4/1: Guild Wars 2 is NOT crossing over with Minecraft

Guild Wars 2‘s “Super Adventure Box” update isn’t real, but the Minecraft-like graphical overhaul does make good on its promise to bring back the 80s with the awesome trailer/commercial above.

Here’s what else you’ll be able to find inside the “Super Adventure Box“:

  • Super-Hot Graphics: Featuring ‘cutting-edge’ graphics with more than 256 colours, the Super Adventure Box is a visual feast for the gaming connoisseur. Your character has never explored a world like this.
  • Awesome New Levels: Three levels full of pogo mushrooms, platform puzzles, bunny tornadoes, and more. Don’t worry about taking a tumble – we’ve turned off the falling damage and turned up the fun!
  • Big Fun, Big Rewards: You’ll earn “baubles” by slaying varmints and exploring the virtual world of the Super Adventure Box. Exchange baubles for weapons and skills by talking to the shopkeepers inside the Box, or redeem your baubles for special Super Adventure Box weapon skins from asuran inventor, Moto.

Gag Reflex: I think I’d play a lot more MMORPGs if they looked like this. And like Deus Ex: Human Defiance, I have to give points for the expertly-crafted website/trailer combination.
