It nabbed a top ten slot on our recent countdown of the most anticipated games of 2012, and today we are very proud to announce that the special “pre-purchase” edition of ArenaNet’s upcoming MMORPG Guild Wars 2 will be available to buy on zavvi.com from midnight on Tuesday April 10th 2012… while stocks last. It’s currently listed as being “Sold Out” but this will change at midnight on the 12th. For more details, read on…
Guild Wars 2 is the second instalment in the franchise, and boasts spectacular pre-purchase bonus content, made all the more exclusive due to the limited amount of stock. Interestingly enough, the game is not in disc format; instead, you will be given a serial code with download and activation instructions. This code grants all the pre-purchase bonuses when the game is purchased after the 10th April (the date you will be charged), and gives you a three day head start before the full release of the game (Yet to be announced). You will also be guaranteed entrance to all of the beta weekend events, and be provided with an in-game item; a Hero’s Band.
From 10th April, players who pre-purchase the Guild Wars 2 Standard Editions will receive guaranteed entry into all beta weekend events and a three-day head start prior to launch, giving them the opportunity to be among the first to secure their character and guild names. As a bonus, players who pre-purchase any edition will also receive an exclusive Hero’s Band, which will provide their characters with a variety of stat enhancements as they venture into the world of Tyria in Guild Wars 2.
