so i have my pc copy ordered and was wondering if anyone else was going to be playing on pc. would be nice to do the co-op with tog friends on voice chat as opposed to just random internet strangers. for anyone curious about the online co-op stuff, here's a twitch stream of the devs playing co-op, using new level 1 characters: Bioware on Twitch playing multiplayer to sum up the video, and multiplayer in general: * teams of 4 fight thru a dungeon to a boss, earning gold and xp * gold is used to buy various chests from the in-game store, netting you weapons, crafting items, potions and possibly new armor (which unlocks new classes to play) * there are currently 3 factions to fight against: the venatori (humanoids), red templars and the demons * each faction has it's own environment and there are 10 different locations within each environment * at the start of a game, 5 locations are randomly picked (from the faction you are fighting) and stung together to make a dungeon, making each play through different * all gold is shared among all players regardless of who opens a chest or loots it * xp is earned individually and tallied at the end of the match to see who earned the most, but then all xp is granted to all of the players, so everyone gets the same amount * multiplayer characters and loot are completely separate from the single player campaign in the stream linked above, they play 3 matches on normal difficulty. in the first match, they died in the third zone and everyone leveled up from level 1 to about half way through level 3. in the second match, they died in the fourth zone and everyone leveled up from level 3 to level 5. in the third match, they made it to the fifth zone to fight the boss but they all died without clearing it. they did not show the match results so i don't know how much xp they got or how high they leveled. and they did all that in about an hour. the devs say it is their intention to make the game challenging and that team work is essential to clearing a dungeon. i didn't really get into the mass effect 3 multilpayer but this seems more fun and more in line with what i would enjoy. my origin id is: mesterjester in case any other pc players want to hook up and try some multiplayer. there's also another twitch stream this wednesday, november 12, showing more multiplayer but using higher leveled characters and i think a different faction, but i'm not sure what time it is.
