So, this weekend, you have the chance to play Guild Wars Nightfall for free as part of our World Preview Event. You don't even need an account. All you do is download the client, launch it, and create a new account using the numbers here.
What happens next is the game I have been working on for the past few months. This is a preview, so it is only the opening section, but it has a lot of fun quests, beautiful graphics, and some really nice cinematics (if I do say so myself). It is worth checking out, and doesn't cost anything on your side.
The past few weeks we've been polishing this up for presentation, as well as wiring, rewiring, programming, reprogramming, testing, retesting, and doing wonderful things to pull this all together. This is the computer game equivalent of the movie advance preview, or catching a Broadway show before it hits the Great White Way.
If you're a gamer, or even if you're not, its worth checking out.
Update on Friday Morning: We are currently pounding some bugs out. If you have been trying to get online without success, or experiencing technical difficulties, it's not you. We should have it up and operating later today. (Ah, modern technology)
Further Friday Update: Looks like we're good to go. Go have fun!
