Guild Wars: Nightfall Details, PvP Event

This Guild Wars Press Release has details on the next chapter in Guild Wars, which will go by the recently revealed title Nightfall (story). Here's word on the add-on, and plans for a PvP event at the end of this month:
July 18, 2006 (BELLEVUE, WA) — ArenaNet®, developer of the world's leading subscription-free online roleplaying games Guild Wars® and Guild Wars FactionsTM, and NCsoft® Corporation, the world's leading developer and publisher of online computer games, announce today the title of the next game in the award-winning franchise, Guild Wars NightfallTM. Further, Guild Wars Nightfall has entered the beta testing stage and Guild Wars players worldwide are invited to participate in an exclusive, first-look player-versus-player (PVP) event, July 28 — 30, 2006.

During the PVP Preview Event, both Guild Wars and Guild Wars Factions® players will get a first look at Guild Wars Nightfall, and will be able to try out the two new professions being introduced in the game; the Dervish, a scythe-wielding holy warrior, and the Paragon, guardian angel of the Elonian people. In addition to testing out the new professions and arenas, players will also be able to compete for items that will be exchangeable for a variety of rewards throughout the weekend event.

The Guild Wars Nightfall PVP Preview event will kick off on Friday, July 28 at 12:01am PDT and will continue through Sunday, July 30 at 11:59pm PST.

Lvl20 again? Please, no. Speak with Mensa, have a 'brain dump' but please please please work out some way so that we can take our lvl20 characters up to lvl40.

And once again someone entirely misses the point of the level 20 cap. Guild Wars was not supposed to be a level grind game, it was supposed to be all about PvP. Having the cap at a low level like 20 allows more people to play PvP who would otherwise have not bothered to reach the maximum level.

Of course, whether GW really *is* all about PvP depends on who you ask. Personally I think it did neither PvP nor PvE well, but I quit before Factions even came out so I have no idea how that went over.
