NCsoft and ArenaNet have launched Guild Wars: Eye of the North, the first expansion to the Guild Wars franchise of subscription-free, online role-playing games.
Guild Wars players who purchase the expansion can access Eye of the North content through the Guild Wars campaigns -- Guild Wars, Guild Wars: Factions, or Guild Wars: Nightfall.
The expansion also includes a feature that allows players to take achievements they have earned over the years with them into the forthcoming Guild Wars 2.
Guild Wars: Eye of the North is now available at www.GuildWars.ph, as well as from retailers nationwide.
Eye of the North advances the story told in the original Guild Wars campaign, and is set in the unexplored area of the continent of Tyria. One of the highlights of the expansion is the Hall of Monuments, which allows players to preserve armor sets, pets, Heroes, and titles earned while playing Guild Wars, Factions, Nightfall, and Eye of the North, and take those accomplishments with them into Guild Wars 2.
The expansion also contains a host of new features that will appeal directly to veteran Guild Wars players, including 18 multi-level dungeons, 150 new skills across all 10 Guild Wars professions, 10 new Heroes to aid them in their adventures, 40 new armor sets, and more items, weapons, and titles.
The Guild Wars franchise recently surpassed four million units sold and is one of the most popular online role-playing game series of all time. Guild Wars 2 is expected to go into public beta in the second half of 2008.
