After initial successes in 2008, Guild Wars continued their feet on the future pathway. Here are the content of the update.
Throughout the year, our regular monthly builds will include Xunlai Tournament rewards, changing out the Zaishen chest monthly tonic, and map rotations for Automated Tournaments. These builds may also include small skill balance changes, tweaks to AI, or bug fixes on an as needed basis.
Content updates will be done separately from the monthly maintenance and occur every three to four months. By spacing out our content releases, to tackle larger and more difficult projects that, previously, would've been impossible. Some features that once seemed unattainable are now being explored as upcoming projects. With this new system, the new content in fewer yet more substantial updates.
The Live Team is now designing the first big content update of 2009, which is expected to release in April.
Here are a few features we are currently developing for April:
Increases to account-based storage
Improvements to character-based storage
Account-based changes to the Hall of Monuments
