'Guild Wars Beyond' Events to Affect Guild Wars 2

The backstory of MMORPG sequel Guild Wars 2 will be affected by the outcome of Guild Wars events including the new 'War in Kryta,' developer ArenaNet has revealed.

'War in Kryta' will decide through quests, battles and the sale of faction costumes whether the misguided White Mantle or rebels the Shining Blade rule the region of Kryta, which ArenaNet says will have "a profound effect on the world of Guild Wars 2."

While Guild Wars 2 is set 250 years after the original games, Guild Wars characters will play important roles in the gorgeous subscription-free sequel's backstory. The 'Guild Wars Beyond' arc will bring further events to prepare for--and reveal more of--Guild Wars 2 "by focusing on key characters and events that are destined to make history."

Financial documents from publisher NCSoft in early 2009 had pegged Guild Wars 2 for release in 2010 or 2011 but ArenaNet will only say that it'll be out "when it's done."
