Guild Wars Factions is the next campaign in the Guild Wars saga.

Guild Wars Factions is a stand-alone product. Those who own Guild Wars are not required to purchase Guild Wars Factions in order to continue playing on their game account, and those who purchase Guild Wars Factions may play without purchasing Guild Wars. However, there is a strong level of interconnection between the two games that makes having them both an exceptional experience.

Guild Wars is an online roleplaying game where players explore a rich fantasy world, acquire skills, build personalized characters, and compete in head-to-head guild battles with players from around the world. In addition to the compelling game design and innovative technology that make playing Guild Wars a unique experience, Guild Wars success is due in part to a revolutionary business model in which no monthly subscription fee is charged to its users.


New Game types:
  • Challenge Missions
    Challenge Missions are cooperative missions with specific scoring objectives, such as holding out against progressive waves of enemies. Within the game, personal bests and high scores will be displayed.
  • Elite Missions
    Elite Missions are the most powerful means by which alliances access new areas; they are designed to be the ultimate cooperative challenge.
  • Alliance Missions
    In Alliance Missions, multiple teams compete to control resource points and achieve strategic victory. Victors earn faction points for their alliance, and the outcomes will determine control of towns and outposts.
  • Faction Battles
    Factions Battles are large-scale, strategic PvP battles that allow factions to conquer new territory.

By aligning with one of two warring factions, alliances can gain and hold territory by participating in Faction Battles. The outcome of these battles influences the progress of the war between the two factions. The current battle lines and indications of the control of cities and towns are always visible on the world map. Guild membership in Guild Wars Factions is extremely appealing and interesting for both cooperative and PvP players. By joining an alliance and achieving success with Alliance Missions, your guild gains control of high-level towns. With that control, guild members acquire access to elite cooperative content. In Factions, the strongest guilds most likely will not be made up exclusively of PvP or cooperative players. The strongest guilds will be a combination of both types of players, and such a combination will result in benefits for all members.

New Content:

  • A total of 300 new skills, including 90 new elite skills, for the two new Factions professions and the six core professions from Guild Wars
  • More than 50 new locales, including story missions, combat arenas, and explorable areas
  • More than 100 new creatures
  • New guild halls
  • New faces, hair styles, and armor sets for both Factions and the core professions
  • New pets
  • Hundreds of new weapons and items

If you purchase Factions, you will be able to travel to the new land, Cantha, with your Ascended characters from Guild Wars (original Prophecies campaign). Inventory items, skills, and other possessions and attainments from Guild Wars remain yours and remain useable within Guild Wars Factions.
