Strategy Informer interview with Eric Flannum

Postby [FnG] Da Kril » Mon May 16, 2011 6:07 pm

Nice new interview (if short) with Guild Wars 2 lead designer Eric Flannum and game designer Jon Peters over at Strategy Informer.
(part 2 of this interview later in the week)

Good-ish news:
  • 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,
the Lion's Arch we know now is at the bottom of the bay of the new Lion's Arch,
and you can swim down and see it.

ArenaNet posted this new info about Lion's Arch on May 11, 2011.

Check out the kewl vid in HD if you can:



Enjoy,
