Companion Developer Dispatch And Q&A At GameSpot!

GameSpot has scored an exclusive preview of an upcoming Developer Dispatch (presumably, part of tomorrow’s update!) We haven’t had a Friday Eve update like this in a while :)

The over seven minute video, with an entire cast of BioWare developers, designers and writers, takes a deep dive into the companion creation and customization process. For fans of companions, this is the update you’ve been waiting for… romance, story, customization, it’s all here:

James Ohlen:¬†Players are able to customize the appearance of their companions in two ways. Because companions are full characters with inventory slots, players can change the equipment their companions are wearing. You can give your tough-as-nails Mandalorian warrior companion some badass Mandalorian armor. Or you can put her in clothes reminiscent of Princess Leia’s famous gold bikini. Players can also change the skin color, hair, and facial features of their companion characters. We wanted players to have more freedom than in any previous BioWare RPG when it came to companion customization.

The video is embedded here for your convenience, but be sure to head over to GameSpot for the Q&A as well!
