Not concept art, but I stole this from B3ta and didn't think it needed a new thread:

That's very nice. More realistic than the siege turtles we have now ingame... Even though it looks like their shells were carved/created specially to hold the cannons. Wonder if Lamarkism applies to the gw universe?

i think i've watched these about 10 times each.
i just love these videos. too bad the 2nd one doesnt have the enviroment sounds.
i really like the lions arch artwork. the whole pirate feel is awesome.
been trying to find some high quality versions of these pics but so far i havent had any luck. gw2 wiki has the shots, but they are too small.
http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Category:2010_GDC_slideshow

these videos make me get totally excited about the game again, after the horrible races of tyria trailer. maybe im being too harsh. i just hope they can make a good transfer from artwork to the game itself.

Erendis discovered some phrases in the source-code of those propaganda pages.

"Mantle has discovered plans. Writing is on wall."

"Go, Discover Contentment. Truth is obedience."

The images also have a QRC code, but that only leads to the pages themselves.

"The writing is on the wall" refers to facebook - both the White Mantle and the Shining Blade have fanpages there now.

Ery has already tried to recruit me into the White Mantle. On the one hand they're rubbish, on the other hand they have nice hammers.

Both posters have mobile barcodes on them, anyone have any idea what they say?

I think those are the QRC codes Anya mentioned, that lead only to the pages where you find the posters - useful for people who picked up the flyers at the GDC.

Personally I've joined the Shining Blade fan page. DISMANTLE!!

Personally I think neithe rfaction is good... But I joined the Shining Blade, on account that I've kicked the Mantle's god's asses a few times. :D

Also, religious zealots suck.

Double post, sorry.

The Shining Blade poster was updated again, and the qr code changed as well. This time it doens't lead to any site, it just gives the cryptic message:

Midnight clouds will part. The second symbol will reveal its Face like a hidden moon. /stnarytothtaed

Which isn't so creepy since we know they have a facebook page...

the white mantle clearly have the upper hand in this.
surprised that eri tried recruiting you for the white mantle side. i thought she was with the shining blade.

for me, its been clear since the beggining. even though the shining blade have 2 great assets (livia and hayda) my allegiance belongs with the mantle.

It's worth having a quick look at Arenanets flickr, the latest pic shows "An Elementalist casts the Static Field spell"

If that's an actual warrior model from GW2 then they have CONSIDERABLY improved since GW1 :o

I like all of the faces/hair on the women as well. Promising stuff.

really mori? i think the hair is pretty bad compared to the rest. they all have this plastic feel to them. and aparently they still cant make fur properly.

the frog mob textures look as awesome as they did in gw1.
hopefully that rat one wont get into the game. that thing looks creepy :(

Pfft, the rat looks awesome. Looking forward to encountering those.

Maybe I'm biased by years of staring at Xara's horribly-textured hair, but I do think they've done better with the hairstyles shown here, within the limitations of the engine. Modelling hair and fur more realistically than this would take more of an engine overhaul than they're apparently prepared to do, and would presumably result in a performance hit. (At least, that's what I'm assuming, because it's better than making random accusations of laziness/incompetence like most forum posters..)

We'll just have to make do with their shiny shiny particle effects system :)
