Guild Wars 2 demo details

In a new blog, ArenaNet details the Guild Wars 2 playable demo for those attending GamesCom and PAX

Posted on
In a new Guild Wars 2 design manifesto blog, Pat Cavit from ArenaNet has posted details about the upcoming GamesCom and PAX events. Those at the events will be able to get their hands on the first public playable version of Guild Wars 2.

Attendees will be able to play a human character starting at level 1, or a charr character starting at level 47. Players will get to experience the personal, branching story; you’ll get to band together with other players to defend human villagers and push back marauding centaurs in a variety of events; you’ll get to experience the active combat system and cross-profession combos; and you’ll have a huge open world to explore. Then, once you’re an expert at the game, come back and try playing again as a high-level charr. You won’t see as much story playing as a charr (to avoid spoilers) but instead you’ll have a wide variety of high-level skills to experiment with, and you’ll be able to participate in some truly epic battles.

As an added bonus, you will be playing together with members of the development team. The entire company will be playing the game remotely with trade show attendees during gamescom and PAX. In the case of gamescom, that’s going to be equivalent to a series of all-night LAN parties for ArenaNet West – they will be staying up from about 1:00 AM to 11:00 AM each day to play with you!

It’s a huge game world and a huge demo. To find out tons more details, check out the official
blog announcement.
