ArenaNet has come out with an absolutely MIND BLOWINGLY beautiful teaser trailer for the next installment of the Guild Wars family: Guild Wars 2. It looks absolutely stunning, and if I use an excessive amount of positive adjectives it is only because I am shocked and excited.
At first I was a little indifferent on the idea of Guild Wars 2. I wasn’t sure if I was going to go out of my way to purchase it or not. I played the first game enough to level up a character to the max of level 20 and get some epic spells, but, all in all, I wasn’t thoroughly impressed with it.
World Of Warcraft — though you have to pay to play it — had much better character customization, and that was the biggest thing for me. In World Of Warcraft you could choose from a selection of races and classes and really play how you wanted with the style you wanted. Guild Wars shall no longer face difficulty on that field.
Their races look diverse, and their worlds far more exciting and captivating than they were before. The new game will come complete with the option of five races we’ve seen so far, and who knows what will become of classes, seeing as how there is more than a year before the game’s November 2011 release.
Not only is the character customization much better than its predecessors, the ideas that the developers are trying to implement — causing every single character to have their own unique storyline, and each decision actually making a mark on the world itself — are utterly enthralling. The idea of not having to do the same old boring-ass quest over and over because you make new characters (because lets get serious, you HAVE to try each and every class and race at least once) is just the best thing since individually packaged cheese slices.
But enough of my praise towards the game. I will let you watch the trailer, and then, you can tell ME how amazingly wonderfully absolutely magnificently incredulous (yep, even adding my own words for this one) the game looks. Without further ado, here it is:
How about that eh? Hmm? What’s that? It is AWESOME? Yeah. I know.
Guild Wars 2 is begrudgingly set to be released late next year, November 2, 2011, to be exact. *sigh*
