Guild Wars 2 Cinematic trailers – A Different Twist

We’ve grown tired of WOW and we were looking for something new to play online (or myself at least, I’ll get the rest of the team there someday) and I stumbled onto a Guild Wars 2 article. The first thing I do when I encounter a new game is have a look at the cinematic trailer and screenshots of the gameplay. I eventually found them on Youtube and realised they had a bunch of cinematic trailers for each race and the story arc itself, but with a different flare than the normal cinematic trailer.

I’ve read a lot of comments citing that the cinematics were the work of lazy designers, but I actually applaud the idea of the companies (ArenaNet and NCSOFT) trying something new. The Guild Wars 2 Cinematic trailers meld well with the overall game design and we really enjoyed the creative flair evident in all of them. If you enjoy game art then have a browse at their other designs (like the one above or this map). We enjoyed the cinematics so much that we’re going to share all of the races ( asura, charr, human, norn and sylvari) trailers.
