Guild Wars 2 will utilize cinematic conversations to help tell the game’s story in a creative way. In fact, according to Senior Programmer James Boer in his latest blog, there are already over 1,500 cinematic conversations either in Guild Wars 2 or in the works. These conversations are in everything from personal story to dungeons and they’ve evolved quite a bit since the game began development.

What’s interesting is how this process has seen us move from our early ideas of static poses and stylized character rendering to a more lively and realistic portrayal. In game development, there’s nothing too unusual about things ending up a bit differently than you originally planned; and you can rest assure that, as we do with everything else, we’ll continue to look to improve our cinematic conversations even further.
