So like Neverwinter you have to pay a lot of real money to get all the good stuff o well nevermind it seems lots of games are going like this.
That's not a good thing in my books. The whole DLC and Pay-to-Win schemes I am not a big fan of. It is a shame that so many games are going this way - it ends up being much more expensive for true fans of the game, basically just a huge cash-grab. I would rather just pay for the game and never have to worry about unloading any more cash on it again.
Regardless, you do not have to pay a single coin for this game if you don't want to. Only an elitist, completionist or Gregulus would consider doing so in reality.
I was not on with Sephi, just a few randoms, but it went okay. Be good when we have a proper group of us playing for lan nights me-thinks. Only problem I see is that with only 2.0 character slots, we would need a designated coop character or else suffer the consequences of being all over the shop with different levelled characters (like we did with Borderlands 2). I am not sure how the system works with characters of varying levels - it is something we will have to investigate.
On another note, the levels are random too. It's very similar to the way Hellgate generated levels - where they had specific built rooms and the game joined them all together randomly. This means if you fail a mission, you will be playing an entirely different version of it the next time you play it.
