Guild Wars 2 releases August 28; new trailer


In a move that is clearly an effort to provide an early birthday gift for myself, NCSoft and ArenaNet have announced that their subscription free MMO, Guild Wars 2, will be releasing August 28 in Europe and North America. Excellent timing for me, as now I can spend my birthday playing this highly anticipated release. Hello day off work for dual celebrations!

Mike O’Brien, co-founder and president of ArenaNet, had this to say following the announcement:

“We’re offering gamers an experience that delivers on the promise of online gaming with a truly social experience in an immense, shared world.

After five years of creation, development, and polish, announcing the launch date of Guild Wars 2 is a huge milestone for us, but the thing we’re most looking forward to is seeing gamers from all over the globe explore this world and begin creating their own stories.”

Following the announcement of the release date, the aptly titled ‘Get Ready’ trailer was posted. Check it out below, and let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
