Prepare For Guild Wars With Chapter II Announced, The Adventures Will Continue In Ascalon
Most Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games (MMOPRG) are alike in many ways. You build a character, kill some monsters, embark on some quests, gain experience points, and level up to godlike status.
Guild Wars changed these conventions in a big way!
Since its release early in 2005, Guild Wars revolutionized the MMORPG scene, as well as gaming technology in general. The game boasted of so many features, most of which are way advanced for our times. The result: a unique gaming experience that has hooked millions upon millions of people around the world.
Guild Wars: The Most Played MMORPG Everywhere
Guild Wars is known for many innovative aspects, but the most prominent is perhaps the non-existence of a subscription fee. Yes! Unlike most MMORPG programs, playing Guild Wars does not require monthly subscription. All you have to do is to buy the game, or purchase an account key online, and you?re set for life. The game itself would allow you to connect to a number of dedicated servers which would bridge you to fellow players for hours upon hours of adventuring goodness in the fantastically mythical world of Ascalon.
This has led to a lot of players preferring Guild Wars over a slew of other MMORPG programs. The onetime fee is indeed the clincher. This, however, is not the only wonderful component of Guild Wars as a truly satisfying game.
Guild Wars Employs An Innovative Live Streaming System
Tired of downloading patches for your favorite MMORPG programs? Don?t have the patience to wait for the download to finish before you could play? Then Guild Wars is truly the MMORPG for you! With a first-of-its-kind live streaming system, you could download the game yes, the entire game! while playing. This means that once you register your account, you could start playing Guild Wars immediately. The other files will then be downloaded in real time, in the background, during your play.
This is true for necessary patches as well. Guild Wars does away with the usually irritating wait for patches by automatically downloading them for you while you?re playing. The result is a seamless experience, a true open-and-play enjoyment of a wonderful, wonderful MMORPG.
Guild Wars Offer An Amazing Game Play Experience
The revolutionary features are complemented by an amazing and addictive game play that is unlike any MMORPG you have tried before. The first thing that you will notice is the lush graphics that makes your screen come alive. After a few hours of play, you?d start to believe that the world of Ascalon is just as real as ours, thanks to the rich texture and fabulous designs of the images and an ultra powerful graphic engine that is surprisingly friendly to a wide variety of processing systems.
The magnificent ambient sound also offers a different level of immersion for the gamer. This may not be apparent with generic speaker, but plug in some amps to complement a modern sound card and boom! you?ll never get to hear more realistic audio from another game, much more another MMORPG.
Though Guild Wars uses the same play mechanics as most MMORPG that is, the Diablo point-and-click, hack-and-slash system, game play takes a decidedly different turn when it comes to execution. Rather than competing for re-spawning monsters with other players, Guild Wars will transport you, and your party if you choose to join one, to a pocket area where you have exclusive dig at all the monsters. Towns and meeting points are the only communal levels of this MMORPG, and you could conduct necessary interaction in these places.
Veteran MMORPG campaigners may find this rather confusing, but give it time and you?re going to love the intimate aspect that Guild Wars has to offer.
Future Looks Bright With The Coming Of Guild Wars: Factions

Entitled Guild Wars: Factions, the expansion promises to offer more areas to explore, more professions to master, more skills to learn, more missions to undertake, more Player Vs.

The release of the MMORPG?s second chapter is proof enough of the developers? commitment to make Guild Wars a staple in the MMORPG scene.

With the release of Guild Wars: Factions, the franchise is set to solidify its claim to fame, and set the MMORPG scene ablaze, anew.
