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.
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.
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 !
