, you’ll gain a marginal bonus if multiple party members have points in a skill."

Reminds me of that injured wolf in White March. Iirc you could not heal it, if you had Field Triage on a companion but not MC.

Awesome. I'm particularly interested in hearing about the new skills system more in depth. Sounds very promising.

And on racial bonuses and new Godlikes:
 
Got some questions.
1. Are racial bonuses going to be changed?
2. Will there be different types of Godlikes? (Wael, Skaen, etc)

@Sedrefilos: Feel free to add my info and of course others to your OP. That way, it's even easier for people to see the known info (It will be a bit of work for you, though. In my case, just add fig links).

Just an idea, if you have the time or the inclination, as it were.

I am willing to of course, it's just that the links so far are from the fig forums and when you click them it takes you to the top of the discussion, so one must navigate lienes and lines of posts to find it. Also, about copy-paste posts (which is better imo because one can see directly the information) they take up space and I wanted the OP to have just easy links so one can see the title, click the link and voi-la.

If I find a way to do it as to be easy I'll definately place info from posts directly to the OP. It might be a way but I'm not familiar with this advanced technological stuff :p
If you know how to do it and you're willing to show I'd appreciate it! :)

Perhaps you don't need those links then. Just copy and paste the essence of my posts, for instance, and add this at the end (Source: Feargus, Fig).

Wonderful, Sedrfilos! :)

 

Just add my info from post nr 3 too, since it's pretty important: PoE2 will have 5 party members instead of 6, and they will stick with that decision (Source: Feargus, Fig).

Very good idea for a post (says someone who posted a speculation thread). If we could get it stickied that would be very handy.
