You won't need the original Guild Wars to play Guild Wars: Factions, though if you do own both games, you'll be able to transfer your characters between both continents by boat. Guild Wars: Factions is due to launch this spring. You can get your first glimpse of Cantha here.

That looks awesome...very Japanese-ish, too. I can't wait! I hope they have a single-player beta event at some point, because I'd very much enjoy that.

Maybe its just me but I dont see any huge difference in graphics.Artwork?yes but graphics?not that much visible to me.I'll probably wont buy Factions upon release and retire myself from GW for a while.If I ever feel like getting back to GW I'll buy Factions then.

Got my Factions pre-order disk the other day, nothing you can't mostly find on the web site (excluding bonus unique items for your characters for pre-ordering) but I have to say I am excited for this.

The original game looks great and runs buttery smooth at 1920x1200 4xaa/16xaf all settings max, and with new shaders and new art for Factions it should look even better.

The idea that mulitplayer arena combat now impact multiple parts of the game is even cooler, with the faction that controls a specific city or region having access to additional quest/content. I am beyond looking forward to this.

Are the bonus items useable by your current characters, or only for Factions characters? And that preview event is this weekend! Score!

I believe they are specific to Factions characters only, but not 100% sure, at work so I can't look.

Preordered (and paid in full) for the Limited/Collectors Edition Monday... got my little dvd and stuff... the preorder items are usable by current classes... I have been running a Mesmer/Warrior with Illusionary Weapon and Flurry for the past few days and using the daggers... pretty overpowered... go try it yourself .

Do I need the Factions preview to get the Dx9 graphics or is Dx9 gfx applied to the main Guild Wars levels right now? I have a Dx9 card and the graphics improved to me and some others online about 2 weeks ago but I'm not sure that update was related to Dx9 or Factions. Now with Factions preview out for about 4 or 5 days it seems like there's more contrast and better textures than a couple week ago but not quite sure. Just wondered if I have to wait to buy Factions in April to get the graphics enhancements of Dx9.

Aaah nevermind, pffft, EDIT - I see now it says Dx9 in my Advanced Graphics section
