ArenaNet have announced they will be ending support for DirectX 9 to allow them to use more modern rendering features. This will give Guild Wars 2 better graphics and smoother performance, all while negatively affecting as few players as possible.

Therefore the Minimum System Requirements for the game are updating as you will require a DirectX11-compatible GPU, which shouldnt be too much of an issue seem as though it launched in 2009.
If players are unsure if their GPUs are able to run DirectX 11, players can easily check the compatibility of their hardware by following these very simple steps:

  • Enter “dxdiag” into the taskbar search box.
  • Select dxdiag from the results.
  • Click on the “Display 1” tab in the diagnostic tool when it pops up.
  • Under the “Drivers” section on the right, read the numbers in the “Feature Levels.”
  • If this list contains the number “11_0” or higher, the computer’s GPU is DirectX 11-compatible.
