  • Let the previewing begin! IGN previews this newly announced expansion pack for Guild Wars.

    Guild Wars was a great success. And with great success comes great expansions and eventually sequels. ArenaNet, developer of Guild Wars, has done things a bit different from the very beginning and are continuing the trend. Instead of offering the basic expansion pack that most were expecting, they're offering up Guild Wars: Factions, a stand-along (yes along) that allows players to purchase and play the title without needing the original Guild Wars. Those that have the original Guild Wars that purchase Factions can adventure on the new continent. Those that buy Factions first can then go back and experience the original content at a later time. Interesting? We think so.

  • It looks like the new MMO concept of paying for the game and not the subscription is really paying off for NCSoft. Today they announced the first expansion for Guild Wars - Factions

    Bellevue, Wash., Jan. 10, 2006 — NCsoft®, the world's leading developer and publisher of online computer games, announces Guild Wars®: Factions™, the next chapter in the critically acclaimed Guild Wars franchise from ArenaNet® studios. The Factions campaign will release in the second quarter of 2006. It offers players an incredible gameplay experience with many new choices, including new regions, professions, skills, missions, and monsters, along with expanded options for both Cooperative and Player-versus-Player (PvP) play, and enhanced features for guilds.

    Players will get their first chance to experience the new campaign when ArenaNet opens its servers to everyone for the Guild Wars: Factions Global Free-for-All PvP Weekend. This worldwide event—scheduled for January 20 through 22—is open to both existing Guild Wars players and to those who do not have a Guild Wars account. ArenaNet is distributing free access keys to the event at

    The event will enable players to experience two new professions being introduced in the campaign, the Assassin and the Ritualist. Participants will also be able to try out a number of the skills added to Guild Wars: Factions, including some of the deadly skills of the Assassin and the arcane spells of the spiritual Ritualist. They will also be able to get familiar with the new PvP continent, Battle Isles. Battle Isles will introduce players to new PvP experiences, new and expanded arenas, new quests, and a new explorable area as well.

    Another feature available during the Guild Wars: Factions Global Free-for-All PvP Weekend is Observer Mode, where players who aren't participating in a battle can view the proceedings and check out the strategies and tactics used by top-ranked guilds as they fight for supremacy.

    "We're excited to be offering this free preview of Guild Wars: Factions to players throughout the world," said Patrick Wyatt, co-founder of ArenaNet. "Factions is a huge step in the continued evolution of the game, and I think gamers are really going to be excited about the new features they're going to see!"

  • GameSpy's 2006 PC Winners!
    Get this... it isn't World of Warcraft! It's Guild
    ! Shocked? Me too. They explain their decision:

    When a mammoth game like World of Warcraft is unleashed upon the world, it's
    hard to take in the long view of the MMO market. But its four-million-odd
    subscriber base be damned, there is a game out there that's pushing the boundaries
    in more meaningful -- and, very likely, more far-reaching -- ways. That's
    Guild Wars, which gets the nod here for a multitude of reasons. Primarily,
    it provides a gameplay experience that's packed with topnotch content, well-designed
    underlying systems, and amazing visuals. And it provides all this without
    a monthly subscription. It's a bold move for an MMO, and when you consider
    that the quality of Guild Wars' experience is on par with the best pay-for-play
    MMOs out there, well, it's bound to make splashes. And we'll be feeling their
    effects soon.

    Best part- WoW was merely an "Honorable Mention." Bet thats gonna
    stir up a lot of trouble!

  • If she really were an assassin, she'd be gone by the time we link to the forum thread.
    Guild Wars Guru's community and (interestingly) Guild Wars Slovenia are reporting that assassins are going to be the new class for the game's chapter 2 installment next year. What began as a rumor has since been confirmed by ArenaNet officials, like Alex Weekes of the Community Relations team:

    Actually, it's from a well-respected source (Play Magazine) and has already been confirmed as legitimate by Gaile (and now by me). The source is not an adult publication, it's a gaming publication ... and as Gaile has already noted, Play Magazine have previously provided some excellent Guild Wars features.

    Nothing dubious about it at all, the Assassin will be available to players when the game releases in the First Half 2006.

    There ya have it. Check out the newest Guild Wars class at the official site.
