Hello..........

I was wondering if this game will feature a companion(s) system allowing you to meet AI in the worlds you travel too and allow them to follow you? So when travelling around doing side quests or general casual play these companions can aid you in fight. Having the ability to change their appearance/equipment and all that stuff.

Would love to know as I think this really does help the game and allow you to play through in different angles/approaches.

Cheers,

Blathered

I think you have max two companions at a time you can pick from those you have recruited, Mass Effect style.

How about pets? If anyone from Obsidian is watching, wouldn't mind a dog, (preferrably a Husky or German Shepherd), or maybe a big cat, like a Jaguar, Tiger, etc. But NO Lions!!

I don't think we'll be seeing any terrestrial animals in OW... but I've been wrong before.

hoping for no micromanage equipment for companions

the fnv system of new equipment after companion quest was a great idea

All the companions will likely be SJW nobs.

Don't worry, I'm sure someone will mod in a literal space nazi for 'balance'

This sounds like what they have in mind and can be a nice system/addition IMO. 

 

There are many memorable companion/ihnteractino moments in these types of games.

BTW they confirmed you get to choose all your companions' equipment except for some special item that they use in their special move.

 

They revealed some info about a couple of companions, Ellie who's kind of a space pirate who will be totally all right with you murdering and looting and who is proficient at finger guns, Parvati who's a sweet naive mechanic who'd prefer you didn't murder anyone, please and who from videos I think swings a comically large hammer at people, and Felix who is a rebel, fight the powers that be, smash the state etc.

I just want a goofy/silly robot companion fueled by Tim Cains humor, that will be cool, and super funny.
