Guild Wars 2 Collector's Edition
Getting standard edition with collector's guide
I will most definitely be getting guild wars two the day it comes out. I just will not be getting this. It really doesn't appeal to me because of what little it comes with. The art book would be cool but I have no use for the extras like the metal box and figure. I will however be getting the hardcover strategy guide because it looks awesome. I'm not saying that this is a bad deal because i'm sure there are a ton of people who will awe over this, it is just not worth the extra 90$ in my own opinion.
Arenanet announced the release date!
And it is neither 6/26/2012, nor is it 12/31/2012 like Gamestop seems to say! The release date for this game, as announced today by Arenanet, is August 28th 2012! Check out GW2's website if you don't believe me!
Extremely worth the money
I've played every GW2 beta since November, with each release, the graphics are increased, and there's more to do, I made it to level 30 this past beta weekend, and did the first story dungeon. the game flows nicely(even though its beta) and the fact that basically anyone can use any weapon, and it changes their attacks is nice. My play style is a melee guy, so I was primarily playing the Guardian and Warrior, each were unique, and very fun, the ONLY downfall, is at the lower levels, a lot of the armor looks the same, but the same could be said about a LOT of MMOs. The fact that this is free instantly makes it worth the $150 price.
note to all who want beta access
please note that if you want the beta access you must PAY IT OFF THE DAY YOU PRE ORDER it or you wont get into betas and need to cancle it and re order if if you want it
Beta shows promise, release date not June.
After playing both of the Open Beta weekend events, I am psyched to play the third Beta Weekend. This is a great game to play with your friends, as I know since hype about it and my friends spread like wildfire. From Dynamic Events to the massively epic battlefields in World Vs. World, I have not had a moment of boredom after logging in. This game caters to everybody, Roleplayers, Hardcore PvP and PvE, as well as lots to do for even casual gamers. Wield your server pride as you lay siege to keeps in WvW, relax in any of the capitol cities with a few friends, show off your new armor set, or go berserk in structured PvP. What you do, how you do it, and how good you look while doing it is up to you. No subscription fees? Check. Beautiful visuals? Check. Release data? So far, it WILL NOT be the end of June, like it says on the site. It is coming soon, but as Arena Net states "It will be ready when it is ready." One more Beta Weekend is on the horizon, so I would urge anyone looking for a new PC title to bring a lot of content and enjoyment to the table, Guild Wars 2 does not charge monthly, and costs only as much as a single new PS3 or XBOX 360 game, depending on the version you purchase. I hope to see you in the Eternal Battlegrounds!
I bought it here online but I've read the comments about pre-order vs pre-purchase. which version is this one (online)
I have a question. Does somebody knows
If i place order now i will get a code for beta event at 08-10 June ?
All your answers on how Prepurchase works
Prepurchase ANY version gets you the 3 day early access. You can do any the Normal or CE at the local Gamestop PAID IN FULL!!! and you will get a print out for 3 day access and what your purchase includes. The code you use on the website will give you access to the forums in which you download the game inorder to do Beta Weekends,stress tests,etc. if your prepurchased only. Key word ONLY.
Can also do the digital or normal on GW2 website. And you can pay in full on Gamestop website but I prefer the store and you make sure you get your code(Local will be only for Normal or CE)(Digital is only online)
Pre Order does not give you the 3 day access or ability to do the BWEs and such.
Now if you do prepurchase and get on the forums to download the full game, only thing you need to do for the 3 day access is when it starts, simply download the patch on the client to have access. When the game launches the box will have a code you go onto the website so your play isnt interrupted after a week or so
writing based on video
I watched one of those videos looks like a few enemies with a lot of open space... kinda defeats the purpose of questing and having fun... honestly i haven't played guild wars 1 so i wouldn't know... but judging from the video the graphics are outdated, the combat is sluggish, and the enemies are far and wide ( emphasis on the far) gonna wait on more reviews to pop up
3 day headstart
I have been seeing the gameplay and am definetly interested in this game but I am wondering if i pre- order this CE fully in store at gamestop how will I get the 3 day headstart will i pick this up in store 3 days early?
