With San Diego Comic Con now behind us, we shift our focus across the Atlantic to gamescom, Europe's largest game expo. This annual celebration of games and entertainment takes over Cologne once again from August 17-21, and we're going to be there in full force - and we're bringing a shiny new GW2 demo with us!
The new demo will feature a ton of cool new content that we haven't showcased before. "What exactly is in the gamescom demo, Martin?" I hear you say. Well, I'm glad you asked. Let me give you a high level overview of what you will be able to play at the NCsoft Booth (A11/B10, Hall 9.1).
Seven professions - Play all seven professions that we've revealed so far: engineer, thief, guardian, necromancer, ranger, warrior, and elementalist.
Charr starter experience - For the first time, you can forge your destiny as a member of the Iron, Ash, or Blood Legion in our charr starter area. You can also choose to play the human and norn starting experience as well.
Mid level demo - As always, we've prepared a higher level demo experience for players who want a challenge. Face powerful Orrian enemies on land, engage them in battle underwater and face off against a new boss.
Sylvari and Asura - Did I mention that you'll be playing sylvari and asura characters for this high level content? Yes, for the first time, players will be able to get their hands on these unique races - believe me, they are impressive!
Character appearance customization - Also for the first time, you'll be able to play around with our character appearance customization feature and control the way your character looks.
PvP - Last but certainly not least, we're premiering Guild Wars 2 Player vs Player (PvP) at gamescom! Swing by the ESL booth and head to the Guild Wars 2 area to get your exclusive hands-on PvP experience. Also check out our periodic exhibition matches that pit our valiant team of ArenaNet developers against the European guild Boon Control on the ESL center stage!
We hope that you are now as excited about gamescom as we are. If you can't make it to gamescom this year, you might want to check out the latest issues of these magazines for more info: Buffed, PC Gamer UK, Canard PC, Gamereactor, PC Gameplay Benelux.
And don't forget about our Costume Competition on Sunday, August 21!

It looks amazing.
