If there was ever one thing that NCsoft did, that thing would be making a highly-successful MMORPG franchise. With many years in the making, Guild Wars 2 will see the light of day come the 28th of August 2012 in both Europe and North America.
With original Guild Wars sales topping more than 7 million units , Guild Wars 2 both redefines massively multiplayer online roleplaying games and is set up to put its predecessor to shame. With action-orientated combat, a complex world, customisable personal storylines, and intense Player vs. Player combat, Guild Wars 2 is projected to outsell the original title by far.
The biggest plus, and most important, change is that Guild Wars 2 supports a shared online world where players work together as allies instead of as rivals — all with no monthly subscription fee. Now if only some other people could give so much without those daunting monthly fees. Yes, we’re looking at you Blizzard.
