If that all turns out to be true, that's me sold on it right away already. 'Original' GW (i.e. chapter 1) never got a proper, proper ending, and a lot of stuff was glossed over, and neither Factions nor Nightfall made even the slightest attempt to fix this, which has been a shame since chapter 1 is still, in my view, by far the superior of the three chapters in terms of general plot and design; I've been wanting a proper ending to it since pretty much two weeks after it was first launched, but as time has gone by and the prospect of such a thing has looked bleak, I'd given up on the idea. This gives me new hope though.Eye of the North brings a conclusion what happened in Tyria after Guild Wars: Prophecies ended, and as such - is 100% oriented towards games with characters of maximum level. We know GW gamers want the numbers, so here they are: 18 new multi-level dungeons, 40 new armour sets, 10 new Heroes and massive 150 new skills, out of which 50 belong only to PvE (Player versus Enviroment).
And 40 new armour sets, exclusive PvE-only skills (i.e. no more god-forsaken PvP-biased balancing, at least for a third of skills)? I'm sold.
Anet; even if this report isn't true and your current plans for Ch4 are entirely different; scrap whatever you're working on now, and make this.
Again, I'm sold already. If it isn't actually true, ANet, make it so.This game will be set several hundred years after GW: Prophecies and Eye of the North, but the main drool factor will be zone-wide events (read, open war in DaoC and Alterac Valley style), combined with refined control system, oriented for action and ease of use. Playable races include Humans, Charr, Norns, Asurians and Sylvarians. Level cap is set, but it is not known at the time, while characters will now progress through the game in a more sensitive way.

I am kinda hoping against playable races in GW2 just so we are spared any chance of Furry art showing up everywhere I search "Guild Wars"
also as someone on guru said, maybe Utopia is the name of GW2 instead of the next chapter/expansion?!

Yes, apparently my whois site is wrong. Which worries me because it's the same one my company uses. If they are that out of date, I think we need to switch
I still think it's one of two things. Complete BS built on hearsay and rumors, or a complete violation of an NDC somewhere and somebody is going to get the axe.
My vote is still on complete BS

I don't trust this, i won't believe any of this until it has been officially stated by NCSoft and ANET.

Registry of eyeofthenorth.org? I don't even know if they could even do that, as they are not a non-profit business.
Anyway, if you check out the DNS WHOIS entries for their actual games...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crysis, when the island freezes over, it has nothing to do with Guild Wars.
The guys over at WorthPlaying have managed to get their hands on a bunch of new Crysis screens. Their is still no word on the official release date and the fact if this awsome game is going to be available for the XboX 360. Meanwhile we have to settle with these stunning screens.

Here's a bit of info for you
Just a quick word to let you know that we haven't made any official announcements about Guild Wars in, oh, a couple of months. Sure, there's a little *ahem* info circulating this week. But you guys know the drill: Until we say it, it's not official. I can tell you that some of what you've read is right, some of it is wrong, and quite a bit of it is misleading. Unfortunately, we can't offer a fact check quite yet.
The good news is that the top game publications in Europe and the U.S. are preparing feature articles with major Guild Wars news -- I wasn't joking when I said a few days ago that I think it'll knock your socks off. In the U.S., PC Gamer will begin delivery of the May issue to subscribers on March 15, and it will be on newsstands on April 3. European magazines, including Joystick in France, PC Zone in the U.K., PC GamePlay in Benelux, Games Machine in Italy, and PC Gamer in Germany, will reach subscribers and newsstands before the end of March.
Knowing you guys, no matter where you're located, you'll be sharing the info from your regional magazines, and that's great. I want to make sure that I let you know, this isn't some small feature -- I would boldly say that any Guild Wars player would want to buy one of these magazines, subscriber or not! In part this is because they'll offer great articles with a lot of cool info. In part it's because the magazines will give you the chance to adopt your very own exclusive new miniature. Check our website for more info tomorrow!

it's weird how people see so many negatives. I guess I'm the weird one out in liking changes, and most people are the conservative type.
races in GW2 - I see many people complaining and I don't get it. it certainly won't change much, maybe offer some more diversity and a world that makes more sense (i.e. monsters have a society they don't raise an army out of thin air). as for that being WoW-like, WoW didn't invent anything in fantasy so don't even say it.
an after story for GW1 - this is a good idea, it's end game content people have been asking for. new heroes, and armors, a mysteriously large amount of PVE skills... this sounds like the fun BANG to let GW1 go out on.
losing your character too soon - I hate to tell you this but your character was already maxed after any chapter. there was never going to be a house, and a family, and a palace, and a city named after him or her. the baubles you collected as elite treasure were there for fun, but GW has never really supported the growth of your PC.
