Are there really things to spend all your EGO points on if you are EGO 5000 or will you have a ton of points leftover. I didn't play the game yet, so maybe this question makes no sense. Do you get EGO points per EGO rating?

No, Ego rating gets much higher than the points you get. I would have like 170 rating and maybe 6 points.

No you only get them after so many ego levels but I don't know the exact number and you can also upgrade your perks, it takes one point to unlock two to upgrade once, three to upgrade again etc

Not quite sure but i highly doubt you'll have any points left over i hope they make it to where you can max out every skill and perk. Because they limit you to like 12 perks anyways

Every time you xp bar fills up you gain 10 ego rating and one ego point. You also gain rating points for other things like leveling your weapon skill and achieving goals. It would not be hard for them to add more ego powers and perks since the 'leveling' in this game is more sideways than linear.

Here is something to look at while you wait.

Right now, if you were to unlock (and max) every perk and every ability you'd need to be EGO 2600 or so. Which leaves me to believe we may get additional perks and abilities opened up down the line.

Though this information is relating to the beta client. Not even sure if it's still true for the live game.

Devs said in one of the streams that new Ego power might come later

I think it will take at least a few months to reach 5000 ego.
so they have time to figure out how to add
other things in. skills and so on.

How many perks can you have active at once?

this I can answer again based upon the beta
you can have Two main ego skills and Nine passive ego
perks equipped. by passive I mean perks like ammo thief and thick skinned.

you can have for example cloak and overcharge.
so you cloak and coming out of cloak use overcharge and kill.
just an example. but in a word, yes.

actually you can only use one ego abilitiy per loadout. so no you cant use cloak and then overcharge unless you change loadouts very fast

Thats not possible, you can unlock them all but only have 1/loadout and you need to go menu to change loadouts

This is true. They could turn it around and charge more for perk/ego upgrades when it releases. Although I am hoping it stays the same and they just add additional perks and powers for us to unlock.

DOH! you're right! I guess I used it so often it felt like a power
especally with a cooldown and no limit lol.
