We all know how much excitement we get from underwater combat in most MMOs: zero. However, many players extol the underwater combat of Guild Wars 2. I have not tried it myself, but multiple people I know have be more than impressed with the fluidity (no pun intended) and dexterity of the characters while underwater. During the interview with Gary Gannon earlier this evening, Systems Designer Jonathan Sharp was elated over how well the combat system performed during testing so far.
Being the griefer that he is, Gary pressed the question, “Does that mean we will see underwater PvP?” Sharp responded quickly “Yes,” confirming that there will definitely be underwater player versus player combat. However, with Community Manager Martin Kerstein looming over his shoulder, Sharp couldn’t elaborate further. Guild Wars 2 stretches the mold of the MMO enough as it is, and now it has stretch it even more.
