The folks at Fragland bring us the latest preview of Dungeon Siege II, once again based upon a press copy of the action RPG sequel. Here's a snip:
If you want, you can quickly add 2 new members to your party to travel more comfortable through the woods of Eirulan. The "learning while doing" system of the original game has been kept, which means you'll need to fight with your sword if you want to improve in melee combat. With each level that rises, you get some skill point with which you can give that hero more life or armor, make him use bows and arrows more efficiently, or have him "harvest" some mana- or life potions from certain bushes.
