I've not had a chance yet to look at Guild Wars 2, as the damn beta weekends and load tests are all remarkably badly timed. But one our MMO pals has had a chance with the game, and from his reports, it sounds like something to watch.
And now we know when to watch for, as local distie QVS has announced the game's release date. We'll be getting some Guild Wars 2 goodness on the 28th of August!
“We’re offering gamers an experience that delivers on the promise of online gaming with a truly social experience in an immense, shared world,” said Mike O’Brien, president and co-founder of ArenaNet, in today's release. “After five years of creation, development, and polish, announcing the launch date of Guild Wars 2 is a huge milestone for us, but the thing we’re most looking forward to is seeing gamers from all over the globe explore this world and begin creating their own stories.”
