Click here for the original Guild Wars 2 FAQ.
June 27, 2008. One year and 3 months after the first press release, we got our first Guild Wars 2 FAQ, and the now outdated GW2 logo. My excitement exploded, just due to the fact that we finally got some solid news about the game after waiting so long.
The biggest piece of news that came with the FAQ was that in GW2, we would have the option to play a race other than Human.
By the time this information came out, Eye of the North had been out for almost a year, and each of the races (minus the Sylvari) had been heavily featured in the EotN storyline. Not only did we have a great idea of what each race looked like, but EotN did an amazing job of telling the story of each race's culture.
This is where my real anticipation for GW2 began. From here forward, the majority of my time spent looking up info on the newest games coming out was spent scouring the interwebs for any slice of info on Guild Wars 2.
Next in Make it So, we will fast forward to August 2009, the first time the floodgates opened and we were overwhelmed with sweet, sweet, wonderful, and tasty GW2 news. Our goal with Make it So is to educate those new to Guild Wars 2, with a basic timeline of major news announcements.
