Hello Last Epoch devs and forum members!
I’ve been lurking this forum for the last couple of days and in the end I decided to make an account and talk with you in the most direct and open way possible. Please forgive me as this post will become a wall of text as I want to introduce myself and ask one or two questions relevant to me.
I first found out about Last Epoch from you introducing yourselves on Grim Dawn forums - a game I’ve been playing from beta and continue to enjoy immensely. For the last 15 years (maybe more) I’ve been playing ARPG-s exclusively - Grim Dawn (being my favorite of the lot), Diablo 1 and 2, Titan Quest, Sacred 1 and 2, Torchlight 1 and 2, Victor Vran - just to name the major ones (you’ll notice I didn’t include PoE or DIII - reason for that will become clear in a little bit). My passion for the genre only grows with the passing of the years So naturally two upcoming games entered my radar - Last Epoch and Wolcen. I began to dig for information about the two. And frankly what I found was this - so far I like this game better! The classes, the art, the playstyle, the passion of the developing team, the available lore, skills, the bits and pieces of loot that will become available (loved the visual feel of 2 sets you showed and their descriptions) - it all speaks to me! Last Epoch has great potential!
I only ever play single player. OFFLINE single player. Exclusively. (hence the reason for not including PoE and DIII, also Torchlight: Frontiers - an MMOARPG - an abomination imho - but to each his own, I don’t judge (liked the robot class but thats it) ) I like to play the game I bought whenever I want, not depending on whims of internet connections or servers or other stuff. DIII failed here miserably, but PoE did this well - game is online but it is free-to-play. My point and question is this:
- Will Last Epoch include truly offline single-player??? - and I mean offline as in end-of-the-world-no-internet-zombie-apocalypse-one-PC-running-on-generator-firing-up-your-game. I know it says so in the game description on this site but it also says Last Epoch - Hack and Slash Online Action RPG… I know it will have to have some internet connection for mtx and updates and such and I am ok with that (might even purchase some or many if reasonable). Will I be able to fire up Last Epoch (with cosmetic mtx stuff if purchased) and play it without the need to be on-line? This is a deal-breaker for me…
I hope you will answer this question and gain another hardcore fan. Cheers!
PS sorry once again for the long post
