Guild Wars: Eye of the North - first screens

Screenshots from Guild Wars: Eye of the North are letting our eyes rove over what ArenaNet is describing as "the first true expansion" for the Guild Wars franchise.

Eye of the Northwas officially announced today. Due in Q3 2007, it requires any one of the three previous Guild Wars releases to play and ArenaNet says it will "benefit long-time players of the Guild Wars games, with all of the content targeting existing Guild Wars characters."

The expansion features 18 large, multi-level dungeons, 150 new skills across all 10 Guild Wars professions, 10 new Heroes, 40 new armor sets and additional items, weapons and titles. It's set largely in the dungeons and caverns of the lands of Tyria that players first explored in Guild Wars Prophecies, ArenaNet has explained.
