I saw the trailer for this about a month ago and I admit, I'm pretty excited about it. I've been trying to read up on what I can and while I know there is a lot you can't explain or answer right now, I was wondering if I could ask a couple of questions.
From what I've been able to find, there are a few unavoidable fights in the game, but are there any situations where the player has to negotiate their way forward? Either main story or side quest?
If so, does the player character still retain their armor and weapons or do they take on a more diplomatic appearance, like a nice suit or dress?
Lastly, do you still earn exp or suchlike for diplomacy over force? I imagine trying to do a pacifist run only to be under leveled for what fighting does take place would be something of a nightmare.
