Guild Wars 2's launch trailer has, well, launched. A couple of teaser images in mid-August and a series of incredibly portentous quotes beginning late Sunday evening clued fans into the fact that something was afoot, and the video has just gone live.
This trailer is several steps removed from the cinematic- and gameplay-heavy videos that have promoted the game thus far, featuring a significant amount of real-life footage. We're given a tasty bit of in-game footage at the end, though, including a good, long look at Zhaitan himself.
