Competition for World of Warcraft?
For years it has been the king of MMORPGs but is it is danger of losing its throne?
Although WoW is an MMO giant, since it’s release in 2004 it is slowly aging , loosing its interest and loosing hundreds of thousands of players per month.
In 2012 will WoW remain the king of the online gaming world with its new “Mist of Pandaria” expansion or will Guild Wars 2 take the crown?
Guild Wars 2 is one of the most highly anticipated games of all time
and is said to be released this year.
Guild Wars 2 has one major factor that makes it different from Warcraft: it’s free, almost. You’ll have to pal the usual $60 or so to buy the game, but once that’s done there are no ongoing subscription fees to pay!
With beautiful graphics and the addition of underwater combat Guild Wars 2 will diffidently be WoW’s biggest competitor.
Also will EA and Bioware’s new “StarWars: The Old Republic” (SWTOR) rise above as the next-gen MMO?
It will be interesting to see how the race unfolds throughout the year, til’ then
only time will tell…
