From the article by Carolyn Koh:
“Companion characters will not be able to die,” said Rich, “we try not to let players do things that will hurt themselves. Companions can, however, be hurt, be captured, and not be able to adventure with your for a while.”
There was more to the Companion system that I asked about, but they were saving it for a big reveal at PAX Prime in a couple of weeks. Will you be there?
So what do you think it is? Could it be a new system to control our companions? Maybe it means new companion reveals? There are so many different things it could be but you can bet we’re excited to follow the Penny Arcade Expo next week and find out!
