Does anyone know if Anet are going to make any special announcement at Gamescom this year. I would really love to so them announce one of their ‘special projects’ that we can’t hear about yet. For one, it would really give some excitment and hype for the players in the game and also it would help maintain the level of excitment people have towards the most recent patch coming ‘The Queens speech’. Obviously this would give some publicity to the game and hopefully attract new players and maybe even bring in the old players which have stopped playing. Anyways, if anyone have any idea if there is going to be any announcement from Anet about Guild wars 2.

Thanks Grimble.

We won’t have a major presence at Gamescom this year no, though a number of senior staff will be flying out to attend the community party that weekend at Gamescom to meet everyone and share a few beers. Make sure to stop by if you’re there for the show!

Somewhat related, if you’re even thinking of being in the Seattle are this year during PAX: you absolutely will not want to miss our ArenaNet PAX event. Not only will it include our PvP championship live on stage, we’ll have some other reveals you’re not going to want to miss…stay tuned! (and no the reveal is not an expansion!)

Finally you get to reveal to the world that Necromancers are getting jetpacks. Right?

That sound? That’s the sound of shattered dreams :P

I reckon the reveal is going to be:

  • Aniversary sales figures
  • Some sort of massive content reveal (possibly how the current LS ties together)

+1.

Although I think for all it’s worth revealing hints to more of these unknown updates are at best just more opportunities to bring hype to GW2, which I’m sure many of us are (especially those who’s been around GW2 forum since pre-orders last april) fairly use to seeing by now.

I will be making the drive to Gamescom in Köln in a few days. It’s a shame there won’t be any huge GW2 announcements at this one, but I will be looking out for Anet devs if I can find the right community party. Anet is long overdue for my sincerest high five awarded for outstanding achievement in entertainment.

‘(and no the reveal is not an expansion!)’

That basically confirms there will be an expansion, although it may not come soon. It shows that they know that there’s a huge amount of players that demand an expansion. They can’t avoid it if they don’t want lots of people to be dissapointed in the future.

Will the event/announcement be broadcast live? I know the championship final will be, but I hope the announcement is too…
And my guess is that it won’t be a new race or profession, but something of an addition to the current way we play. More in the line of WvWvW or general play styles.

*gvg as in the game mode that defined gw1

You mean the GvG that wasn’t there from the getgo in guild wars 1, is that what defined guild wars 1?, an area of the game not even in the release?.

Though the PvP defined guild wars 1 not “just” GvG, though PvE did get better when Factions came about but PvP was always the more fun of the 2 in Guild wars 1.

Okay, so i REALLY hope it’s either Dervish, some other profession and/or Tengu, or that is the new weapon thing they have talked about.

I expect that the “reveal” will not be much more than confirmation of things we already knew were in the works. Ascended gear related stuff, etc.

Or new blingy gem-store stuff (this would not surprise me at all as being qualified as a “reveal” by Anet management)
