Dungeon Siege 3 - On Co-Op Experience
GameSpot's recent Dungeon Siege 3 interview muddied the water on receiving XP for co-op characters with the article creating the impression you wouldn't receive XP. Destructoid has followed this up and it turns out to be simple - you do get XP, with a dedicated MP character:
"Dungeon Siege III’s cooperative multiplayer mode is designed to be easily accessible and allow for a drop-in, drop-out multiplayer structure," explained associate producer Nathan Davis. "To bring this vision to fruition while maintaining both the deep story-based experience of the game and the balance of characters versus enemies, your single player characters will be distinct from your multiplayer characters -- however both can be persistently grown, equipped and adventured with over multiple game sessions.
"Co-op players can absolutely expect to have the loot and experience they gain in multiplayer games to be saved to their multiplayer characters ... Achievements and Trophies earned in multiplayer are still saved to your profile as normal and there are additional awards that you can only receive from playing in a multiplayer co-operative game."
