Guild Wars 2: ArenaNet's MMO Manifesto put to video 

ArenaNet has released a video which features the team discussing its Game Design Manifesto for Guild Wars 2. According to the developers, when creating the MMO, it had three main themes to adhere to: making an MMORPG a great RPG, rethinking combat, and making the MMO more social. You can watch it for yourself below, or if you would rather read about it, the Manifesto has been posted on the official site since 2010. You should still watch it, though. The next closed beta is scheduled for later this month and the game will be released this year.
