What is the Guild Wars Factions Preview Event?
The FPE is a weekend event that gives gamers a sneak peek at the wonders of Cantha, the featured land of Guild Wars Factions, and invites them experience some of the new gameplay options. Players will have the opportunity to explore part of this large new game world, to try out new gameplay mechanics, to learn a bit about the story of Factions, to see some of the diverse new creatures and monsters, to play the two new professions—The Assassin and the Ritualist—and to experience some of the immersive new missions and quests.
What is the date of the event?
The FPE will begin at 12:01 a.m. PST on Friday morning, March 24, and will end at 11:59 p.m. PST on Sunday night, March 26.
What new content will be available during the Factions Preview Event (FPE)?
Players will be able to create new characters, including Assassins and Ritualists, on the new continent of Cantha. For beta testing purposes these new characters will start at a high level, with high-level weapons and armor, and will jump right into the middle of the Factions Campaign, where they will be able to play through four of the missions.
Players will also be able to create Assassin and Ritualist PvP characters, and unlock Assassin and Ritualist skills onto their accounts.
