Guild Wars 2 Announced

MSNBC’s Kristin Kalning calls it “an experiment that worked.” Guild Wars can run profitably without server fees because most of its game world is instantiated, cutting down data center costs.

  1. There it is, I’ve been wondering when you will post this, knowing you’re a GW fan (than WoW :p )

    Now that GW2’s going MMO, I have even less reason to switch to WoW. Expect GW2’s virtual economy to become far more vibrant than GW’s.

    Of course, I’m sure AMDG won’t have a problem with that, seeing as they’ll probably be selling both in the Philippines.

    On a related note, wonder if Ragnarok 2 will sport a similar New Game Plus feature.

    An MMORPG player with hot women. Cool! Just like Vin Diesel and Dungeons and Dragons. AMDG is still active? Nice! Last time I checked with them they won’t sell me Warcraft: RoC and WC: FT as they only sell wholesale; major bummer.

    I made a post about Guild Wars 2 MMORPG: http://imbacore.blogspot.com/2009/08/guild-wars-2-mmorpg-first-look.html but I’ve a question to ask: if you’ve never played Guild Wars before, will it be necessary to play the first one? And if you’re a completist like me, does buying and playing the first one introduce you to a game world devoid of players (now that Guild Wars 2 is in the works)?

    • Mike Abundo says:

      Playing the first Guild Wars probably won’t be necessary, but it will definitely help. Not only will experiencing story of the first game enhance your appreciation of the game world’s history, earning achievements in the first game will actually give you benefits in the second game.

      ArenaNet will continue to support Guild Wars once Guild Wars 2 is out. I’ll probably continue to log into Guild Wars once in a while, if only to earn more achievements for benefits in Guild Wars 2. I expect many veteran players to do the same. 😉

      By the way, I didn’t know Vin Diesel played Dungeons and Dragons. That’s just so many levels of awesome. Thanks for the fun fact! 🙂
