Hello guys,

 

 

While we're all having pangs of nostalgia over the old Infinity Engine games, I'd like to raise the topic of multiplayer.

Now, bear with me, keep reading, don't get replying just yet if you please.

 

 

 

If I remember correctly, the community is quite divided wrt this very topic of having multiplayer in POE.

 

The main argument that often came up was "it's going to divert resources" or "it's going to delay the game", or even "rather a good single player game than a bad multi".

 

Those are all points I definitely can get behind, there is no question here.

 

 

 

Nay what I'd like to discuss is the addition of multiplayer after the release.

It has been done, and recently too.

Games such as Craft the World or Don't Starve added multiplayer post-release.

 

 

Why would I even want multiplayer ?

Bros, one of the things I regret most about PoE is not being able to share it with someone else.

 

 

Thoughts ?

Would you like to see coop multiplayer ?

I, like you all, do not wish to see the game's release or quality compromised, that's for sure.

 

I would love however, to see a multiplayer addition later on !

I didn't get into NWN2 in time to enjoy co-op and it's one of my great regrets.

While I'd love the opportunity for co-op in Deadfire, I'm not sure it is built to support it.

...and I wouldn't have anyone to play with anyway, all of my friends only play DoTA2 and CS.

Personally, I don't need it, since I don't have any friends at the moment who would sit down and play this with me. 

 

But as a post release feature? Sure, why not. Although then you could argue that it's diverting resources from the expansion packs ;)

Guys, we're chatting here.

 

You don't need to play it with current existing friends, you can make new ones here and get the opportunity to discover new people ^^

I was against before my experience with Divinity, after playing with both strangers and friends I had an excellent time .The feature has a lot of potential to extend the game lifetime and discussion overall. I wouldn't mind an expansion starring this feature to be quite honest.

I wouldn't worry about finding people to play with, this and the PoE2 reddit would make it pretty easy to find other members of the community to play with. I am all for it, in fact...I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it is one of the "very complicated features" they aren't ready to show us yet but I am probably being too hopeful. Having it post launch would be fine too, if it doesn't happen I won't lose any sleep over it.
