- GW2: Sequel to popular MMORPG guild wars
- Edited by: 11/19/2010
Guild wars 2 is the sequel to the popular MMORPG guild wars. Guild wars revolutionized mmorpgs with its affordability and unique streaming software. The game required a one off payment. There were no monthly subscriptions or plans. Players were able to access the virtual world at any given time. The streaming technology allowed players to play while the game updates were downloading. This meant that there would be no downloading down time for the players. Guild wars followed a fantasy theme with a few twists. In the long run these twists may have lead to its success and downfall. However Areanet has released trailers and information about Guild Wars 2. The creators proclaim that they have mastered the essential elements of MMORPGs and are planning to implement it into Guild Wars 2. Despite the delays I believe that Guild wars may be one of the greatest releases in 2011. The trailers reveal incredible design and artwork. Much of the questing and leveling segments of the game will be scripted. Therefore players will be able to truly immerse themselves in the world of Tyria.
Guild wars 2 will follow the similar mechanics of guild wars with several improvements. The skill system will still be free for all. There will be no classes and restrictions with other MMORPGS. The game will also be free roaming unlike Guild Wars. Therefore players can expect a much smoother transition into the world. I believe MMO players should be more patient as there are many scenarios where a game has been rushed and has met its end. Therefore i believe that Arenanet should take its time to fully implement the astounding features that they have opened to the public.
