I imagine I’m not alone when I say that I’m pretty burned out on MMOs at this point. I’ve sunk an unhealthy amount of time into them, to be sure, but I struggle maintaining more than a professional interest in just about any MMO these days.
In the case of Guild Wars 2, though, I’d consider my excitement level to be pretty high at this point. Everything I’ve seen of it and heard about it just seems like a big step forward for the genre, one that is much needed to keep my interest.
Whether that will actually hold true when I get my hands on it remains to be seen, but for now, all I have are these 40 minutes worth of off-screen gameplay footage captured from Eurogamer Expo by TotalBiscuit.
in the two videos, we get a very extensive look at the game from the perspective of a level 59 Sylvari Necromancer. We get a rather good look at the Necromancer’s skills, and we even get a glimpse at some of the game’s dynamic events.
If that’s not enough for you, TotalBiscuit uploaded a third video showing off some Guild Wars 2 PVP gameplay with a Norn Thief.
You can check out all three videos in all their glory directly below.
Guild Wars 2 is currently set to release at some point in 2012.
