Description

Set in the fantasy world Tyria, Guild Wars offers a mixture of massive multiplayer gaming and the online cooperative play in games like Diablo. While the city zones of Tyria are shared with all players for trading and finding party-members. as soon as a player or group leaves the city a copy of the outer zone is created for every group. Due to the lower server server usage and traffic, Guild Wars manages to remain free of monthly fees.

Although the game contains an epic story which is revealed during questing and fighting monsters and other villains, a great part of Guild Wars concentrates on player vs. player fights (between small teams and whole guilds). The gameplay itself majorly focuses on cleverly chosen sets of skills rather than equipment and character levels. So obtaining a good collection of skills (by fulfilling quests or buying them) is one of the permanent goals of the game.

The Collector's Edition includes:
  • In-game aura for all of the player's characters.
  • A headset for voice-chat.
  • Teamspeak, a voice-chat software.
  • 3 months of free subscription for a Teamspeak server.
  • Printed Guild Wars art book.
  • Official game soundtrack.
