Another hint at something "world exclusive" at gamescom.

http://www.computera...e-for-gamescom/

Quote

In a release sent out to press today, the company said in a statement: "As outstanding members of the gaming media community we'd love to invite you to join us for a World Exclusive Announcement and Press Briefing at our stand on Wednesday 17th August."

Mod note: Move to Gamer's Lair since this is confirmed as not GW2 related (It's the new Carbine MMO)

Squeeee! Man I so hope its a release or at least open beta date! Sadly I'll probably be out of contact with civilization that week.. I'm sure I'll find out the very first instant I get home though.

I'm thinking more like playabl PvP maps.  the Asura starter area, "class 8" or the Sylvari reveal.

Too much info is not released for there to be an open beta this summer.

If it is a release date it should be several months off so they have time to get GW2 ready, its just not yet unless they hid alot on fan day.  I agree if its a release date its more likely Blade & Soul.

the only thing they can announce is an open beta date since the release is tight to the outcome of the beta. and since ncsoft wants to announce sth is not unlikely its gonna be sth about blade and soul ... :S :S :S

World exclusive sounds a bit too grandiose for just small bits of info you mentioned. I guess we'll see in a month. :)

The Eighth class would be a big reveal actually.
But I'm all for hoping for an open-Beta. :D

Is B&S even in beta yet?

EDIT: Okay let's look at the facts here. Arenanet loves europe because they got a lot of their sales there. They showed off a GW2 for the first time there and unveiled the necro there too. So when thinking about it along these lines I'd wager that this might be a beta date reveal for GW2.

On the other hand, this might be the chance for people to finally get their hands on Aion patch version 3.0 or whatever that epic vision trailer was about. Or it could be them just showing off B&S for the first time in Europe.

My money is on B&S, Anet already said that the release date would come after the beta results. I wouldn't think the beta for GW2 is a world exclusive reveal. But here's to being wrong before, I hope I am :D

They haven't talked about PvP yet.. nor have we even seen much asura gameplay, nor the new sylvari. Multiple classes are going through reconstruction including the ranger, so I'm not thinking beta let alone release date. There is sooooo much still in the works for that to happen so soon.

I'm thinking Mesmer.

I don't think the people who wrote that article know any more about it than we do.  It sounds like the brief and completely ambiguous sentence they quoted was the length and bredth of the invitation.

Let's keep things in perspective.  Guild Wars 2 is not the only game under NCSoft.  Blade & Soul has been in closed beta since April; I wouldn't be at all surprised if this is publicity for that game.

Even if this is for Guild Wars 2, we already knew that they were planning "new surprises" for Gamescom.  This doesn't make any more clear what those surprises might entail.

im pretty sure we are getting the last prof before the end of the month based on the dates of the other prof releases, its been about 2 months break between for the last 3 profs.IM pretty sure we are prolly getting something more like the release date of the game or the open beta. They said the open beta will be closer to the game release date than usual, and for the campaigns in GW1, they were usually 2-3 months between, some im going with 1 months before release is the open beta, and the open beta will be like a week or something.

World exclusive to me would be more like release date/beta for GW2 or new preview/date on one of their other projects. I don't think they would trumpet world exclusive for a new class/race/mechanic, which are more for fans and also Anet's purview.

Ever thought that they may announce beta/release before going into other specifics/race weeks..?

Why can't they announce release date and have race week next week, why do we need all the info before release/beta?

Because the results of the closed beta will determine when the release date is going to be. It has nothing to do with race weeks.

I assume they could be done with a comfortable amount of work and don't need us to see any of it before they decide on a beta/release.

But I think given their likely hood to reveal things to the community when they are ready, suggest that if they haven't revealed it... it probably isn't ready.

Also with their policy to change key mechanics when they decide it isn't working suggest to me anyway that they wouldn't announce a release date/beta until what they already announced what wasn't working was fixed.

I guarantee its about B&S coming to europe because none of the others really classify as a world exclusive.

NCSoft would be really stupid, if the world exclusive and gw2 were not related. They can't be that stupid and I guess a world exclusive could be something about the extended experience and/or beta announcement.
