A Truly Living World
Adventure in a living and ever-expanding world that is constantly evolving with new and frequent content updates!
Explore an ever-changing fantasy world where your actions have a real and persistent effect on your surroundings. Dynamic events respond and change based on how you react to them. Will you defend that village from rampaging centaurs or let it burn? The choice is yours!
Your personal story begins with key decisions you make when creating your character’s biography and then evolves with each fateful choice you make in the game. You decide who lives, who dies and what path you’ll walk in life, and those choices have a lasting effect on both your personal story and your private home instance.
Experience a new kind of high-impact, fast-paced combat. Attack on the move, dodge and roll away from enemy blows, team up with other players for powerful combos, take advantage of handy environmental weapons, and unleash spectacular skills and spells. Guild Wars 2 is putting the fun back into fantasy combat.
Only the most experienced groups of adventurers dare enter the dungeons, huge private adventure areas where the risks are immense but the rewards are great. Dungeons take many forms, but in each you follow a gripping plot in story mode and then branch into the even more challenging free-roaming explorable mode.
Face off against small teams of other players in intense matches where skill and audacity determine the victor. Battle over key objectives on a wide variety of maps loaded with game-changing secondary objectives like cannons and trebuchets. Make a name for your team during the daily, weekly and annual PvP tournaments.
Prepare for battlefield combat on an epic scale! In world vs. world, armies of hundreds of players from competing servers wage war across four sprawling maps, seizing objectives and scoring points for their side. Lay siege to castles, raid enemy supply caravans, build weapons of war and clash with other players in truly massive battles. There’s always something to do on the battlefield and new players can start WvW right away!
Get the game and play online for as long as you want. It's that simple.
Something for everyoneDario1902 | Dec. 6, 2013 | See all Dario1902's reviews »
Guild wars 2 is really something different than other mmorpgs out there. First account I bought was in January, I encountered "problem" at the beginning not being able to pick race/profession because all seemed awesome.
Picking first profession I started playing game and the more I played the more I was amazed. Since I came from different type of mmo (World of Warcraft) I was sceptical how will this work with so "little" skills I have to use. As I played I learned everything, from blast combos, questing, activities and all that on my own so when we talk about learning curve this game has very beneficial learning curve for new players. When I first time encountered World boss (pretty early in game around lvl 15) I had goose bumps, because one moment I was doing some caravan escort with other players in starting zone not expecting anything to happen, next moment you see something HUGEEEE appearing and we are all running there, literally there was 50-80 ppl doing the world boss event.
Game is really amazing, although at some point you will feel bored since there is no actual end game content everyone is used to in other mmos. Game constantly gets updated and most of all, game developers actually read feedback from their users making game better.
Like all games this one is not perfect either, there are things that can be annoying, depending on play style, since recently arena net made some changes making this game less casual as they promoted it.
Bottom line is, there is plenty of stuff to do and get you involved, from amazing PVE content to legendary WwWwW fights that involve over hundred people and of course competitive PvP in arena that everyone is familiar with, this game will definitely keep you occupied for more than 1000 hours of gameplay, I know it did me.
A lovely MMOJossuda | Nov. 6, 2013 | See all Jossuda's reviews »
Guild Wars 2 is a stunning and interesting MMO and for me, it's one of the best MMO-s out there. The visuals and audio is magnificent and i just loved the colors and music, that this game has. The storyline is quite good and has lots of interesting and not so typical missions and objectives so luckily it doesn't get repetitive. For me, the best part is the WvWvW. Me and my friends spent hours in there. Just capturing towers and supply camps and defending castles. In WvWvW the combat shines, the boons start playing a role and dodging becomes an important part of the game. You can have very long battles and fight a long time and it just doesn't tire you. The reason why i like Guild Wars is because it is different, isn't a monthly subscription and is a fun experience. For me, Guild Wars is a shining and fun MMo
A disappointmentThoosa | Sept. 9, 2013 | See all Thoosa's reviews »
I bought this game right when it came out, back in I guess it was September last year. Honestly, I am still regretting the money i spent on it. The game was over - hyped and I was watching everything I could about it. I was really really pumped to get into it, so I installed it and... Well, personally, I thought it was mediocre at best. I was through many MMOs in the past, spent a few years in WoW, a year or so in LoTRO and even in SWTOR. But I only spent a few days in GW2, trying to find out what was almost everyone seeing in it. Where was the revolutional combat ? I mean, it was not appealing at all to me. Sure, there are no monthly subscription fees, but what to do in a game that bores you to death ? Everything I have seen in it was done better before. Maybe it got better after the initial release, but I probably will not be able to force myself to get back into it.
Quite a fun game.JetShredz | Aug. 25, 2013 | See all JetShredz's reviews »
I have been playing Guild Wars 2 since it's release, the game is still enjoyable. The best part of the game is the use of dynamic events throughout the playable areas. In one area, you protect a convoy, another you're fighting a dragon. It's an amazing sight seeing you and at least 100 more people taking on a dragon during the same dynamic event. Not to mention that there are monthly events going on, sadly they have dipped in quality since Halloween which was without a doubt, my favourite event in an MMO game. Give Guild Wars 2 a try.
Doesnt meet expectationsIluminatro | Aug. 21, 2013 | See all Iluminatro's reviews »
This game is beautiful, the effects and the world are beautifully designed. Visually its stunning and the music and sounds are of high quality.
The game offers many features and the combat is more action heavy than normal MMOs but it still doesnt reach the likes of TERA for example. Still its good fun to play and the classes differ greatly, each with its own set of skills.
Throughout the story you make choices that impact and lead the story along the way. This makes for a great variety for every new character and deepends your immersion within the game.
However, in my opinion this game gets boring really quickly after one character and the initial fun wears off quickly. It was hyped really hard before it came out, but cant meet those expectations in the long run.
