Guild Wars II Pre-Purchase Offers Beta Key, Early Access
After many long years, the sun is about to set on the development cycle of Guild Wars 2, the sequel to one of the first massively-multiplayer online role-playing games to abandon the concept of monthly fees. Thus, ArenaNet and NCSoft have opened up their product to be pre-purchased for a variety of benefits sure to enrapture fans of the original and those interested in the direction of this new title.
By simply visiting http://buy.guildwars2.com and entering in the requested information, players become entitled to a day-one copy of Guild Wars 2 alongside two very enticing perks. The first bonus to be bestowed on early adopters is access to the game’s upcoming beta event, a process that has already begun to take registration for those with an access key. The next, possibly more desirable reward for pre-purchase is access to the complete game three days before it officially launches as well as a Hero’s Band item that is also exclusive to this particular brand of customers.
Three options for pre-ordering include a Collector’s Edition, Digital Deluxe Edition, and a Standard/Digital Edition. Regardless, choosing to pre-purchase any of these will result in the subsequent rewarding of a beta key, three-day early access, and the special Hero’s Band item. Guild Wars 2 has no official release date, but it is expected to launch later this year.
