Guild Wars 2 Manifesto Video

posted in: Game News 0

Another day, another video.

Guild Wars was my first and only “MMORPG”. It wasn’t really any MMO though since it was instanced. Guild Wars 2 is addressing that along with many other things which traditional MMORPG haters gripe out about including grinding and repetitive missions.

Guild Wars 2 will continue the tradition of no monthly fees which is a big plus in my books. But will ArenaNet substitute monthly fees with expansion packs like they did with the original or will they go the micro-transaction route? I’m hoping for the latter which I heard they started to do with the original.

For more info on Guild Wars 2, visit the official website. There’s no release date as of yet.
