Guild Wars 2 has taken gamescom by storm during the last three days and our team on the floor has brought back a massive amount of details about the upcoming game. Designer Isaiah "Izzy" Cartwright walks Reuben "Sardu" Waters through a live game demonstration in a lengthy video showcasing actual live gameplay and we've got the details on dynamic events, the new Necromancer special ability, and a lot more. Stay tuned to Ten Ton Hammer with more details from gamescom as they come in, including questions you've asked answered by Game Designer Eric Flannum.
But not only was there an incredibly positive fan reaction to the world premiere of Guild Wars 2, the game has also snagged the Best of Show (Online Games) award from the event. This is no small feat considering the high caliber competition including such notable titles as Rift: Planes of Telara, Star Wars: The Old Republic and TERA among many others. It was also readily apparent that ArenaNet stayed true to their word when they released their latest MMO Manifesto last week, and has certainly "walked the walk" by pulling the wraps off of a game that truly breaks new ground in the MMOG space.
Our Extended Look at the Gameplay of GW2 focuses on actual gameplay and if ArenaNet can walk the walk. Be alert for more information coming straight from gamescom.
