In Dungeon Siege III, co-op group members are allowed to vote on the outcome of key story decisions.

Your friends can decide whether a quest is accepted or turned down, noted the European PlayStation blog. They can even say whether a person lives or dies, and the consequences of their input can alter the course of the story.

The final decision, however, rests with the host of the co-op session.

Dungeon Siege III developer Obsidian has until now been coy about co-op details. But we now know the game will support drop-in co-op for groups of up to four gamers. Offline there will be support for two.

Cleverly, the action role-playing game also scales the challenge as the group size grows. Enemies will be stronger and deadlier, and there will be proportionally more XP rewarded for killing, as well as better loot dropped.

Eurogamer took a look at Dungeon Siege III earlier this year and concluded that "what's been shown so far is confident, likable, and engaging".

Not long after, Eurogamer's Wesley Yin-Poole hurled questions at project director Rich Taylor.
