Guild Wars 2 media gets a bit hairy


It's shaping up to be a fine day for Norse-loving RPG fans. Hot on the heels of the first in-game Skyrim trailer come new screenshots and a trailer showing off Guild Wars 2's Nordic race, the Norn.

The eye candy comes as part of ArenaNet's 'Norn Week,' during which the developer has revealed a great many details on the shape-shifting barbarians. Lore fans will want to dive in for their fill of information on everything from Norn society to the theory that they might be a de-evolving branch of a anthropomorphic polar bear race who live in iceberg fortresses.

The subscription-free MMORPG is due to launch on PC "when it's done," published by NCSoft.
