At a time when everyone is escaping from bugs in & # 39; other game, ArenaNet is trying to get everyone talking about bugs alone Guild Wars 2. F & # 39; in this case, it is for good reason. The bugs in question are to mount beetle roller. Just like back in & # 39; July, and tomorrow Guild Wars 2 launches five tracks as part of a sweepstakes & # 39; month in which the players can overcome those beetles for a bit & # 39; fame, glory and amazing, numerous awards in the real world. If you are lucky especially when events & # 39; "Roller Beetle Racing" jump on the 24 & # 39; December, you can & # 39; even run home with & # 39; 2018 Volkswagen Beetle.
You do not have the race if you want to get on the pleasure, as we joined & # 39; ArenaNet to get two of headsets Nari Ultimate New & # 39; Razer. We really iħobbhom when rrevedewhom f & # 39; in September, and we would like to nġibuhom on your heads.
Leap of faith
As the courses themselves, PCWorld ArenaNet invited to introduce the track "Infernal Leap", sending players to cut spicy volcanic bowels of Mount Maelstrom. The track begins quietly enough, with players racing through & # 39; of & # 39 points; control and enemy NPCs of the past seem to & # 39; make the action as armadillo on streets & # 39; Texas.
But act quickly warm. After a quick tour, players find themselves racing through & # 39; lava tubes and tortużi so narrow that it is impossible to do through them while speeding like a fastball. But excessive caution is discouraged: Not soon after, players need to build up enough speed to jump the pool & # 39; molten lava in the mountain core.
In an email, lead the Joe team Kimmes tell you that they planned the whole track across this gap: "The idea of & # 39; jumped on the central room of the lava felt like a moment & # 39 ; classic stunt enough.
Like the other tracks, ArenaNet has built the course Infernal Leap across preexisting interior area Guild Wars 2, So Kimmes and his team had a breed of their roller beetles around the area several times before not rely on a route that prevents players filled. It surprised me a bit, frankly, since I was nistennejja all kinds & # 39; jumped designed and crazy obstacles when ArenaNet first told me about the track. I am especially surprised that there is at least one strap & # 39; flame. even Fortnite has that.
F & # 39; one point, Kimmes tells, road Infernal Leap was much more dangerous. Mount Maelstrom is usually the settings & # 39; dynamic event for regular players associated with the disease, and the volcano emitted if the players fail.
"The reduced vision and in heat damage to the heart became so great that it was impossible to pass it on beetle", he says. In response, ArenaNet increased gap & # 39; limited immunity for players who participated in the races.
"You will still take damage if normal lava miss the jump," he says, "but it does not have to worry about the eruption taking the beetle by the commission at its center."
Eyes on the prize
It is possible to tone & # 39; & # 39 players can; ending participate, because the big prize is a 2018 Volkswagen Beetle that comes with wrapping Roller Beetle Racing. (This is true in the United States, at least – the car can & # 39; & # 39 different in, other countries.)
Prices & # 39; weekly are almost & # 39; concern. They are so good, in fact, that I'm having trouble deciding which one I want more. There is the "Razer PC Package", for example, which includes a Razer BlackWidow Keyboard Elite, the Tournament Edition headset & # 39; Kraken, a mouse & # 39; Naga Trinity and mouse strip Goliathus Extended Chroma. But there is also a PC Alienware Aurora, which also comes with & # 39; monitor. Beyond that, you & # 39; & # 39 winning system; home entertainment, details are currently scarce – or a vacation to San Diego that includes a lag of sand in & # 39; dune buggy.
To enter, players simply have to sign up through & # 39; this link and introduce at least one race & # 39; beetle between tomorrow and 24 & # 39; December. Each race of & # 39; Weekly earn & # 39; another ticket for both awards & # 39; every week as well as the big prize, and gives four & # 39; .
ArenaNet is making sure that as much as & # 39; is people can & # 39; find yourself on the pleasure, because the event will not require the Path of Fire expansion or even the ability to open a used roller beetle in the wider world & # 39 ;. Simply saunter up to the racing track, and NPCs will lets you rent one without paying the current content to January 7.
You just want to buy the game to play itself, but ArenaNet currently sells both standard editions as well as games & # 39; deluxe Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire 50 percent & # 39; away When you enter the code in the box BlackFriday50 on its site.
Such events are among the reasons I have admired Guild Wars 2. Few other MMOs fit to be so creative in the design of their games, and is heritage that goes all the way back to 2012 when ArenaNet daħalna f & # 39; dynamic works that broke free EverQuest-tixt search style. The beetles of the roller itself alleviate the usual assembly MMRPG f & # 39; something exciting skill: They pass, they get a boost, and sometimes also by furnishing & # 39; barriers. mounts in World of Warcraft, By contrast, feel hardly different from walking.
That skill limit means that you need to stay & # 39; to win alert Leap infernal. Kimmes advises keeping an eye on the point & # 39; next so as not to miss the left dummy seems not long after the central room of lava. It's easy to get distracted by NPCs, says, can & # 39; cause to miss the turn and lose precious time while turning.
"There is power to restore the power just after the change, so the best approach is to go for the diversion turn," he says. "Even if you lose speed, you get the chance to strengthen and recover thereafter."
Sounds tough. But with & # 39; just rewards on the table, there are many reasons to practice.
