Guild Wars 2 2013 preview2012 was incredible for Guild Wars 2. The MMORPG, called by many as the best MMORPG in 2012 is most definitely going to get better in the new year.

He also proudly announced that ArenaNet has sold over 3 million copies of the MMORPG as of January 2013. Read on for details of his post along with a 3 minute preview video.


Guild Wars 2 : 2013 Preview

Guild Wars 2 is an amazing MMORPG, and if you ask me, it's the best of its genre in 2012. There is, of course, still room for improvements and new content. That seems to be covered by the developers too. If the development team can really achieve half of the features in Colin Johanson's list he posted on his blog today, Guild Wars 2 will probably be the best in 2013 as well.

So what do they have in store for us in 2013? According to Johanson's post, here is a summary of the new features we will see in Guild Wars 2 in the first six months of 2013;

  • Dynamic Event System will be improved. Guild Wars 2 offers players a unique experience everytime they login. Players are entered into a new map or an on-going event when they login. Developers will try to create a living world in 2013. Events and players will be reshaping Tyria in time. Johanson says they have partially done this with events like Lost Shores (which was a failure actually.) and Wintersday. Johanson says they will be buildin on Lost Shores and Wintersday and try create events with persistent content. Persistent content will encourage players of all levels join these events and get rewarded for going back and playing again.
  • The achievement system will be upgraded as well. The new system will have tokens for player achievements that can be turned into a reward from a list of rewards, including new reward types like ascended gear and infusions. When players complete specific parts of the game, there will be cosmetic rewards. (new too!)
  • Guild Wars 2 2013 preview
  • There will be new content to allow guilds to go on a mission together. New guild rewards, missions, and tools to allow guilds, of all sizes will be added to the game.
  • World vs World will be enhanced as well. In order to keep players loyal to one server/world, Guild Wars 2 will ask for a fee should the player decides to change worlds. There will also be time limitations to keep players on a server for a minimum amount of time. Improvements to culling will come too, as they are alredy being tested this month. 
  • PvE. PvP reward systems will be overhauled and the way PvP operates will be updated to give players more reasons to login and compete every day.The new matchmaking system will do a better job at matching players against only those with similar skills.
  • PvP. Players will be able to watch others playing and there will be an option to watch recorded ranked matches. New tournaments with better prizes are also on the roadmap for Q1 & Q2 2013.
