Arenanet has just released four videos outlining organized Player versus Player, Dynamic events, the personalized storyline, and more.  Extra videos are on the way, including a video about World versus World PVP.  You can check out the videos and the content on the Arenanet blog.

Quote

Earlier in the development of Guild Wars 2 we released our MMO Manifesto video, a high-level look at the philosophy behind the design of the game. As we approach the launch date, now is the perfect time to talk about the outcome of that design philosophy with a look at the core ideas that the game is built on: personal story, dynamic events, combat, and PvP.

Ebonhakwe was accesible for a few moments during BWE1, but when I got in, I was kicked out of the client for "faulty geographical move."  The gate that led to it was immediatly blocked.

I feel they try too hard, some of the videos are a bit awkward. But I'm in the inner circle of GW2 fans so my POV is not really suited to assess their attempts to teach the uninitiated.

Pretty cool about the PvP pirate ship. I didn't know there was going to be a map like that. :)

Yet there is nothing new on these vids, would love to see some more PvE content, as in dungeons with some devs commentating on it ;-)

Not really, the only new thing is the pirate ship map.

Somebody asked a few months ago when they would be starting to market their game. I guess now they have their answer. Let's see what the next days and weeks hold for us.

Advsertising has been going on for quite a while, and the next few weeks probably old banner ads and mor  videos, including one on WVW.

Woah... I guess you went through the asura gate in Rurikton, then?

No, there is a gate in a very obscure area of Dinvity Reach... at least, there was, until the second BWE.

The view of the pirate ship and Ebonhawke was new for most people. But we alrdy knew that they existed.

"We're not going to ask you to bring a calculator; we're not going to ask you to bring a spreadsheet...it's about you bring your A game, and I bring my A game, and I bring my A game, and at the end of the day, one of us goes home licking their wounds. That's what competitive PvP is about."

Hell yeah.

That quote needs to be read by every developer who thinks about adding competitive/structured PvP to their games. I hope ANet also follows their own mantra (which they seem to be doing).

This videos are good in that now I have something I can show my friends to hopefully get them interested in the game. I'm glad to have a short vid saying "this is a dynamic event" "this is a personal story" ect.
