Guild Wars 2 is set to expand the gaming world of Guild Wars with new features that will make it among the most revolutionary games online. This Guild Wars 2 guide will take you through some of those features. It is important to remember that these features are in the development stage still and can change at any time.
One of the most exciting features will be the true to life 3D environments. With this feature, a player will experience enhanced game play over the previous Guild Wars and it will enhance the way the new story is being told to the player.
As a new feature, players can now determine the class and race of their characters. For races, players can choose from Sylvari, Norn, Charr, Asura and the Humans. As for classes, to date only the only the Warrior and Elementalist have been announced. As more classes are revealed, the Guild Wars 2 guide will be updated with these exciting new professions.
Character levels have been increased for the characters as well. As an exciting and revolutionary new feature to this concept, higher level players can transfer some of their available powers to lower level 'sidekick' characters, helping to make the game play more exciting. In addition players may enter a PVE environment having everyone against everything - called PvPvE - Player versus Player versus Environment. This is a concept that first appeared in NCSoft's Aion, and has proved to be a great success. Of course, the regular PVP feature will remain as well if the other is too much for one to handle. Another existing gamefeature, Guild vs. Guild battles, will remain in Guild Wars 2 as well.
Those who already have a registered name for their existing characters in Guild Wars will be able to transfer their name to Guild Wars 2 without any problems. Currently there is a reservation system available to allow them the rights to make it happen.
The Hall of Monuments is a portal that will allow users to transfer a limited number of achievements between Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2. It should be noted that this feature can be removed at anytime depending on how the designers want to pursue use of the new game. New features and content added to the existing game mean that it's becoming easier for players to add new achievements and items to their Hall of Monuments.
Another interesting feature is the class wars that the game will feature. Some classes will need to battle with others to advance in game play, while others must form an alliance together. The ultimate goal is to build a team to battle the elder dragons, including their leader Zhaitan.
In development since 2007, the anticipated release date for this is the first quarter of 2011 with beta testing starting in the fourth quarter of 2010. A demo for the game will be released in August of 2010 so players can sample the new offerings available.
With exciting new features such as character and profession selection along with an overall enhanced 3D environment, Guild Wars 2 is going to be the new online gaming system to beat. With no monthly fees, it will also be more affordable than similar titles available for MMO game play. In no time, there will be a new Guild Wars 2 guide available for players to be able to master the gaming system.
