As we mentioned a week ago, ArenaNet are bringing a new build of Guild Wars 2 to Gamescom next month and there’s a stack of new features on show.
Gamescom attendees are going to be in for a bit of a treat as ArenaNet are going to be showing off all seven professions and the Sylvari and asura for the very first time. It’s also great to see that ArenaNet will be premiering Guild Wars 2 PvP which is one aspect of the game they have kept under wraps,
Attendees can look forward to:
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: Play the Sylvari and Asura characters for this high level content for the first time. Players will be able to get their hands on these unique races.
Character appearance customization – For the first time, you’ll be able to play around with the character appearance customization feature and control the way your character looks.

This is probably the most extensive version of the game ArenaNet has shown so far and shows that game development is coming on leaps and bounds.
