Gamescom 2011: ArenaNet Shows Off Guild Wars 2 Gameplay, Bosses and Character Creation (and Boxers)

At Gamescom 2011 ArenaNet displayed a quite extensive press demo of Guild Wars 2 and captured it on film.

The 40 minutes-long video shows off some interesting aspects of the game like character creation, the Charr starting experience, underwater combat  and a boss fight against a large dragon.

Some nice tidbits also include the ability to dodge incoming blows, the “no dedicated healers” gameplay and the feature that lets players dye their clothes and armor from the very beginning, remembering the color scheme they chose when they change equipment. And let’s not forget the Megalaser!

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. 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.
