Our BWE #5 Coverage - Day 2 - Guild Wars -

Reed Hubbard has just turned in his report from Day 2 of the fifth Guild Wars Beta Weekend Event.  A preview is below:

Previous Guild Wars events, at least the ones I in which I have participated, have been all about showing off new technology and showcasing the game. The beta weekends, particularly this one, are about getting the game in shape to go live, or so it seems. Don’t get me wrong, that’s what a beta test is supposed to be, so I understand the lockups, the quirks, etc. I just hope the other players do, because I’m hearing more complaints this time around. Folks, remember that the game isn’t finished yet. It’s to be expected that everything isn’t perfect.

Regardless, Guild Wars is in a great state. Some games have shipped with less polish (sad, but true). The game’s storyline is more complete this time around. You start out at the end of Ascalon’s glory days. The Charr are invading and you are called to arms to defend your homeland. The first three or so levels you spend in a charming countryside with lush vegetation and quaint towns. After you hit level 3, you can enter the Academy for training, which is a PVP area that gives you a shot at what is the strongest part of Guild Wars – the player vs. player game.
