Guild Wars 2 continues the expansive story set forth in the original Guild Wars game series. Like the original, Guild Wars 2 requires a purchase of the original game to play, but does not require a subscription fee.
Constantly Changing World: As the world experiences dynamic events in each zone and world-wide, based on the actions and activity of players and regularly occuring story events.
Action-Oriented Combat: Fast-paced combat requires attacking on the move, dodging enemy attacks, and tactical combat in real time against enemies great and small.
Personal Story: Each character has its own story, determined by player choices throughout the span of their character's lives.
Competitive Play: Multiple player versus player options keep the competition of the original strong, as players participate in small objective-based battlegrounds or enormous World versus World wars as servers compete for glory.
