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:
