Act 1 has one fixed start for everyone but branches out straight away in a wide variety of ways depending on your choices, offering 50 possible end game scenarios in total.
Act 2 will have multiple start game scenarios and these will be based on the playthrough of Act 1. (The same setup for Act 3). So, playing the Acts chronologically will generate a noticeable immersion bonus.
As each Act can be played individually Act 2 and Act 3 will generate your start game scenario randomly if you haven't played the preceding Act.
A typical session would be going through a full chapter or two. You are reading an extremely captivating story and atmosphere and within each chapter you will have to make at least 1 well thought out decision. This is not a simple matter of “Go left or right?” but rather moral grey zones where you, for example, would have to prioritize your survival chances or be very selfish towards the other people in your group. What would work best for you in the long run?
Each Act is a game on its own and a full playthrough would equal about the length of short novel. Then add to that inventory management and navigational decisions.
On your second playthrough you will have a completely different game and Act 1 has a staggering 50 possible endings in total.
