Guild Wars 2 Underwater Combat Details

The ArenaNet Blog features a discussion of underwater combat in Guild Wars 2 from game designer Jonathan 'Chaplan' Sharp, offering screenshots showing off underwater environments and weapons, as well as a full outline of how this will work. There are also new impressions of the game floating around, as ArenaNet recently demonstrated the upcoming MMORPG sequel to a bunch of sites, who got to experience this aquatic aspect of the game firsthand. There are previews on G4tv.com, Massively, MMORPG.com (where they also have an ArenaNet Studio Tour), and PC Gamer. There's also an underwater combat video on GameSpot, and Guild Wars 2 Slovenija has clips with a pair of dungeons from the game.

Ok, so someone from the team played WoW:Cat... I really never liked the water level...Nothing new here to see...move along! lol

You didn't even watch the video did ya? If you had you'd see it's 'very' different from WoW's underwater gameplay.

Yeah... WoW's underwater gameplay had no special abilities, so you'd still be firing a gun underwater, lol. Not to mention the underwater breathing item as either a craftable potion or a petrified turd (no joke) that you ate.

GW2 is also going to have special underwater pets for the pet classes too.

It's not jumping the shark, it's taming the shark which is..... pretty damn cool.
