Guild Wars 2 gamescom assets are just gorgeous

Wednesday, 17th August 2011 14:30 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

ArenaNet and NCSoft have released a bevy of screenshots for Guild Wars 2 along with a gamescome trailer showing off the game’s combat system.

In the video below, you’ll see concept art mixed with the starting areas for each race, and then it gets into some lovely PvE combat set to some tranquil piano music.

The screens below feature some environments, character race renders and both PvP and PvE. There are around 79 shots in all, so take your time looking them over.

This game just seems to get lovelier and lovelier all the time.

Guild Wars 2 still doesn’t have an exact date, but a beta is expected soon.

    Okay, shots are in there now. Good lord that took ages.

    The only screen shot that impresses me is 31 or Lions_Arch_10 and the female human model near the bottom…. The trailer was OK, but really nothing too spectacular imo.

    @2 you are ridiculous. This is more design (original design) work that any mmo has ever done by far. These screens take a big steaming dump on what Blizzard was previously known to be good at. Most developers come out with amazing concept art but never put in the time or money to actually make the game look that way, and Guild Wars 2 and ArenaNet have raised the bar without even having a release date, let alone is released.

    Of course Mr. 2 is being ridiculous. It’s patently obvious trolling. If you gathered a massive focus group of people from various cultures and walks of life and asked them whether these visuals were beautiful, you’d get a resounding yes.

    All I can imagine is that either Mr. 2 is trolling (as I would hope is the case, optimistically), or Mr. 2 thinks that the height of creativity and escapism is a man in a uniform with a phallic instrument of death shooting other men in uniforms with similar phallic instruments of death. That would be depressing. So Mr. 2 is obviously trolling. I say this to retain my faith in humanity.
