[PCgamer] Guild Wars 2 preview - Page 5

post #41 of 76
I'm more interested (right now) to find out what the remaining two roles are..
The release date is pretty deductible to be honest, beta coming out 99% sure sometime in 3rd or 4th Q, according to the latest interviews with the developers, so by their words it should be at the EARLIEST december 2011 or jan-march 2012.
it's a long time but what can you do...

I bought the four pack set of Guild Wars and all its expansions but never found enjoyment in it. Something about the way questing was made me feel like I was playing a cheaper World of Warcraft.

I will take a look at GW2, as I have done with DC Universe Online, Warhammer Online, RIFT, and other MMO's, I always given them a tryout period.

I agree, that seems to be the most plausible launch window as of now. It probably leans more towards early 2012, but 2011 is not quite completely out of the question.

We will get a little more insight today, since apparently there is a public conference/shareholder meeting or whatever and they will have the most accurate release window for the game. How big that window will be? How confident are they? Those things remain to be seen.

Im considering buying GW1 and all the expansions again soon....i feel as though i am missing out and then maybe it will get my hopes up for GW2
I am really thinking about going and picking up the trilogy as well. If you do decide to pick it up, maybe we can all get on the same server and roll through content Overclock style.

You will meet me at dawn, pistols or knives.

definitely try to get someone else playing with you makes the experience much better. And you probably wont find any random groups anymore since almost every GW1 player is in the endgame scene.

I don't know. I got to where I was almost always running with Heroes and Henchman because my friends and guildies were on less often. Although, I have to say, I had a lot of fun a couple times when my buddy and I rolled a bunch of HM missions using a 4xNec + 3xRit + Imbagon team... muwahaha. That was the night I got Legendary Guardian.
