NCsoft has announced a pre-purchase program for Guild Wars 2 which starts on April 10.

Players who pre-purchase the Guild Wars 2 Collector’s, Digital Deluxe or Standard Editions will receive guaranteed entry into all beta weekend events and a three-day head start prior to launch, which will allow folks to secure their character and guild names.

As a bonus, players who pre-purchase any edition will also receive an exclusive Hero’s Band, which will provides characters with a variety of stat enhancements.

The Guild Wars 2 Collector’s Edition includes a detailed, hand-painted 25 centimeter statue of the warrior Rytlock Brimstone and his signature flaming sword as well as: a custom frame with five Guild Wars 2 art prints, a 112-page Making of Guild Wars 2 hardback book, a Best of Guild Wars 2 Soundtrack CD by composer Jeremy Soule, and five in-game items, including a Mistfire Wolf that will fight alongside players and a miniature Rytlock who will accompany them on their travels.

The Guild Wars 2 Collector’s Edition retails at $150 /€149.99/£129.99, the Digital Deluxe at $69.99/€74.99/£64.99 and the Standard Edition at $49.99/€54.99/£49.99.

More beta events are expected next month, and the game is out sometime this year.

    Rytlock figurine?

    Okay, this will be mine. This will be mine.

    I don’t really do collector’s editions as often it’s just plastic crap. I suppose this is, too. But it’s Rytlock Brimstone and I’m weak when it comes to the Charr.

    And ArenaNet really does love the Charr!

    I mean… first a plush toy, and now a figurine.

    Also, thanks for the update, Steph. I wasn’t aware this existed before this post. So for the first time a site has informed me about something Guild Wars 2 related that I didn’t already know about. >_>

    That’s quite an accomplishment. :P

    Also, it occurs to me just how much Rytlock is going to occur with this game.

    I’m going to have a figurine of Rytlock Brimstone standing next to a plush of Rytlock Brimstone which will in turn be next to framed concept art of Rytlock Brimstone, and in-game I will be a Charr being followed around by a miniature Rytlock Brimstone.

    There’s so much Rytlock Brimstone there that it’s getting meta.

    Not that I disprove. Quite the opposite.

    Looks impressive but expensive. But given there isnt a monthly fee, looks good value

    @2 Precisely! Think of how much money other companies are asking to provide services of lower quality at best (with the exception of EVE online.). It’s good to see that there are still companies that are not scared to innovate, companies that actually respect their customers. Thank you ArenaNet! :)
