More Guild Wars Heading to Retailers

GuildWarsNightfall.jpgArenaNet and NCsoft announced today that their latest expansion for Guild Wars, Nightfall, has shipped to retailers in both Europe and North America and should be available to purchase as soon as tomorrow.

“Set in the land of Elona, an evil ruler is attempting to summon her outcast god, and the stout of heart are asked to answer the rallying cry to fight back the looming darkness that falls on the land. As you explore opulent cities, brave savage coasts, delve deep into ancient monuments, and find your way across poisonous deserts you will determine the fate of the new realm of Elona.”

New content is rolling out as part of this expansion as well including new missions, items, and skills, two new professions, a new PvP mode, and most interestingly a new concept call “Heroes” which are customizable companions that accompany you into battle, leveling up along with you and using items of your choosing. Of course, like many other expansions, Nightfall will be coming in both a standard and collector’s edition. The collector’s edition will come packaged with…well…everything you see in that picture on the right. Click it to get a better view.

Servers to support the new expansion go live tomorrow morning, so it looks like all of you Guild Wars fans will have something to keep you glued to your PC all weekend.
