ArenaNet are today gearing up for the ever close release of the three day headstart event for their new MMO, Guild Wars 2. The event will allow players to begin their adventures in Tyria a whole three days before the rest of the populace is allowed in, giving them ample time to enjoy the peaceful bliss before a trampling horde barges in.
“Five years ago we set out to develop a game that finally fulfilled the promise of online worlds”, said O’Brien, president and co-founder of ArenaNet. “We questioned everything that had previously been taken for granted and we never settled for ‘good enough’. Now, we’re finally ready to introduce Guild Wars 2 to gamers who are looking for the next evolution in online gaming”.
“Guild Wars 2 is launching at a time when players are looking for something different in an MMO: a game that offers them an innovative and unique experience without a monthly subscription”, said O’Brien. “Guild Wars 2 is that game, and we believe it will fundamentally change the way people think about online RPGs”.
The event will begin at 5pm AEST for those who have pre-purchased the MMO. However for those who have only pre-ordered the game, you aren't being left out with ArenaNet planning for a one day headstart on Monday 27th August at 5pm AEST.
Guild Wars 2 will be officially available to all on Tuesday 28th August at 5pm AEST.
