An anticipated and upcoming game; the sequel of Guild Wars. The world of Tyria has grown up and a new threat has presented itself: Dragons. I got to play the beta and I have to say that I'm impressed. I'm not new to the Guild Wars scene and the first is one of my favorite games. I've read the published books leading up to GW2 and I expect great things.
As for the gameplay, I find it very interesting. Unlike Guild Wars 1, you can now jump and the worlds aren't unique to you and your party. There are no henchmen this time around, but it isn't difficult to get help when you need it by some passing stranger. Possibly the most interesting things are the world events. Players band together to reach a common goal. Usually these events are random and can pop up at any time. They range from collecting items on the ground, to killing huge Swamp Behemoths from the underworld. And no matter where you go, there is bound to always be an event going on.
The beta weekend finale was amusing for this weekend. We had to fight a legendary bunny, forest critters, and Champion Bloodthirsty Black Moas (and boy were they a lot) in order to gain Norn glory. Our server managed to gather 200K+ in the end before we were kicked off.
All in all, the GW2 beta is kind of awesome and I look forward to playing the full game and getting my Rytlock figure from my Collectors Edition.
