I must admit, this doesnt seem like my type of game, being an rpg and all, but after looking at some features, the no monthly fee, and the new gameplay movie, I think I may go preorder this

anyone else looking at it or already preordered it?... next beta weekend is this weekend and Im thinking I just may try it out

Just had a look at the main website and it looks pretty impresive... Amazing they are not putting a monthly price onit.

I may have to get a hold of a beta key and give it a try... Thx for the heads up on this game
. RPG not my main game but I did like Neverwinter Nights and Morrowind.

Did you get a friends single weekend beta pass aswell... I read on the site when you pre order you get one that is for every weekend but you also get a single weekend pass for a friend

I just pre-ordered the game as well, much to my wife's dismay...lol

I need to look into the beta pass thingie.

My wife sent me out for headphones for her mp3 player, and I came home with HL2, Painkiller expansion, Sims2 (for her), and Pre-ordered Guild Wars...she wasn't very happy.

Its when it comes to paying the rest... Although that wont be for a while yet so I suppose I could pre-order it.

yeah its not out until april 28th... also, if you preorder and play on the beta weekends and realize you just dont like it, you can always not pay the rest... its almost like renting it

Well just had a look around and the only place to pre-order on the net in UK is Game and they want full cash price plus P+P upfront.
Another one is import it from USA for a little bit more in price but only pay small preorder price.

Think I may have to go into town and speak to someone in EB of Game.

Just watched some of the videos and I think it has better visuals then WoW and Guild is free once you bought it... How do they do it.

Ill grab a copy and ship it to you if youd like... shipping shouldnt be that much

theres some sort of proprietary streaming technology that allows even 56kers to play and actually enjoy it... must be one reason theres no monthly fee

I also saw some people from the uk and netherlands that http://www.importmadness.com works

Gonna have to wait until I got the money I think... I looked at Import madness and thats upfront payment ans it comes to 36pound in total.

Well I better fix some peoples PCs and get some cash to spend.
