It is fair to say that this has been a very slow summer of games, but things are picking up again, and one game which I have managed to lose track of is Guild Wars 2. The non-subscription MMO is coming out next Tuesday, though if you have pre-ordered from the official site you get access three days early.
I’m not normally a fan of MMOs, the traditional monthly subscription format has put me off and I haven’t delved into any of the new free-to-play titles which are taking over the world. But Guild Wars 2 has me interested, promises of a fast-paced combat system and engrossing storyline have me tempted. However, I baulked at the idea of spending £49.99 for the digital edition and went for the traditional approach of a supermarket pre-order. I might hate it when I get into the game, or I may love it, but I am going to take the plunge to try and conquer my MMO fear. Anyone else taking the plunge?
