Guild Wars Free Trialified

Possibly winning some sort of award for longest time between a game's release and it getting the demo treatment, Guild Wars now has a free trial wotsit. While you need to sign up for NCsoft's mildly irritating PlayNC master account thinger, you don't need to give out credit card details. So if you've yet to sample Arenanet's well-received subscriptionless, PvP-heavy fantasy MMO, now's your chance. Don't let the fact that only one member of RPS thinks Guild Wars isn't oddly characterless and overly mechanical stop you. (Pauses for angry protestations). It's fine! Just not my cup of elf-tea, y'know?

Meantime, has Guild Wars 2 been delayed as a result of publisher NCsoft's 'restructuring'? No-one seems entirely sure.
