New Guild Wars 2 blog details activities

Games Within the Game

Posted on
Much like the original Guild Wars, the sequel is set to include numerous mini-games that add to the player experience, though not affecting the game world directly. In a new blog released today on the official website, Eric Flannum - lead designer - has posted a ton of new information about Activities in the upcoming MMO.
 
The following are a few interesting excerpts from the blog: 
In the capital cities of the five playable races, you’ll find a variety of fun activities that are unique to each location. These are our mini-games, and they cover a wide range of game styles.

Are you looking to prove yourself against others in tests of skill? Sure, we’ve got that. How about team based games? Yeah, we’ve got those, too. What about an out-of-control free-for-all? You’d better believe we’ve got that too. No matter your interests, you’ll find an activity that appeals to you, and best of all, activities aren’t restricted by level. A new character is going to be just as effective at playing an activity as a max-level character with all of the best gear that the game has to offer.

Activities offer us an exciting chance to engage in one of a designer’s favorite pastimes: breaking things. These mini-games let us use the existing rules and mechanics of Guild Wars 2 in different and interesting ways, or they let us throw the established mechanics out the window entirely for the sake of creating something new!

To read the full blog for tons more details, see this page. Guild Wars 2 is set to release some time in 2011.
