In defiance of an embargo until next week GameTrailers released some Thief videos, the 6th class of Guild Wars 2. As of right now those videos have been taken down but for the most part the cat is out of the bag. Plenty of details were revealed in the videos.
I’ll refrain from talking about it until the actual release date, but there are things I can talk about.
In a recent post I suggested something big was coming at PAX East. I’m glad that my ‘incredibly obvious to everyone’ prediction came true. Yay. The hint in the Eurogamer interview from January also means we can put more faith in those little comments they seem to make at times.
One thing that surprised me is the switch from assassin to thief. I was never convinced a name change was inevitable, although I admitted it was possible. Thief is certainly more classic fantasy and therefore falls into some of the other changes Guild Wars 2 is making. No secondaries, a more classic attribute system, and now thief.
Very little else I can get into without talking about next weeks details, but I felt that at the very least there was no point in just ignoring the whole affair.
Edit: Looks like the NDA/Embargo is coming down, so I’ll have more to say later.
Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
