As some already know, Gamescom has been popping with GW2 activity over the last few days. Having previewed some of the basic mechanics through the videos; map function, npc interaction, event system, combat, and movement to name a few. Also, the Necromancer class has been confirmed but not yet posted on the main site.
+ This is the first unofficial video that came out. Showing some of the Charr (level 47) gameplay. It looks like you’re in the Dragonbrand, manning (or charring) a Charr outpost/fortress thingy. Inclusion of the “everyone can res/revive” function as well as the map warp function.
+ A no audio example of interaction with an NPC. I wish I could read what the conversation was about, but I can’t squint that well. However, this video does provide a glance at the Character Info window as well as the Quest Log window. A look around Divinity’s Reach. You’ll also get to see some more of their very interactive map.
+ Some Necromancer footage.
+ Elementalist in a group setting. Some discussion about the unique “mode” Necromancer’s can switch into. Also, a look at the climactic Dynamic Events system.
+ The first cinematic for Guild Wars 2. Elementalist point of view.
+ Bonus: Behind the scenes of the creation of the intro cinematic.
+ Elementalist in the starting Human area.
+ A look at the Character Creation. The paw icon is the Ranger class, I’m assuming.
+ Boss fight, The Shatterer. Quality is low and the background noise is…noisy. However, you get a glimpse of a larger scale fight and the “downed state” abilities. :)
[Update 8/18/10 5:48 pm PST] – Found some more videos from the Guild Wars 2 Guru forums. There were several other videos I didn’t include because I didn’t feel they provided anything further than what was already shown.
Well that’s all I could muster up for the time being. If you happen to find any other videos go ahead an email me a link and I will gladly post it here, with much appreciation.
