So far only four have been revealed:
though it's been mentioned there's «around a dozen» or so in the game.
If that's the case, there is still the option for returning characters from older games. Do you think we might see one?
Or what do you hope to see in a companion?
Will they all have personal quests?
Will you romance a character?
Will you take the perk allowing you to have two companions?
Or even the perk that allows you to make temporary companions (and have a mount — to boot).
I'm undecided. Dogmeat is unkillable, and that makes him an excellent option, but I'm curious about the unknowns. It's possible that in a playthrough, some will be locked out by choosing others. Or that they could be missed.
What are your thoughts about the companions released so far and all the other questions?
