Hey has anyone heard anything about the DS2 Multiplay? I mean as far as im concerned DS multiplay was was pretty good and was a well developed world. Not to say there werent problems with it. It was kinda like a multiplayer version of the single player game - wasnt much more to do than play through all the missions and such. Im hoping for a more complex multiplayer world where team coordination will be a vital part of the gameplay.

I understand that players joining the game may be somewhat smoother than before.

Not to mention that you will be able to bring a party with you into multiplayer.

The same map will be used for both single- and multiplayer this time. That's not necessarily a bad thing though, it means they can devote all time and details to that one map.

But this kind of things is difficult to know before playing the game. We will just have to wait.

Will you be able to play with people in a team? Me and 2 friends are looking for a game to all play together, and DSII sounds promising

I think it is pretty safe to assume that they have not removed that feature. In this type of games, that has always been the main multiplayer mode, much more popular than player vs. player.

I've got DS:LoA but I haven't had the time or the ability to play it online. I go to install DS on my Internet Enabled computer and the install disc is screwed (so I'll never get to sample it online)

So with DS multiplayer there is
1. PvP
2. Co-Operative Vs Computer?
3. Team 1 Vs Team 2?

I'd like to have my 2 friends play with me against other people, so I assume this is already in the game.

Is multiplayer good for DS? Do you need to finish single player with an ownage character to be able to compete, or do your players level up IN the online game and then you can import the upgraded players to new games?

Been a long time since I last checked on DS... still one of my favorite games. So many memories...

Anyway, wasn't this game supposed to be released this year? My party has been waiting all year for it, satisfying ourselves with WC3 and mmorpgs.

Ah yes, it was. But as pretty much all games nowadays, it's been delayed. The latest we've heard is spring 2005, and hopefully that will stand to the release.
