Guild Wars 2 – Underwater combat footage, much more

Tuesday, 28th June 2011 00:10 GMT By Patrick Garratt

We saw the effortlessly amazing Guild Wars 2 in Germany today. Check out this media avalanche while we’re waiting for Stace’s report from the MMO’s Hamburg showing,

Firstly, there’s a story trailer, giving background of the human king and his cursing of a city in the face of a charr assault. You’re the reinforcements. You better hope you brought your extra special sword. The one that kills ghosts.

Secondly, here’s eight minutes non-stop combat, from both the catacombs set up in the story trailer and the underwater sections first revealed by ArenaNet last night.

There’s an absolutely lunatic level of detail going on in this footage. Watch it. The aqua action starts at 7.05.

And, lastly, look below for all the screens and art from today’s event, showing the catacomb and underwater sections in all their still glory.

Stace will have a full report on the content he saw in Germany today as soon as he can.

Be prepared for publisher NCsoft to push Guild Wars 2 very hard at gamescom in August. There’s no date on it yet, but you will get a beta this year.

Check out Steph’s report on the game’s demo from GDC here. Now you see why she was so impressed.

    Love the underwater style, really sold the game to me seeing how much care and details gone into it. The effort to take away pretty crap features like a breathing meter in favour of a breathing aparatus is a stroke of genius imo.

    Love the look of the new footage, the underwater combat reminds me of a better quality Monster Hunter, which isn’t a bad thing. ^_^

    I’m pumped for this game (and TOR), I just want to get my grubby little MMO loving paws all over it.

    Also: Charr look totally badass.

    Stace says he should have the content done by the end of the day.

    Cool. Would like to see more videos with the UI showing – the action video was good but i’d of prefered seeing the UI, it felt a little strange without it.
