What is Guild Wars: Eye of the north?
Guild Wars: Eye of the north, also called GW:EN, is the first Guild Wars expansion. It follows the original Guild Wars campaign as well as the Guild WarsFactions and Guild WarsNightfall campaigns. GW:EN takes place in heretofore unexplored lands of Tyria, including the Far Shiverpeak Mountains, the Charr homelands, the shores of the Tarnished Coast, and even deep within dungeons that plumb the subterranean depths.

Yes. There will be a simultaneous worldwide release for GW:EN.

Do I need to own a copy of one of the previous Guild Wars Gold campaigns in order to play Guild Wars: Eye of the North?
Yes, because Eye of the north is an expansion rather than a new campaign—and because it is intended for your high-level characters—you need to own at least one of the Guild Wars campaigns—Guild Wars (the original campaign), Guild Wars Factions, or Guild Wars Nightfall—in order to play Guild Wars: Eye of the north. However, you do not need to complete any of the previous campaigns to play GW:EN.
