While Guild Wars 2 adds a persistent world, it retains the unique characteristics of the original game, including a strong narrative, extensive instanced game play, an anti-grind design philosophy, and strong support for competitive play.

Guild Wars previous expansion pack, Eye of the North, provided a Hall of Monuments where players' accomplishments are memorialized and eventually inherited by their Guild Wars 2 characters, unlocking exclusive items and bonuses in Guild Wars 2.

  • Persistent world
  • Zone-wide events
  • Direct character control, with jumping and more freedom of movement, and increased environmental interaction
