Guild Wars 2

A MMORPG game for PC by ArenaNet / NCsoft in the Guild Wars series

Guild Wars 2 is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game in development by ArenaNet. Set in the fantasy world of Tyria, the game follows the re-emergence of Destiny's Edge, a disbanded guild dedicated to fighting the Elder Dragons, a Lovecraftian species that has seized control of Tyria in the time since the original Guild Wars. The game takes place in a persistent world with a story that progresses in instanced environments.

Guild Wars 2 claims to be unique in the genre by featuring a storyline that is responsive to player actions, something which is common in single player role-playing games but rarely seen in multiplayer ones. A dynamic event system replaces traditional questing, utilising the ripple effect to allow players to approach quests in different ways as part of a persistent world. Also of note is the combat system, which aims to be more dynamic than its predecessor by promoting synergy between professions and using the environment as a weapon, as well as reducing the complexity of the Magic-style skill system of the original game. As a sequel to Guild Wars, Guild Wars 2 will feature the same lack of subscription fees that distinguished its predecessor from other commercially developed online games of the time, though a purchase is still required to install the game.

Guild Wars 2 impressions

So I purchased a digital copy of Guild Wars 2 yesterday. I never played Guild Wars but I've played my fair share of World of Warcraft as well as a small amount of a few other MMORPGs and Guild Wars 2 looked promising.

Jumping into a new MMO, even for someone who's played one before, can be a pretty big jump. You have no idea of the world's setting, game mechanics or whether the community is going to be comprised complete idiots. Logging into the game with promises from the developers of "putting the player first" and have no grinding, I was either in for a surprise (of it actually being true) or a let down. Read on
