While there is little new info on the FAQ it does reveal that players will be able to play a variety of non-human characters in addition to humans. There will also be a sidekick system that's similar to another NCsoft game City of Heroes. More info about the lore and races of Guild Wars 2 will be revealed later this year and gameplay info will begin to be revealed early in 2010. Naturally there is still no official release date.
