Gamescom 2011: A new Guild Wars 2 Trailer Depicts the “Epic Struggle”

on August 17, 2011 1:00 PM

NCsoft was present in full swing at Gamescom 2011 and they granted the news-starved Guild Wars 2 fanbase a new trailer to ogle upon.

The video shows a lot of cinematic action and includes some great views of the game’s environments and monsters.  As usual, when I see something related to Guild Wars 2, I’m extremely impressed by the overall art style and by the visuals when displayed by a cinematic, panning camera from afar. Unfortunately things become quite a lot less impressive when seen from close by and the low resolution and detail of the textures start to show.

Luckily ArenaNet still seems to have a lot of time to polish that aspect and impress me fully, as NCsoft didn’t take advantage of Gamescom to announce a firm release date, in the meanwhile you can see the trailer after the cut:

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
