10 Most Anticipated PC Games of 2012 - #3 Guild Wars 2

3. Guild Wars 2

Why it might be good:
  • It's still subscription-free!
  • Now you get to play as different races
  • Each of your characters can have a tailored background story that offers different perks/benefits
  • Jeremy Soule is back to score the soundtrack
Why it might be bad:
  • It's taking a long time to release the game. While it's good to have a polished game, they can't afford to wait too long unless they want to risk the game being obsolete on release.
  • Arenanet are taking a lot of risks re-defining the MMORPG genre. I for one applaud it, but will it work? And will they convince others to give it a go?
Release Date:
2012 (Closed Alpha and Beta have apparently started)
