RPGDot Feature: Dungeon Siege 2: Broken World - Community Q&A

by Dhruin, 2006-06-21 00:53:00
RPGDot participated in a multi-site community Q&A to find out the latest on this upcoming DS2 expansion. Here's a sample:
[RPGDot] Have any improvements been made to the multiplayer component? Will the game still use Gamespy? Will it be easier for players to find one another and, if joining after a game's beginning, will it be easier for them to join a party?

Multiplayer is a fundamental component of the DS2 engine. We could not significantly change the functionality for Broken World without re-building DS2, so we focused on making a number of terrific upgrades to the UI, including character creation and chat functions. We are very excited to have Gamespy as an online partner again for Broken World.

Players will be able to import their DS2 MP characters into the expansion, or can make a new party and start over. DS2X data will not override DS2 saves, so you will even be able to pick up your DS2 party where it left off if you want to return to another mode of play in DS2.
