With this trailer, ArenaNet decided to use a blend of pseudo real-life and in-game footage. You can decide if you think it works. Personally, I love it.
This is the official trailer for Guild Wars 2, the sequel to the beloved and bestselling MMORPG Guild Wars, developed by ArenaNet and published by NCsoft.
Guild Wars 2 features a visually stunning, AAA persistent fantasy MMO world while retaining the subscription-free business model that has made Guild Wars so popular. Guild Wars 2 is the deepest, most advanced MMO on the market and delivers the full MMORPG experience with robust PvE and PvP, dynamic combat, and a unique storytelling device.
Acclaimed Director James McTeigue (V for Vendetta) was brought on board to lend his revolutionary zeal and craftsman’s eye to the launch trailer. Guild Wars 2’s tagline “Our Time Is Now” is vividly brought to life as seekers in our world take the fight for change in Tyria.
