has just released a new blog post to follow up its first Guild Wars 2
press beta weekend. Lead designer Eric Flannum
says that the preview event went off without a hitch
, and he also indicates that the dev team has a lot on its plate as it gears up to bring the game to a wider audience.
He starts things off with a look at Guild Wars 2's
unique "downed" mode, which is basically a pre-death state wherein you have a limited selection of abilities to rally and potentially save yourself. The blog goes on to detail changes to the game's compass, tweaks to its meta-events, and an extensive look at the updates to boons and conditions. Head to the official ArenaNet website for all the details.
