Guild Wars 2 Launches This August


ArenaNet has announced that Guild Wars 2, its highly anticipated next MMO, will officially be releasing August 28 in North America and Europe. In preparation for the launch, a final Beta Weekend Event will take place from July 20-22.

The next entry in the Guild Wars franchise will be subscription-free, and will launch at two separate price points: $59.99 for the basic digital edition, and $79.99 for the deluxe digital edition, which will contain a handful of in-game bonuses. There was a Collector’s Edition available, but it has long sold out.

Not surprisingly, ArenaNet is pretty stoked about this one.

“We’re offering gamers an experience that delivers on the promise of online gaming with a truly social experience in an immense, shared world,” said president and co-founder of ArenaNet Mike O’Brien.

“After five years of creation, development, and polish, announcing the launch date of Guild Wars 2 is a huge milestone for us, but the thing we’re most looking forward to is seeing gamers from all over the globe explore this world and begin creating their own stories.”
