Anarchy Online: Alien Invasion Q&A, Part One

Anarchy Online has published the first installment of a new Anarchy Online: Alien Invasion interview with the MMORPG's game director, Marius Enge. An excerpt to follow:
Q: What are some design themes you've come up with for the player Controlled towns?

A: The most important thing to mention here is easy access for the players. Both into the city and out of the city as well as something completely new when it comes to easy-travel that I wont reveal just yet. But we plan to make it easy on the players, as well as when alien attacks occur it shouldn't be a hassle. In addition the player controlled shops are located in the cities, which will make for something to do in the cities for everyone.
