In the last few days, there have been several bits of news about GW2, via the new ArenaNet blog. One interesting development in the Design Manifesto is the way Spells will work: you'll have five general spells + 5 weapon-specific spells. They also say the PvE experience will be more interactive e.g. you'll stumble on other parties doing their own things, or hear rumblings from far away ...
PS to answer a previous question: Tyria is both the name of the world and a continent on it. This is because the continent was the "world" of the original GW Prophecies, but then they figured out that they needed more continents for the sequels. The other continents are Cantha (Factions) and Elona (Nightfall).
Kryta is the region of Tyria where players of the original GW end up after crossing the Shiverpeaks. It's also the scene of the Bonus Missions and the Eye Of The North expansion. All recent storylines are set there, including those setting up the GW2 storyline, such as the Shining Blade / White Mantle War.
Guild Wars ,
Now theres a blast from the past for me.
Was actually my first mmo *tear wellowing in eye*.
Will check out the new one.Am looking for something good to get
Too much MW2 and BFBC2 has my head wrecked
Warrior gameplay video was released recently. Actually looks really nice.
Looks very nice.
Didnt like GW at all, always felt like a single player game.
Questing in the world was a lonely experience and just seemed like a poor mans mmo.
it was, hense the freeness.
They have to instance the world as they literally cant afford to upkeeper hardware and servers to allow everyone running together in an interactive world.
Is it me or does it just look like aion to much even the combat looks like aion's.
New video released, showing the Ranger.
ah guild wars... I played that for a long time with a group of folks from ireland. An cullacht.
This does look fantastic i must saw but guild wars itself was boring to me and it was the social side that kept my interest
ah I really love GW1, and I can't wait for 2 to come out. Got pcgamer magazine today and read the piece on it. From what they're saying about the new way questing will be done it going to be amazing!
Just read that article too, sounds great. Will be a massive pain for them to get it working well as after 10 minutes I know someone will have found a way to glitch/ exploit it.
Also, the way they manage abilities and how you gain new skills by travelling the world hunting masters and lost tomes and such, a lot better than hiting rats for 27 hours until the blue bar goes to the top and you learn how to rain fire from the sky somehow???
I'm still not sure about the new skill-bar changes. I'm wondering if they'll have made it too simple, which I think will take a lot away from the game
Did they release the trailer when Blizzard revealed details about cataclysm or did Blizzard start talking when GW2 got some attention
New dev manifesto vid
Damn that was a good video. If nothing else, their game world looks amazing. I'm not gonna get too psyched about it, as i've been bitterly disappointed by MMO's too many times before, but i'll remain quietly optimistic about this one.
Quietly optimistic is my stance too.
