Publisher NCSoft has released a set of new screenshots for the upcoming sequel to 2005’s fee-less MMORPG Guild Wars. The screenshots feature the Ranger class and some of the pets that will be available to this class. In addition, some screenshots also show the healing and death effects as they will be present in Guild Wars 2. These images can be found after the jump.

Though the game has been in development since 2007, a solid release date for Guild Wars 2 has not yet been announced. Late last year, developer ArenaNet indicated that a beta will be launched in late 2010 and that the game will be released at some point in 2011. ArenaNet has also stated that the first actual gameplay footage from the game will be shown at GamesCom in August.
