They do not have the monetary income of P2P titles, so the answer to your thread's title is no. I believe it'll probably be based on GW1's update schedule as that worked well for them for years.

GB: Subscription MMOs like World of Warcraft and Star Wars: The Old Republic offer free content updates besides paid-for expansion packs. What are your plans for expanding and improving Guild Wars 2 long-term? Can customers expect any content additions for free, or will they only come in the form of expansion packs?

O’Brien: We’ll have both. Players can expect the same level of ongoing support from Guild Wars 2 as they would expect from any top-tier MMO.

That is great. Thanks ;)

 I wouldn't be so sure...

Remember that making revenue does not necessarily mean that it is channeled back into the game.  I'm sure a lot of that sub revenue is taken as profit.

Also, it really is in ANet's interest to put out more content.  More content means people will keep playing, and the more people playing, the more people buying stuff from the CS.

Are you team Azeroth, team Tyria, or team Jacob?

Hey I am going to post something completely pulled out of my ass!!  And in fancy colors!

 

We don't know what kind of monetary income they have.  If enough people buy bag slots and dyes and such off the shop they could very well have the monetary income of other titles.  Sure, they wont get the $13 per person of a p2p, but if they get $5 per person and have 3 times the active player base of a game like Rift, well there you go.

 

We don't have any idea how things will settle.

Heck yes. Only one of like 5 dragons have been introduced. Two entire continents have not yet been released. They've yet to add the crystal desert and the ring of fire isles to this release. So yea there's a lot of content lined up. Whether this content is going to be free or paid is a different story though.

My only concern with GW2 is me running out of content to work towards fairly soon, I mean I have lots of lower level areas to complete, but that is something I will do at a certain pace, its not something I am going out of my way to just finish in one guy, mainly cause it gets a bit boring quickly for me personally.

So for the minute I have a few things on my list, finish the high level areas I havent done, get my legendary weapon ( already working on it ), get the dungeons sets and do some WvW.

And my problem at the moment is that I can see light at the end of the tunnel, I am surprisingly enjoying the game quite a lot, but especially how quick I managed to complete Orr ( just shy of 2 days ), I dont see there being much content left after I finish grinding the dungeons for the sets and get a legendary weapon. I will continue to do some WvW as I am really enjoying it, but my hopes are that they will add more content ( paid or not ) as I start to get bored of PVP and run out of interesting things to do.

I am hoping for more WvW, mainly improvement upon the model make things more interesting and hopefully more interesting maps.

And events akin of Orr but much more complicated that require a constant server push of some sort, rather than the "that waypoint is contested", would be nice to have an area with a more streamlined event with a front line of sorts and with zone wide effects going on.

How is this different than any other MMO that is newly released?

How is this different than any other MMO that is newly released? 

Naa im pretty sure WoW has kept me entertained for more than a month after release and even the release of a new expansion. This is me personally, I couldnt give two shits about what other people feel is fun for them or what they feel I should be doing, I am only saying this cause I do like the content I am playing at the minute, there just isnt much more of it to keep me entertained passed a certain mark.

For instance I would dread to be level 31 or whatever after playing 100h like some people have posted here, the lower level areas are so crap compared to the high level stuff, I dont know how people manage the mindless lower level grind for so long, sure I will complete every single area, because thats the way I roll but defeating the centaurs for the 100000th time and just standing there attacking a mob while its zerged down was more than enough when  I was leveling. 

End of the day I am hoping for more content, and please dont turn this into a dick measuring contest, I am not talking about other MMOs you brought it up, I personally want more content I enjoy paid or not, because I feel its going to run out soonish. Ohh and more challenges.

If I had my way the way Orr is tuned would be the first thing you get in game, and then I would have worked from there and up, making even more interesting and challenging stuff. WvW is about right for now, needs more stuff happening in the emptiness of the maps, and more people allowed in.

ANET will be delivering more content but probably not quick enough for your pace

content updates will hopefully not be any slower than RIFT

Well, they have so far patched at least very second day since launch so they hav eso far put a lot of post launch work into the game. I think they will do like in GW1 and add some zones like Drok for free while they add most of the content in expansions and campaigns.

And those will cost you money and be more common than Wows expansions, maybe one every month or so but they will add plenty of content. Unlike companies like FunCom is ANET actually fast to add content.

So I wouldnt worry too much except that you might need to cough up $45 this spring.

For me personally I think the tuning was off, as I said on the edit I did on my previous post, Orr type of difficulty would have been about the 3rd zone you get to, and I would have kept scaling up in difficulty and challenge from then on, even with zergs or not, Orr is not trivial and that  is one of the things I like about it. 

I feel like too much of the content was too easy, all they need to do to keep me entertained is to have a zone with a much higher difficulty, and with much larger zone wide consequences to get people working together.

But yeah if they are delivering regular content updates then I am happy with that, I mean logically you cannot backpedal after you led people to Orr I wouldnt expect a worse experience from then on, so hopefully we can only get more interesting content.

More WvW stuff would be cool too, but for the minute I am having stil lots of fun and I only mainly play on my server instance, so I still have 2 more instances to truly experience to death, before I am bored of it, also the experiences have been varied enough so far.

 You're really reaching man. Not sure how you know they don't have the monetary income of p2p titles. Pretty big assumption you're making there they won't because of the sub.

1. For god's sake mmo gamers, enough with the analogies. They're unnecessary and your comparisons are terrible, dissimilar, and illogical.

2. To posters feeling the need to state how f2p really isn't f2p: Players understand the concept. You aren't privy to some secret the rest are missing. You're embarrassing yourself.

3. Yes, Cpt. Obvious, we're not industry experts. Now run along and let the big people use the forums for their purpose.

I'm going with it depends on how well the gem shop does?  IF they are making a good amount of money off of there they will probably release more content without an expansion.  But,  I would expect for new dungeions and areas to have to buy an expansion.

What?? but I thought this is buy to play? So they will charge for updates other MMOs get for free included with the sub?

sounds like a scam model then.

Didn't they say expansions will not be as regular as Gw1's but more than likely 12months instead ?

I'm sure someone posted the article on this board at one point

I doubt it - not like Rift - Trion has added so much stuff since launch its like a completely different game now it's pretty damn impressive. 

It would be awesome if Anet adds a lot of free content, I am thinking minimal content patches and then major content updates via paid expansions.

I find it strange that there's no official infomation on this.  This is deffinitely one of the things to find out before you purchase the game.  You're gunna wanna know what you're getting in hte long term.  Strange there's no info on it really.(I'm guessing there isn't, due to the nature and speculation of the posts in this thread).
