Interview With a Chinese Fan Site

Interview With a Chinese Fan Site -

Gaile Gray, the Community Relations Manager of AreaNet recently sat downto answer some questions from Guild Wars Zhong Guo, a Chinese Fan Site. This is the first time that Guild Wars have answered questions from a Chinese audience. It's worth the read. Here's a sample of what they have to offer:

When will Guild Wars be released in China? Will Guild Wars also be played without monthly fee in China?

ArenaNet and NCsoft look at China as a great place to offer Guild Wars. Chinese players enjoy the very type of game that our team has produced, and we're excited about the idea of launching there in the future. As for a release timeline, we have not yet settled on a date for the Chinese release. There are a lot of factors involved in bringing a game to a new part of the world, from localization to team building to selecting distribution partners in that area. We're actively working on these things and will be sure to post on our website when we have more information.
    When you ask about costs, the answer is that we want to offer players a number of choices concerning how they play the game and how they pay for it, as well. It has always been our intention to offer Guild Wars without a subscription fee. Once you purchase the game, you can play without an additional fee. In other words, the unique "no subscription fee" model for Guild Wars will carry over to China. However, to appeal to gamers who prefer to play without purchasing the game, we will also include time-cards that will allow a specific number of gameplay hours.
