    Season Five of Felicia Day’s The Guild Debuts July 26
    Hit web series will appear at Comic-Con with a panel on Saturday July 23 at 4pm

     

    Los Angeles, CA (July 15, 2011) – Season five of The Guild will return to Xbox LIVE on the Zune video Marketplace and MSN Video on Tuesday, July 26, sponsored by Microsoft and Sprint. Picking up where season four left off, season five takes the Guild members out from behind their computers and throws them into the real world like the show has never seen before, with new locations, guest stars, celebrity cameos and more!

    The Guild stars writer/creator Felicia Day (Eureka, Dollhouse, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog) as Codex, a lovable geek gamer addicted to an online role-playing game. Season five follows the characters of The Guild as they travel to a gaming convention called MEGAGAME-O-RAMACON. “Conventions like San Diego Comic-Con and Penny Arcade Expo have been a part of our experience promoting The Guild and connecting with fans,” says Felicia Day. “I wanted to bring that unique experience of a going to a con to the screen.” In addition to regular cast members Vincent Caso, Jeff Lewis, Amy Okuda, Sandeep Parikh and Robin Thorsen, season five will feature recognizable guest stars from the science fiction and genre community as well as over 200 extras.

    The Guild will appear for the fourth consecutive year at San Diego Comic-Con with daily signings at booth 4201 and a panel at 4pm Saturday, July 23 in the Hilton Bayfront Indigo Ballroom, Comicon’s second-largest venue. The panel will include a preview of season five and Q&A with the cast.

  • Warm_winters

    Is there any way to watch this if you DON’T have access to Xbox Live? I haven’t been able to find it on MSN.

  • Bunbun

    im sitting here on the website waiting for the first episode of season 5 and its not here :(

  • Warm_winters

    Oops. Disregard my last comment. I went and made an account on zune for free and was immediately able to watch the episode.
    Linkage for those like me who are way too poor to afford an Xbox. >>>> http://social.zune.net/tv/episode/The-Guild/Road-Trip!/4c9c4317-09ec-44ca-aa65-b5d341cf6f82

  • Organiclol

    show evolves around group of people that play a mmorpg “pc game” game yet the show is released to a console first…lol gg

  • Ink

    It says MSN video as well..Is there some exclusive MSN video that only goes onto Xbox that I don’t know about?

    • Heyhey

      No. In the past when they premiered episodes it went up on MSN video, which is like Google video or YouTube in that anyone can access it (which sucked because whenever you went looking around Bing for episodes you could never find the one you wanted, because Bing sucks hairy balls). People are just flipping out because this time Xbox live subscribers get the episode two days before it goes up on the web.

  • Swiftwing

    This is the beginning of the end. They sold out to the man.

  • JadeLeaf

    I’m so miffed that it went to xbox and the rest of us poor people who CAN’T afford xbox and xbox live will most likely wait for it to go to any other format. Like Organiclol said…the game is revolving around mmorpg players…and it’s being premiered on console despite the fact the large bulk of the fan base is on pc/mac? Serious error in judgement for a premier.

  • Shadechidna

    So…We’re forced to watch on Xbox live now? Fuck that.

    • Heyhey

      No. It’ll premier on Xbox live earlier than it will on the web. That’s all.

      From the way people are acting in the comments you’d think they went up behind a paywall or something.

  • Geordie

    C’mon the series is sponsored by MS and they decided to put it available first on their own console, i don’t see anything weird.
    And btw it’s just a delay of 2 days for pc users.
    Sorry for my crappy english.

  • Lucie

    THEY SOLD THEMSELVES, this was supossed to be a WEB series, WTF!!!! XBOX are freaking expensive I’m no millonaire!!!

    • Heyhey

      Dude. It’s only two days. Relax.

  • Grog

    Lame! I loved the show, and I am sure I still will, but seriously XBOX? The show even makes fun of console gamers…

  • guido

    So…. it’s july 27th… in the evening (in the Netherlands anyway)… and there is still no episode online ):

    Are you guys still sleeping? ¬¬

  • Admcogni

    The stupidity in these comments is incredible. The new season is not Xbox only, it will be on the website later today.

    • Nick S

      You mean Thursday (tomorrow). Not today. And the hubbub is about it only being available on a console for 2 days prior to the web release.

      • Admcogni

        You’re right, my mistake, it’s tomorrow, not today. For some reason I thought it was Thursday.

        Basically what it boils down to is people have an overblown sense of entitlement and don’t realize that the Guild needs to make money in order to survive.

    • Organiclol

      never said xbox only, i said to console first.

      • Tim the Enchanter

        Apparently, irony is lost on some people.

    • Geordie

      And probably all these guys commenting here that The Guild people sold their souls to the devil are Windows users -.-
      It’s crazy to have a funny time for free but they’re working, guys, they’re not only Codex, Zaboo etc.

  • Pablo78d

    it was announced to be on the 26 today is the 27th what happened

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dartania-Begoth/100002608519288 Dartania Begoth

    Completely sucks ballz that we PC gamers have to wait when the game is based on PC GAMERS!

    • Joei

      Well good thing we Multitaskers can watch it on the xbox and then blog about it on the PC :D

  • Warm_winters

    I’m not usually a jerk, but I posted helpful advice down below and people apparently ignored it.

    Holy crap! Those of you who are whining about not being able to watch the episode because you don’t have XboxLive… have any of you tried making an account on Zune? It’s easy and FREE. The episode is also available to download, for FREE. Just click the link to the website at the top of this page and follow the steps.

    Yes, you have to install some crappy software that you don’t need, but you can always uninstall it once all the episodes are out. Holy sh*t… Have a nice day.

    • Robinhood

      I installed Zune and when you go to “Buy” it says I can download it to Xbox. Wasted 20 minutes with the Zune software. And it removed my music libraries I had set up

      • Warm_winters

        Are you sure it completely removed your music libraries? It only moved mine, but if it did, then I’m sorry for the bad tip. As to the first part of your post, you have to download it in SD to watch it on your PC. HD is sadly only available on Xbox.

    • Lucie

      Thank you for your tip, but some people don’t want to keep giving their personal information to the 10000000000000000 sites that ask for it with the excuse of giving you something for free and installing software that ends up being malware or spyware.

      • Warm_winters

        That is certainly your right. I really meant my original posts for the people out there who kept complaining about how unfair it was that the episode was only available on Xbox. For the ones out there who are desperate to watch the episode, this way was an option. That’s all I was trying to say.

        • Lucie

          Thank you, for being so polite. It’s just, I wished they had published the online date. After all their succes is due to the internet viewers, isn’t it?

  • Guest

    I don’t know if msn is having problems with s5 e1 but I’ve been waiting for two days to watch it and it’s very annoying. I think people have a right to be mad that the episode premiered on xbox and zune before msn.

    • Loose_leaf_tea

      Why do they have a right to be mad about it?

    • Geordie

      “.. a right to be mad…”?? o.O

  • ThunderlarraThunderer

    OK maybe I am just missing something. I am in Australia it is now midday 28 July and the ep is nowhere online that I can find. WTH

  • guido

    Thursday 28… 4 in the morning CEST… still no guild ¬¬….

    o.ô

  • guido

    I’m also annoyed bout waiting, but I do think its really nice that Microsoft payed for the series. So lets give them kudos for that.

  • Thunderlarra Thunderer

    I have no problem with the early release on Xbox and Zune, Far from it if that is what is needed to get the show produced well done.

    What I have a problem with is a release date being announced and then the show not getting delivered to MSNVideo.
