ArenaNet's upcoming massively-multiplayer online game Guild Wars 2 has warriors, magic-users, and rogues. What's missing? Elite military commandos. For one day and one day only, that role has been filled.


Imagine playing through a SOCOM mission with your buddies and finding yourself in World of Warcraft. That's the idea behind ArenaNet's Commando class for Guild Wars 2. Heavily armed men with the resources of a large military force at their disposal, frolicking in fantasy land.

A master of the battlefield, this elite soldier is equally at home on the mean streets of Lion's Arch, in the steamy Maguuma Jungle, or on the Orrian front. The multi-role commando is a combat medic, an infiltrator, and a tank. By land, sea, or air, the commando is a technological force to be reckoned with. Come get some.

The fact that this is merely an elaborate April Fools prank makes me a little sad inside.
