- The game is still set for no subscription fee, but will have "micro-transactions" of the sort we've seen in GW1 (costumes, storage panes, etc.) — not 'required' to do well in the game, but cool stuff you may want
- However nifty it looks, the game will be playable on low-end machines (they develop on older, low-end cards)
- "Definitely on track" for putting the game through closed alpha and beta later this year
I thought the stuff about the new Lion's Arch was interesting — after 250 years,

and you can swim down and see it.
