Guild Wars: Factions is the second standalone campaign in the Guild Wars series from ArenaNet. In Factions, the two warring factions of the cultured Luxon and the pirate-like Kurzik are at each other’s throats, struggling for control of the vast continent of Cantha. Like the famed Great Northern Wall of Ascalon, the war has reached an impasse, and players are thrust into the events of this new continent.
There is much new content including a completely new PvE campaign, new gameplay modes for both PvE and PvP (competitive missions, challenge missions and alliance battles), and new skills and armor. Also introduced are two new professions. As with the original, purchase of the game allows unlimited free play.
Guild Wars Factions has received Billboard's DEMMX (Digital Entertainment Marketing and Media Excellence) Award for Multiplayer Game of the Year. Factions is the second in the ever-expanding Guild Wars franchise.
