See the world in Guild Wars Factions

NCSoft's massively multiplayer expansion pack Guild Wars Factions will hit PC this spring, expanding the game's geography and gameplay features. We've got some lush new images of the terrific topology that Guild Wars gamers will be exploring.

These shots show the new continent of Cantha, a fascinating Asian-inspired land. This country has seas of solid jade, a hostile petrified forest and an atmospheric mix of Eastern mysticism, karmic-like teachings and a seedy, unwholesome underbelly to the many cities.

Factions isn't that far off from renovating the Guild Wars world, so expect to see more in the next few weeks.
