    So another month, another press embargo lifted! Yes, behind closed doors Carbine Studios gave interviews and game time to the gaming press after giving them a preview of this Wednesday's Epic Drop on Paths. Which means, the moment the official content went live, the interviews and game footage was likewise unleashed!

    Being the kind-hearted and caring fansite community that WSC is, we all banded together to ensure nothing was missed! But... if you missed all the excitement, what should you read first? What should you watch? Well that, humble reader, is where we have you covered as well! Avante!

    Videos
    F2P's Recording of the Press Presentation
    So, while the Voxine and DevSpeak are available via official sources, the second part of this footage from F2P.com is not - it's the press demo of the Paths. While it's cam work and not a direct recording of the gameplay, it has some interesting moments and is the source for a lot of the articles you could read - I know I prefer to watch!

    Dealspwn's Interview with Stephan Frost
    With a little debatable sound quality, of course any interview with a developer is a can't-miss event. We hear new information on Settler Depots, degradation time on buildings, holocrypts and a summary of the various elder games. Plus, Frost guarantees that there will be a mount that will actually make you soil yourself!

    GBTV's Interview with Jeremy Gaffney
    While the interview is audio-only (and interesting in it's own right - though is more of a general game overview), over the top of some gameplay footage of an Esper in Galeras. And oh yeah, that "hybrid payment model" mentioned as well at the end of the interview.

    GamesRadar's Developer Demo
    Some more Galeras gameplay, but this time GamesRadar is being guided round and shown the ropes by Gaffer himself. Have a watch!


    Articles
    Massively Interviews Jeremy Gaffney (On Settlers, On Tradeskills/Progression)
    Interviews with Gaffer are always a treat - as Executive Producer he is less confined than most of Carbine Studios in terms of what he can speak about Both of these are guaranteed must-reads even if you have watched the previously recommended videos!

    ZAM's Beating a Path to Nexus
    Another Gaffer interview, but this one seems to have gone to lengths to maintain Jeremy's "voice" in the answers - it makes it both informative and entertaining to read. Check it out!

    GBTV's Screenshots from Whitevale
    And of course, the press were supplied with a number of stock screenshots - including the Contested zone of Whitevale. Well worth checking out for an early look at an (as yet) unseen zone!

    I like how F2P.com has WS listed as a free to play game on their website contrary to there not having been a pay model announcement. Good job, guys.
