Guild Wars 2 is a fantasy MMORPG currently in development by ArenaNet, as a sequel to their episodic Guild Wars game series. It was announced in 2007 alongside the final Guild Wars expansion Eye of the North. The game takes place in the Guild Wars fantasy world of Tyria, 250 years after the players defeat the Great Destroyer in the Eye of the North expansion. Five elder dragons, sleeping beneath the continent, have awoken causing widespread destruction to Tyria and corrupting its inhabitants. Old and new races alike have begun to rise in the resulting power vacuum. Old cities have been destroyed and rebuilt, kingdoms seized and reformed by new rulers. The advancement of time is reflected in the changes in culture, including armor and clothing as well as in the advancement of in-game technology. The player is tasked with uniting the different player races which is required to be able to effectively combat the elder dragons. The game primarily focuses on the combat against only one of these dragons, Zhaitan. Many of these races will clash, as well as unite to accomplish what new challenges Guild Wars 2 has to offer.
Release Date: August 28, 2012
