Multiplayer is not a feature in Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire. The game uses online connectivity to deliver patches, but there are no local or online interactions with other players. All your Companions are instead AI.
Missing out. Divinity OS has been massively successful and largely due to multiplayer. I know it's expensive to implement, but would likely be returned tenfold. I'll be missing this rpg due to lack of multiplayer, and I know I'm not alone.
Well i, for one, appreciate your humor
