Ahh.... guild wars 2.  Many people I know are, and have been, looking forward to this game.  For those who may be interested, you can sign up for the beta here!  But, only for the next 48 hours!

It's only for win, no mac.  Here's the FAQ, and here's some 'highlights' I suppose:

Quote
When will there be a beta?
We began closed beta in December of 2011. The feedback from these tests will determine when we will do public beta tests and ship the game. Guild Wars 2 is a very large and ambitious game, and Guild Wars players rightfully have very high expectations. We want players to be absolutely blown away by the game the first time they experience it.

[...]

How many professions does Guild Wars 2 have?
Guild Wars 2 will have eight professions with very distinct play-styles and skills. We have currently announced the elementalist, the warrior, the ranger, the necromancer, the guardian, the thief, the engineer, and the mesmer.

How will character progression work? Will you be raising the level cap?
Guild Wars 2 will have the kind of extensive character advancement appropriate to a persistent-world RPG. Our goal is to avoid forcing players into the grind-based gameplay that too often accompanies a high level cap.

Also, to allow players the freedom to play together even if their friends are at a much higher (or lower) level, we are planning to implement a strong sidekick system, similar to that used in City of Heroes™.

We're applying this same philosophy to competitive play. Players will be able to engage in organized, balanced PvP (similar to GvG in the original Guild Wars) without first leveling up characters, finding equipment, and unlocking skills. While inside the organized PvP area, all characters will be the same power level and will have access to the same equipment.

[...]

What are the system requirements for Guild Wars 2?
The system requirements haven't been finalized, but just as with the original Guild Wars series, we're committed to creating a beautiful game that will play great on mid-range gaming PCs.

[...]

Do I need to sign an NDA to participate in a Guild Wars 2 Beta Event?
Yes. All participants are required to sign an NDA. All content in the Guild Wars 2 Beta Events is confidential. If you are participating in a Guild Wars 2 Beta Event, you should also not disclose that you are a participant.

What does NDA stand for and what does that mean for me?
NDA stands for Non-Disclosure Agreement. An NDA is a legal contract between ArenaNet and you that states all content in the Guild Wars 2 Beta Events is confidential. By signing the NDA, you agree to not disclose that you are a participant in a Guild Wars 2 Beta Event and to not disclose any information about the content. Breaking the NDA can lead to legal proceedings.

[...]

What languages will the Guild Wars 2 Beta Events be in?
English, German, and French.


The game is based 250 years in the future from the original, so there will be new technology and such... and... well there you go!  Beta sign up for those who are interested, hopefully someone will get in and actually enjoy/help/etc!

Looks pretty awesome but so different from Guild Wars.

Looks kinda too much like WoW and i used to play GW for a break from WoW, not sure if I'm gonna get it.
