He also discusses the overall philosophy that has governed Guild Wars 2 from the very start: “From the very beginning, we knew Guild Wars 2 was going to be about the friendships that players make,” he says, adding that “MMOs are a social environment. It’s about playing together . . . and sharing a love of fantasy, of video games, of the lore, it’s all about coming together and doing these things.” To close out the interview, Zadorojny delves into the ways in which the game’s focus has shifted and grown over the course of its development and teases what fans can expect from Guild Wars 2 in its upcoming fifth season. To hear everything Zadorojny had to say in his own words, you can check out the full video past the cut, or stay tuned for our own interview from PAX later this week.
