It's another free beta weekend. I played the alpha back at the start of the summer, it lasted 3 days when the E3 event was running. It's a great game, kind of a mix between you're typical fantasy MMO, and a multiplayer team shooter like UT.
THe best game type in it was the instanced quests, when 4 people go off on a lengthy quest, fight monsters, solve puzzles and achieve some objective (pretty tough too) THere are also various other modes like team DM, protect the king etc
I'm definitely getting this game when it comes out later in the year, the best thing about it is there is no monthly subscription fee, even through it's a persistent world where you level up like other MMOs, and you don't have to sink time into it like other MMOs, just log in for a bt of fun when you feel like it.
Come on guys, we definitely need a Dark Mod team!
Just download the beta client from fileplanet. THe beta starts on Friday, and lasts all weekend.

That sounds interesting. The primary reason why I don't like to play World of Warcraft or other online games is the fee. I have no problem with paying for it, but a monthly fee gives me the feeling that I'm forced to play. I rather would pay per play kind of. So I can enjoy a game when I want to, but not being forced to play all the time just to get a return value for my money. And 10-15 USD is way to much just for that. If they stay with this policy I might check it out. :)

If I'm not busy I'll be there I finally got to download the game but not from fileplanets site I had to go to the source for some strange reason, but I am willing to play. Spar I have the same problem with online games they cost you to buy then you're paying for the rest of your life...kinda like pay TV or whatever, I'd never pay to watch 400 changes of crap so I won't pay to watch people stuff the gaming fun of others ie: all the hacks that think that because their character or car can fly that they are better

Well, I'm playing now, lvl 4 monk/warrior Grimoire Pai, if anyone fancies a quest. Still haven't managed to complete the first one yet, it's damn tough.
It's free and it's fun - what more do you want? It's only a 20 Mb download as well

Since there are people, who already downloaded the file, it may be that they share it. *HINT* Oddity. :)

You also need a serial number though, and I'm pretty sure that can't be shared. I don't know what mine is anyway, I just copied and pasted it from fileplanet directly into the Guildwars request box.
Still, there will be another beta soon.
