More than Five Companions
What he had to say about the number of available companions caught our attention, especially in light of the current speculation that we will be limited to five companions at launch. Daniel Erickson said that was a misconception. “In the companions video they say that you have access to all five types of companions. That does not mean that the limit of companions is five….five is definitely not the number nor the limit,” he confirmed at approximately the 13:29 minute mark.
New Species or Class Combos?
When asked about possible new playable species or new class-species combinations, Daniel answered at the 14:05 minute mark, “I think youll probably see one more sort of final run at the species class combinations, and yeah I can’t talk about what that final one is cuz it’s always a debate between the things that work the best for the story in each place divided with things the fans really want to see and you know what’s going to give the most variety.”
