Though ArenaNet's Guild Wars 2 is now lined up to launch on PC this year, it's still early days for the console edition. "Console edition?" you may ask. It's been quietly mentioned a few times before with no concrete details, and that's apparently still the case, but work is continuing.

Though word leaked earlier this week that the final Guild Wars 2 profession revealed would be Mesmer, all we had was a video without any explanation. Today, developer ArenaNet officially unveiled GW2's take on the returning class, with heaps of details and a few screenshots.

Due to the fact that "someone jumped the gun" on embargoed information, ArenaNet has confirmed that the eighth and final profession for Guild Wars 2 will be the Mesmer.

Guild Wars 2 Sylvari race shown off

Guild Wars 2 Sylvari race shown off

Guild Wars 2 developer ArenaNet is shining the spotlight on its playable plant people in a week of videos and articles. The Sylvari race might have similarities with the elves seen in every fantasy game under the sun but, thankfully, they seem far a more interesting take on the idea of wise and noble forest-dwellers, and not nearly as tiresome.
