The official Vanguard FAQ hasn't been updated in a while, so you can check out an updated FAQ at Silky Venom, a VG fansite, here -- http://www.silkyvenom.com/pages/faq.php

There's also been a load more exclusive screenshots, interviews and in some cases early in game video's that you won't see on the official site distributed to the Affiliated Sites (fansites that get the Sigil mark of approval -- this means they must be quite active, updated regularly, have lots of features, and not have connections to organisations that profit from the sale of currency, items or characters). You can check out a list of the Affiliates here -- http://www.vanguardsoh.com/fansite.php

I've been following this game closely for nearly two years, and I have high hopes for it. It better be good

EDIT
Here's a few video links. Some of these are a bit old but hopefully will give you an insight on how the game is shaping up. Recently they've been adding or improving on the lighting, animation, motion capture etc etc.

We got a few people in our guild in Beta. However we are really strict when it comes to NDA as well. I don't have the beta, and my guild members wont even tell ME anything. They wont even answer simple questions like "is it good?" All i get is "under NDA, sorry can't tell you".

Just surfed over the site a bit and it seems like it is very EQ2'ish as far as game mechanics and stuff?

Looks good though.

it SHOULD have an eq look to it considering its the original eq 1 guys doing this thing.

i hope its good. i just see no reason why microsoft wont pull the plug on it at the zero hour like they have the last 3 mmo's they funded. last one was 3 months from launch i believe, damned if i can remember the name of it though.

It looks EQ1 like but gameplay wise its so different. It's not as simplistic and easy as most current MMOs.

I HATE Vanguard, but it has nothing to do with the game itself. The game looks fine.

I hate it because MS decided they didn't need 2 MMORPGs in development, so they dropped Mythica, an absolutely beautiful and unique game.

So I guess I don't really hate Vanguard, I hate MS for picking it

Vanguard isn't developed by MS though, MS is only publishing it. MS probably canceled the development of Mythica because they saw how it wouldn't be able to compete in a saturated market.

Saturated market? I haven't seen anything comparable to WoW in terms of graphics and gameplay ever since I stopped playing the damn MMORPG. Seriously, tell me which MMO should I pick up after I've had it with WoW due to the insane time-sink required to be able to progress beyond lvl 60?

I think WOW had excellent graphics. I don't need the lastest bleeding edge stuff to keep me happy the art work was simply amazing. Also I quit playing MMORPGs simply because all they are IS a timesink. Yes I played WOW all the way to 60 and did numerous Molten Core raids. It was CRAP. It takes 40 guys 5 hours to get MAYBE 3 pieces of gear. Screw that. All MMORPGs are is simply a giant game of "who has the most free time" That simply doesn't do it for me. I hate getting beaten because some guy is happy to live on welfare and play 14 hours a day. Thats just not fun at all. Also there was the issue of HUGE class imbalances.
