Bonus Ennakkomyyntiversiossa (Standard Edition):
Guaranteed entry into all beta weekend events and a three-day head start prior to launch, giving them the opportunity to be among the first 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 provide their characters with a variety of stat enhancements as they venture into the world of Tyria in Guild Wars 2.
Guild Wars 2 is a visually stunning, world-class MMO but without the monthly subscription fee associated with other major MMOs.
The original Guild Wars series has sold over 6 million units worldwide, and continues to enjoy an active and loyal player base that eagerly awaits the sequel. The franchise launched in 2005 with Guild Wars Prophecies, and continued with Guild Wars Factions, Guild Wars Nightfall and the Guild Wars: Eye of the North expansion.
Guild Wars 2 builds on the rich lore and innovative gameplay developed in Guild Wars, but takes us 250 years into the future to a radically re-imagined Tyria.
