I say this because many of us here who do not have the DLC wish to reincarnate as Behemoth to give it a go
Let's say if you join a game with Behemoth as the bot, can you take over it even though you do not have the DLC?
Absolutely. I’ve done this with Torvald, who I have not purchased, and the devs have been saying you could do it for a very long time.
You can take over anything, no matter whether you can select it or not, this was explicitly stated, as they do not want to bar anyone from joining a game for paywall reasons.
You just get no choice, and have to deal with the results of bot stu… foolishness.
you can even play as a strider. (hilariously fun, delivering yourself to the future yourself for your consumption)
