Guild Wars Demo Plans

Public Guild Wars demo for E3 on GameSpot has news that ArenaNet and NCsoft will announce on Monday that they will be releasing a demo version of Guild Wars that will allow a public sample of the upcoming MMORPG during the three days of E3, May 12-14. Word is: "The Guild Wars demo was designed for easy online distribution, and the small 100K client will only need to download around 30MB of art assets from the ArenaNet servers before demo participants can set up an account and log into the game. The developer says it's ready for a massive influx of participants."

What's great about this game is that it makes EA's Ultima X MMORPG game seem like a total rip off of your hard earned cash. Both games seem to have identical approaches to gameplay..... you find people to play with in a bigger area, but once you get on the adventure, you're switched over to a place just for your party. But EA is gonna charge $15 for this!! Not to mention the graphics don't look that great.

I also love the idea that player skill will be the focus of the game, through strategy/tactics/etc, and just levelling up with massive hitpoints is not the focus. They even state that a complete newbie does have a chance of taking on a maximum level character. :-O Leveling up is about opening up new strategies to you, through new abilities, so your player becomes more versatile, and not some demi-god with a bajillion hitpoints
