Vanguard - CES Preview @ IGN
IGN has garnered a few more details regarding Sigil's Vanguard: Saga of Heroes from the CES show.
US, January 9, 2007 - Sigil opened the Beta 5 for Vanguard: Saga of Heroes last week, and the developer had the latest build on hand at CES today. Representatives told us at this point the work being done is mostly in regards to the game's balance.
Part of what differentiates Vanguard from other MMOs is its community aspect. Players are encouraged to work with others and build a community together. You can build your own house and decorate it with trophies won while questing. Then you can invite other players over to show off your stuff. You can make your house either public or private, with permissions available to be doled out to those you deem worthy.
