Yes, you can. It's also mentioned in the article. If you can't import a savegame, PoE2 would never know whether Eder is still alive or not in your game. ;)
Crash's deductions are correct. Sawyer has also mentioned that, should you have no save game to import, you'll be able to determine the state of the story in Pillars 2's introduction.

Thanks! I've played a few missions, with bits of strategy in between. I'd say the most profound change on the world map is your ability to manage rebel enclaves - assigning individuals the task of gathering intel, or resources, or new recruits. Over the long-term, I can only assume the strategy feels much more involved as a result - offering the map-level systemic depth I suspect Firaxis were a bit wary about embracing.
The new weapons and enemies and such certainly feel balanced - especially as a lot of them have been around in packs for a while now - but it's tough to know how the top-layer strategy is going to play out after 50 hours or whatever. There's certainly more than enough justification here to start a new campaign, though.

I didn't get any time with the multiplayer, so this is enlightening, cheers!
Well said - couch co-op is suffering a quiet death, outside of TowerFall. Real shame, that.
Chomps would require a completely different algorithm, given all that chewing.
However, more difficult to split unless you put them in the fridge, and let's not get started on Curly Wurlys, we'll be here all day.
Second-to-second (and over lots and lots of hours) I'd say I haven't really noticed any problems with performance. On a couple of occasions - ambushing a patrol or lobbing a grenade into a thick nest of enemies - I've seen the game struggle to display all the outcomes at once as it does all the maths. But that's all that springs to mind in terms of slowdown.
I see. I tried it and it doesn't seem to run very well on my system. I can't run at high 1440p 60fps I need to drop quite a lot of settings before I get a solid 60fps. 4670K @ 4.4GHz, GTX 970, 16GB of ram.
See this is what I was expecting.
WHHHYY WOULLD YOUU DOOOO THAAAATTTT
That... makes sense. Given that, I can't think of any benefits either.
2 benefits I can think of...
1. Lower matchmaking times. Quicker to get into games.
2. Less toxicity and flaming all around, as the PS4 players can only use the quickchat to PC players and vice versa
Hey, just to clarify - the giveaway closes in a week, but we're doling out codes from today as entries come in.
So....you will continue to give out "early access" keys after the early access is over (i.e. open beta begins)?
Perhaps a title change and clarification is in order.
(Assuming, of course, that you give all the keys out prior to OBT on the 16th.)
