ArenaNet releases Guild Wars 2 Asura intro cinematic [Updated]

Jef Reahard

The Asura are here, and they're not very modest if we're going by Guild Wars 2's latest racial cinematic. "I personify genius," says the narrator before going on to explain how Asurans "exceed expectations in everything we do."

ArenaNet has released a two-minute clip that gives us some background on the diminutive race, and the running time is heavy on the firm's one-of-a-kind concept art. Since this is also an intro cinematic, it lets us in on what awaits players who elect to roll as one of the floppy-eared cutelings in this weekend's beta as well as Guild Wars 2's forthcoming launch.

See the Asura for yourself after the break.

[Thanks to Michael for the tip!]

[Update: Anet has released a new blog post that offers a bit of insight into the creation of the Asura cinematic.]
