We've seen the videos of in-game footage, and while they are beautiful, the first live demo is a completely different story for most fans. It's a chance to see Guild Wars 2 in action, and Italian gaming site Multiplayer.it won the race with an uploaded video of the public demo.
The video is of the charr territory, presumably near the Dragonbrand given the corrupted charr below, and we get our first look at map travel as well as a few other things. With no further delay, let's get to the good stuff: follow along after the jump to see the Guild Wars 2 live demo.
[Editor's Note 2: Flipped the video over to the YouTube version, as the prior stream was failing to launch.]
