Guild Wars 2 hits pre-order

Fans of online role-playing games will be glad to hear that Guild Wars 2 is now up for pre-order. The game is set to launch on August 28 for the PC and is a fantasy MMORPG. The game focuses on player versus player combat just as the original Guild Wars did. One interesting thing about the new game is that the storyline is responsive to the player's actions.

Typically, online role-playing games have a fixed storyline the goes on regardless of player actions. Having a storyline that changes with the player's actions is usually limited to single player games. The video game is set in the same world of Tyria where the original game took place in. Events in the new video game take place 250 years after the defeat of the Great Destroyer from Guild Wars: Eye of the North.

The premise of this game is that a race of dragons awoke from slumber deep under the earth and run rampant, destroying Tyria. The game sees all five races on the planet working together using magic, technology, and the blade to defeat dragons. The original Guild Wars was released in April 2005 and proved popular.
