Companion

Hi, me again. Another thing that came to my mind is whether the game will have NPC partners to interact with. From the information you have revealed, the core party will be 4 completely custom characters created by the player. I was wondering if there would even be a couple of NPC slots to add to the party with personal stories and quests. Maybe they will be temporary NPCs for a specific section of the game or more long-lived comrades who will join the party until the end of the game. Don't hate me for all these questions: D

That's a likely possibility, we're toying around with friendly NPCs who join you for a short time. Longer term, probably not - again keep in mind that we're balancing the game around a party of four.

That's if you want to, we will also have pre-generated characters with their own background and story :)

Yes this is an important point especially since the party size is only 4. It would definitely be good if any NPCs that are meant to join our party for quest or story reasons do not take away one of my very precious party slots. Same also for any animal companions or summons.
