Naw, problems here as well. It stops after every few seconds and tells me address or file not found. Reloading the page restarts it, but... bleh.

Interesting vid but it raises more questions than answers. I was not sure how to read the NPC's being oblivious to the player avatars in the beginning section, they seemed to just want to walk around the players, was this intended or were they using a dev trick or were the NPC's neutral until attacked, nothing was said.

@Graill:

As mentioned below, in the first part one of the devs was using godmode + invisibility debugs to show off some of the features without the screen being filled up with combat. This was a leaked video of someone showing off the engine and not an actual press release, so there's a few things that look a little questionable, yeah.

I absolutely HATE streaming video feeds that don't buffer playback, so unless the video is playing it doesn't preload the file. Meaning I can't just pause it and let the whole video load so I can play it without stuttering every 1.5 seconds.

Same here. My current internet connection is horrible. The only way I can watch videos like this is to pause and buffer. :-/

Im having better luck using the manual download link on the site. Its still not maxing my connection, but should be done in about 7 minutes... Give them a break, who knows how many people are trying to view the video.

There's currently a huge load on the video server, due to all the people watching this video.

The combat seems quite like DDO's with the addition of adding any skill to auto-attack. Some people dislike the UI, I don't really mind except the Diabloesque health bar-It could be that it's just the Charr-style UI and the other races have their own.

Note: The dev playing the game in the video has god mode on, so the player deals a massive amount of damage and is invisible to mobs. In the later part of the video (Harpy fighting) you can see the character's health and damage output drop.

Quick edit, sorry for the double post.
2:17 of the video on Youtube- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AvLX-qGjX60, the full video is about 5:30.

Its also important to note that UI is something that doesn't typically final until the last few dev cycles of a project.

Placeholder and generic UI is often put in to give the relevant impressions for usability testing like this, but its not indicative of the actual UI design direction people should expect.

I managed to view it before the omega trump of people tried to, but the vid just raises more questions than answers. Gotta wait for the live streaming from...... somewhere.

I just would like to point out that this is an unofficial leak by someone outside Anet............... There is a speaker but what he says is garbled due to the crappy recording so we have no idea what is going on in this clip. I just want to add this before people go OMG TEH GW2 IZ LIEZ!!!

Note to Editor:

I've gotten really hammered at a couple parties before...but I never stuttered quite like that. :(

...but thanks for the update!

Looks decent enough, as far as 5 minute gameplay clips go. Most important bit of information, loading screens are still very, very short. ;)

Hmmmm. Pretty cool I guess. Definitely doesn't remind me of Guild Wars though. Looks more like the combat of well...you know. If the PvP is good I'll be there.

I agree, one of the things i liked from GW1 was that the numbers weren't OVER NINE THOUSAAAAAAND!! they were reasonable.
