MMO madness: Guild Wars 2 to release on August 28
ArenaNet has confirmed that Guild Wars 2 will release on August 28, and that a final beta weekend event will take place on July 20-22.
The date came in a teaser trailer. Watch it below.
Guild Wars 2 will be the largest MMO release this year. No subscription is required to play.
The game will cost €54.99/$59.99 for the basic digital edition and €74.99/$79.99 for digital deluxe edition.
A collector’s edition was issued, but has long since sold-out.
“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 Mike O’Brien, president and co-founder of ArenaNet.
“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.”
A final beta weekend event will take place on July 20-22.
