ArenaNet and NCsoft’s long-awaited follow-up to the award-winning original has been in the works for five years, but Guild Wars 2 is finally upon us! Just as we did with Tera, GamesBeat is celebrating the MMO’s release with an exhaustive image exhibit featuring all of the races, professions, and character-creation options available to players in the game. Enjoy!
