I tend to play at least one MMO(RPG) at a time, but lately there was no game from the genre that could catch my full attention. With the release of Guild Wars 2 Feature Pack this week, I returned to the game to test up some of the new features.
Guild Wars 2 has progressed a lot since release (without a monthly fee), with new content updates in the form of Living Story episodes, new items and all kind of events and other interesting features. There is a lot to do in the game, despite not having a traditional MMORPG end-game.
This September Feature Pack enhanced the leveling experience to be more helpful for new players, revamped the trading post UI, added new achievements and many more. For a player like me who played Guild Wars 2 for a long time and has some certain expectations (where is the sPvP ranking system?!), this changes are not enough to keep me playing continuously. But hardcore players and the newcomers will enjoy the new features and will definitely improve their gameplay experience.
One thing I can say for sure about Guild Wars 2, even after all this time, World vs World is as fun, frustrating, laggy (this word doesn’t do justice to the slideshow fest that can happen in WvW) and full of zerging as always!
