Called the new “MMO Manifesto” video, ArenaNet’s major developers Mike O’Brien, Daniel Dociu, Colin Johanson, and Ree Soesbee talk in detail about the conventions of the MMO genre, and how Guild Wars 2 intends to break that mold. As the developers talk about the game, some spectacular gameplay scenes and concepts saturate the video, so that it not only tells you how Guild Wars 2 will set a new bar, but shows it to you.
Of particular interest is the developers discussion of cause and effect and how players can literally effect the game world in a major and permanent way. The new, dynamic take on questing and of course, the wonderful art-style and graphical quality all show just how rich the game will be.
The video speaks for itself, so check it out.
