So far the story of GW2 was about straight-forward way of narrative, not really about uncovering dark, weird, almost horror-like secrets, but with the Icebrood Saga the Anet teams will try to take a different approach.
How will it look like? I guess there will be even bigger focus on the characters, and more weird stuff will be happening in the story.
But is GW2 suitable for that kind of storytelling, after 7 years of established narrative design?
I luv deep, creepy, dark and weird stories, full of mysteries, but is GW2 ready to touch on such after such colorful happy ending of Season 4 with Aurene and stuff?
Will this all be compelling and genuine?
But I am kind of hopeful that Arenanet Narrative Team may do something original with the lovecraftian vibe and unite it all with this religious kind of storytelling we have seen so far.
Well, the Icebrood Saga will be interesting.
And Whisper in the Dark? Reminds me of The Whisperer in Darkness
The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.
H. P. Lovecraft
