Guild Wars 2 will demo ‘challenging group content’ at PAX

    
40

Guild Wars 2 fans heading to PAX Prime later this month will find a lot to do with their favorite MMO.

ArenaNet said that the game will be the focus of an August 29th press and fan conference that will contain major announcements about the game’s future and the reveal of Heart of Thorns’ new “challenging group content” that’s been teased. The conference will be in the Hydra Theatre at 1:30 p.m. EDT and also be streamed on the Guild Wars 2 Twitch panel.

For those tooling around on the expo floor, you’ll want to swing over to Corsair’s booth at #3342. Guild Wars 2 will have a demo set up there and promised to be doing giveaways during the weekend.

SoMuchMass McGuffn Greaterdivinity PvP ? At gamescom you could play the new showed zone of HoT plus play PvP too.
Ofc they couldn’t go around letting you play challenging content, when it wasn’t announced yet.

Indeed, personal loot make the fight irrelevant, but even though… people are totally capable of waiting in line.
I did that in FFXIV and TESO when things were buggy, worked just fine.

Open world is the very definition of MMO. If it’s just an instance for your group, it’s just a lobby game (which arguably is what all themeparks have become).

Huh? They broke it for a while when they changed world bosses for the new copndition mechanics, but now it’s just fine.
Triple Trouble is far more difficult and require an organized group though.

So now you need to dodge both before and after the tell?

The title is confusing, it has been said that the DEMO will be only about GW2, no GW2:HoT.
therefore, no challenging content in demo form for PAX

Dystopiq At those prices I don’t think you will see many investing until just before launch.

I’m more concerned about the lack of new fractals.
The only thing with very generous droprates and unique loot is getting real stale.
