GW2: Pre-Purchase **10th April**

GW2: Pre-Purchase **10th April**

Postby dirtYbird » Tue Mar 13, 2012 11:48 pm

The moment you have been waiting for and by the time you read this it will be at least 6hrs old.
BUT, fear not.....its not available until April 10th.
Must be getting close to release unless they have the same lengthy pre order period as SWTOR did.

Three options:
Digital Edition
Digital Deluxe
Collector Edition


Seems like the standard roll out these days.
You can find all of the extra goodies that come with the Deluxe and CE over at https://buy.guildwars2.com/

What will probably interest you the most is this, All pre-purchase editions include these exclusive bonuses:
Access to all Guild Wars 2 Beta Weekend Events
Three days of headstart access
Hero's Band (stat bonus)


I do like the 10-inch Rytlock figurine that comes with the CE.

Expected RRP.
Digital Edition ($60/£50/€55)
Digital Deluxe ($80/£65/€75)
Collectors Edition ($150/£130/€150)

Only need to purchase the Digital Edition to get beta weekend access.

Guild Wars 2 ‏ @GuildWars2
For those who have asked: Only pre-purchasing at one of the listed retailers after April 10th guarantees access to the Beta Weekends.

http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/User:St ... ilers_list

Australia
QVS
EBGames - CE

Nothing for NZ listed yet but list is a work in progress.

Guild Wars 2 ‏ @GuildWars2
One thing i want to mention: Our CE is very very limited, if you really want one, don't wait too long. You have been warned ;)


Guild Wars 2 ‏ @GuildWars2
There is no Digital CE. There is a physical CE (a box) which will be sold by retailers, and a digital deluxe edition (only digital)



NO Steam for pre order (could be at launch tho)

id say they will get it on steam since its a pretty big market they would like to capture,

ill be pre purchasing the digital deluxe version,

the latest i have read from the latest beta from the press NDA lift, it does sound pretty epic and everyone is liking it, the dungeons seem very very different to what we are use to.

should be good, im guessing mid year release around June, May if everything goes very very well, but yeah i recon we will see it june

Todays is the day! (in about 5hrs from now...5pm)
End of April is first of the beta events for pre purchase.
Pre purchase and Pre order are different.

i shall be doing this as soon as i can,

as db said there is a beta weekend planned for april date to still be decided.. if u pre purchase u get into all beta weekends planned until release. from what ive been told the game is very very good - had a mate in beta who didnt tell me much other than its awesome and u will like it.

my guess is still around june it will be released depending on how the beta weekends go but its fairly polished :)

All go now.
Just the basic digital for me.

Dirtybird.2790

This is a unique account identifier, consisting of a name and a randomly generated four-digit code. You'll use it during the Guild Wars 2 Beta Event, on the Beta Forums, and in Guild Wars 2 after launch. The name and four-digit code will be your handle on the Beta Forums. The four-digit code does not appear in the game itself unless another player chooses the same name, in which case both your name and the four-digit code will appear.

I should have read it first...there are a fuckton of dirtybirds!



Fuck it, changed my nick to something a little more unique.

Everyone gets it.
In game IF someone else chooses the same name then you get the numbers as well which will be visible.
For the forums you all have numbers showing.
Dogbolta.9846 doesnt think he will have any such issues. :ninja:

We limit sales to ensure we have enough capacity for our customers. We're likely to have capacity available after the initial crunch at the start of the weekend. Players who purchase when we're able to resume digital sales at buy.guildwars2.com will still be able to play for the remainder of the weekend.
