Guild Wars II Thief Revealed

A trailer revealing the Thief class in Guild Wars II appeared briefly on the 'net today before disappearing like a thief in the night, but Eurogamer has word that ArenaNet unveiled this new class during their Guild Wars II presentation at GDC. They have word that this character has many of the characteristics you would expect including being especially dangerous when catching opponents off-guard, possessing the ability to hide in the shadows, and, you know, steal stuff. They say he can also dual-wield daggers, swords and pistols.

There are some great vids at Gametrailers.com from GDC. The more I see of this game the more I like. They really are trying to get away from WoW style MMOGs with some fantastic 'other developers should have thought of this a decade ago' innovations.

They did that with the first game - one shard, (almost) no leveling and horizontal expansions so the game world stays populated, no "treasure hunting" so the PVP was about tactics rather than farming, all the races are human, etc.

The info about the second one indicate they are actually moving away from that - level cap of 80 (because WoW has it), guns (because WoW has them), silly fantasy races (admittedly EoTN added them into GW), jumping (which has no part in what was basically a card game for tactical PVP), etc. It's all a little worrying. GW succeeded because it was unique. Making it into another generic fantasy MMO would be a horrible loss.

FYI the youtube video is only one of three parts that go into a good bit of depth.

I hope Rift does go free, 'cause I like free games. Granted I've not played much DDO or LoTRO these days. As for GW2, I'm looking forward to it also. I'm glad we'll be able to jump this time. Not sure why it bugs me so much when I can't jump in games.
