As NCSoft and ArenaNet have in the past with other races from their upcoming MMO sequel Guild Wars 2, this week they’re spending some time to fill us all in on a rather new race to the the world – the Sylvari. They’re a race of tree-people (my term, not theirs) who were “born” about twenty-five years previous to the events in Guild Wars 2. The Sylvari are added to the already decent list of races to chose from including Norn, Asura, Charr and Humans.
I’m getting more and more excited about the different things this MMO is bringing to the table, and it all started back when I was given a demo of the game at PAX East. If you want to learn more, head on over and read up about the Sylvari. You can also find a couple of really cool pieces of artwork you can use as wallpaper for your PC at the official site. There’s no release date on Guild Wars 2 at the moment, although it seems they’re hoping to get a beta up and running by the end of the year.
