HD version of GW1

Are there any thoughts on redoing GW1 with better graphics and maybe new content? There is 100? years to play with for added story. Seeing how "reboots" are a thing these days.

See ELE forms and you will get my views.

    for the graphics part of your question:
    there was a recent update to the engine
    so it now looks better if you turn advanced on in graphics settings

    I would buy it in a heartbeat but unfortunatly I don't think it will be a thing.

    Did they not cover this before stating they wouldn't be releasing an HD version of the game, it would probably require a ton of effort to do that anyway.

  • It would be a lot of work in non-obvious ways. The current game download is almost 4 gigabytes, which is the largest file the old engine can process. So if we figured out a way to up-rez the textures, for instance, we couldn't download them without rewriting the .dat file manager.
