Guild Wars 2 Weekly

Guild Wars 2 Weekly banner

A somewhat slow week, the largest news were that ArenaNet will run a Guild Wars 2 stress test on Wednesday June 27th, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. PDT (GMT-7). A short stint during European prime time. All thumbs are held that BWE3 will be announced soon thereafter.

In other news, long-time ArenaNet artist Kekai Kotaki will be leaving the company shortly, leaving with the profound quote “For all I have done here, this is all I have done”. After eight years it is understandable that he wants to do something else, but he will for sure be missed by the Guild Wars 2 fans who have come to adore his style.

Other than that the week saw a blog post by Colin Johanson about ArenaNet’s “Is it fun?“, philosophy on game design, we got an inside peek on the ArenaNet studio and RPGamer published an interview with Chris Whiteside and Eric Flannum.
