Guild Wars 2 cinematics detail the races

ArenaNet has released the intro cinematics for three of the races in Guild Wars 2, giving a taste of their lore and history.

Guild Wars 2 lets you choose between five distinct races. Each comes with its own lore, and developer Arenanet is highlighting those stories by releasing the opening cinematics for three of the races--Humans, Norn, and Charr--along with blurbs of their plots. Intros for the other two races will come later.

ArenaNet's blog outlines the races. Humans were once the predominant race, but has fallen into decline now. The Norn are shape-shifters who have been pushed south slowly, out of their snowy home. The Charr are a younger race, and extremely militant. Check out the intro videos below.

      Mr Watts,

      Glad to see that the Guild Wars 2 fan community alerted you to your incorrect report. Maybe next time prior to assuming that the first Google search you perform is the correct information, you will check the official site under Game Info, and do some real reporting on the topic. Shame on you.
