ArenaNet @ Comic-Con

ArenaNet have recently announced their plans at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. With loads of Guild Wars 2 action planned, it’s sure to be an action-packed weekend! Read on to see what they’ve got planned…

It’s almost time for San Diego Comic-Con, that annual celebration of all the good things in life. We love Comic-Con, so this year we’re packing our bags and heading south to the San Diego sunshine – and we’re bringing some Guild Wars 2 action with us! Read on for a break down of ArenaNet’s plans for this year’s Comic-Con!

Here’s what we’ve got planned this year:

The Booth

ArenaNet staffers like Concept Art Team Lead Kekai Kotaki, Lead Content Designer Colin Johanson and other artists and devs will be hanging out and talking with fans at the NCsoft Booth (#5345) during Comic-Con. Come say hi and try your hand at Guild Wars 2 on PCs provided by our partners Alienware with peripherals from our friends at Razer. Here’s the full schedule for the booth.

NCsoft San Diego Meet and Greet

On Friday, July 22 in the evening we’ll be hosting the NCsoft San Diego Meet & Greet, a limited ticketed event we’re throwing for NCsoft fans in San Diego. Guests can meet developers and artists, enjoy some refreshments, and get their hands on City of Heroes Freedom and Guild Wars 2. We’ll even be giving away prizes from our partners Razer and NVIDIA.  How do you get a ticket? Well, you have to be 21 and you have to stop by the NCsoft booth (#5345) and speak the code word for a chance at a limited ticket. What’s the code word? Let’s just say that you might want to keep an eye on our Twitter feed

Alienware Mobile LAN Tour

Don’t have a ticket to Comic-Con? Well you can still join the fun! Stop by Petco Park at the D1/D2 parking lot to check out the Alienware Mobile LAN Tour. It’s a big customized H1 Hummer stocked with PCs for you to play Guild Wars 2 on – we hear they’ll even have giveaways and activities, so check it out from July 21-24.

The Panel

ArenaNet devs and artists will be conducting a panel on Saturday to give attendees a deeper understanding of Guild Wars 2. In our panel, Rethinking the Online RPG: How Guild Wars 2 Explores New Dimensions in Social Gaming, we’ll take a look at how Guild Wars 2 is re-thinking MMO conventions and answer your questions.  It all happens on Saturday, July 23 from 2PM to 3PM in Room 23 ABC.

As you can see, it’s going to be a busy weekend, and we can’t wait to get started. See you at the Con!
