Yes, we are adding a first-person camera view.
Yes, we are adding an option to adjust the field of view.
But there is a whole lot more coming to the camera options on March 10. In addition to the first-person camera and field-of-view options, we’ll be adding better control over the camera’s positional offsets, a solution to camera snapping, and other features that you can read about below.

Four teams remain, having earned the right to play at the World Tournament Series Finals in Boston by proving to the world that they deserved to represent their regions. The ultimate test of skill, tenacity, and endurance still remains as the teams must clash one final time at the ESL Arena in Boston for the right to call themselves World Tournament Series champions.

In Guild Wars 2, there are many skills that we consider control skills because they control what an enemy can do. These skills can stun an enemy, make them run in fear, knock them down, or otherwise prevent them from moving and attacking as... [Read More]

Eye of Zhaitan's Avatar
Last year we worked with Overwolf, the company behind the Overwolf overlay software, to organize the Guild Wars 2 WvW App Challenge, the Overwolf WvW Streaming Contest, and the Overwolf WvW War Reporter Contest. They generated a lot of interesting applications, such as Rush Box, Markers, and GW2 Monster Hunter.

Today we’re partnering again with Overwolf to launch the Guild Wars 2 App Challenge. This time, application developers will have three months to work on their overlay, and they can make any Guild Wars 2 application they can imagine! It’s also another opportunity to use the Guild Wars 2 API to create more... [Read More]

» Lord Faren’s Rapier and Chickenado Finisher in the Gem Store!

After many trying months of working closely with Lord Faren, we’ve finally replicated his finely crafted blade. Ever the perfectionist, he wasn’t satisfied until the sword was exact. Now, we’re proud to present this noble’s rapier to you! We felt that the only way to truly honor such a valiant warrior’s sword would be to simultaneously release a chicken-themed finisher. And so, we also present the Chickenado Finisher!
