Guild Wars 2 Gets Jotun Race

The Guild Wars 2 world is getting a little more fleshed out as ArenaNet has just posted a big run-down of information about a race that’ll appear in the game, known as the Jotun. The lengthy blog post over at details their tragic, crappy history (they rose to become powerful and civilized by conquering people, before what was essentially racism, civil war and eugenics collapsed their society and destroyed a great deal of their history and knowledge).

ArenaNet says in the post that while the Jotun have been seen in Guild Wars before, the developer wanted to make the race more than just drooling, club-wielding huge guys. Read the rest of the detailed write-up on the Jotun over at ArenaNet’s website, or just click here.
