Gamescom 2010 Recap

505 exhibitors fought for the attention of over 250,000 visitors at this year's iteration of gamescom, the world's largest game exhibition. NCSOFT and ArenaNet attended in full force and unleashed a schedule packed with cool activities onto the unsuspecting show visitors.

Our cameras ran hot throughout the show, and the NCSOFT West flickr album exists to somewhat prove this theorem. We capture several snapshots from the NCSOFT cosplay contest held on Sunday, where an impressive Guilds Wars 2 Asura walked away as winner. The contributions were awesome though, and we'd like it to be known, simply in order to spice things up with a cliché, that if we could have given everyone a first prize, we would have!

The Path to Balaurea

The path to Balaurea is a long one, but also one paved with adventure. As preparations for a full-scale assault continue, Lord Marchutan of the Asmodians and Lord Kaisinel of the Elyos have begun fighting for control of Balaurea. Reports from the front line indicate that the Elyos have secured a base of operations in Inggison, while the Asmodians continue to defend their region of Gelkmaros. This thrust is merely the first battle in a war that will be fought by all Daevas and consume all of Atreia.

It won't be long until great airships begin to transport Daevonian soldiers readied for battle. The Empyrean Lords from both races have bestowed a special blessing upon all citizens of Atreia that will enable all Daevas to earn twice as much experience from each battle and crafting experiment so they may more swiftly muster the strength necessary to conquer the Balaur and ensure the destruction of the Dragon Lord Tiamat. Act quickly soldiers! The blessing the Lords bestow cannot be sustained forever, and the stronger their warriors become, the less likely the Lords will be able to hold the blessing.

Glory calls; will you answer? Tell your friends, and take advantage of this special blessing before the assault begins. The path to Balaurea is in front of you, and the time to prepare is now!
