Sanctuary to Hold Ask Me Anything With Glaucon

Sanctuary has had a few high-profile Ask Me Anything’s in its time and it’s managed to rustle up another name to add to the ever-expanding list. Today they announced that on the 4th of May they’ll be having a AMA with Glaucon on the new Sanctuary forums from 8PM GMT.


Glaucon is the person who helps to make sure that the things you interact with in-game like the display and maps run smoothly. He’s also responsible for helping make sure that the new quality of life tweaks related to them work and look good. As TheChosenOne puts it “Glaucon is at the heart of the Secret World, making sure that your interaction with this living and breathing world is as smooth as possible.”

So if you’ve ever wanted to know what goes into creating new interface designs or why a particular feature isn’t included now is the time to get those questions answered. The AMA will take place on the new Sanctuary forums (which are very smooth) and you’ll need a forum account if you want to ask a question. Don’t worry it’s free and you can sign up here.

You can find out more information about the AMA over at the Sanctuary Forums here
