Guild Wars 2 FAQ Posted

Not much that we don't already know in this FAQ, I guess the biggest news from it is that, unlike previously estimated, the beta WON'T occur this year and is more likely to occur sometime next year closer to the release date. Here's a summary of the answers from the FAQ.

1. No subscription fees.
2. Persistent world
3. While having a persistent world, GW2 emphasises a strong narrative, extensive instanced gameplay, an anti-grind philosophy (although it's debatable if GW ever achieved that thanks to *cough* GW:EN *cough*) and strong support for competitive play.
4. Players will be able to pick a character from 5 races: The Humans, Charr, Asura, Norn and Sylvari.
5. They're adopting a sidekicking system similar to what they use in City of Heroes.
