Guild Wars 2 is well received all across the board, acquiring top-notch review scores from IGN, GameSpy etc. The game is unique with its responsive storyline based on the player’s actions, something more common in single player than in an MMO. Not to mention dynamic events that happen throughout the game to replace quests. Guild Wars 2 released their based game in August 2012, with its first expansion being announced at PAX South in January 2015. Heart of Thorns expansion is released later that year, on October 2015. That expansion introduced new challenges, a new profession and new specializations for the older ones. Overall, the Heart of Thorns expansion was also very well received. With over 5 million copies sold by August 2015, Guild Wars 2’s base game turned free to play. If you haven’t checked out Guild Wars 2 yet, you definitely should.
