Playing games like BG with a generic party is imo completely pointless and the game was NEVER made to be like that. Neither was DOS or PoE. Actually, a lot of what is great about them is about the companions. It's much of the heart of the narrative experience.

So making something like that would be the complete opposite direction than what Swen told us so far about the vision for DOS2, to blend narrative better into the gameplay and enhance it on almost every level. DOS2 is meant to be Larian's BG2, not it's Icewind Dale... wink
