One of their best videos yet. I particularly liked the music in the early part, and this video shows off a lot of things we’ve never seen before.
Okay so watch the trailer first, then come back to see what is so awesome about it.
I really liked getting to see Destiny’s Edge with the new Caithe and Zojja appropriately with her golem. I wonder if the functionality of Caithe jumping over that log is actually in game.
That rising undead ship was cool, as were the undead orrian marching ever so zombie-like towards the camera.
We finally get to see the airships. Tons of concept of airships, but no airships until now. Still it would be better if we got to ride them. We’ll see I guess.
That dragon coming out of the sea must be a similar animation to the Shatner coming out of the sky.
After the music shifts there is a lot of video from the skill featurettes but there are a couple of things to look for, like the necromancer elite skill. I hadn’t seen that before, but perhaps it was in the demo before now.
Plus we see an asura with a sword hacking away for the first time I think. Nice to see.
And then of course it’s our old friend, the Iron Forgeman. Somehow I knew we’d meet again.
I particularly like the shot of norn just before transforming into bears, then the pan up, and returning to them in bear form.
I have to admit I could watch a lot of Guild Wars 2 spell effects in slow motion.
I want to fight giants. Not ogres, not trolls, not jotun, big effing giants like that dude. That fight looks like it will be entertaining as hell.
Anyway that is the most impressive Guild Wars 2 release in a while, but as it is gamescom and just the first thing I’ve seen, I’m sure I’ll be posting more later today.
