Then Peter Thomas, in his Gameplay/RPG Systems thread, said this:
If you attack a target on the PC, your character will keep attacking and follow until it dies or you tell him to do something different. On console your character doesn't do that by default, but can be ordered to from the radial menu.
Will the pc continue to fight when a target is selected even if a target moves position? or will the pc just stand and do nothing until the player selects another target?
Is that the official decision? It's not on by default but you can select it on the radial menu? If that is the case, is it an option you can turn on in the menu, or is it actually an "auto-attack" command you give to a specific person for the duration of a specific foe's life? Or has the official decision still not been made yet?
If you don't want to answer I understand, but I'm curious. I certainly didn't feel like anything was missing while playing the demo at PAX, in any case. It was plenty fast enough, even without Varric's exaggeration giving me extra abilities. But still it would be nice to know what the official word is.
