Guild Wars 2’s biggest fans can play the game early by buying the title in advance.
Fans who pre-purchase one of the upcoming MMO’s three editions (Standard, Digital Deluxe or Collector’s) from today, will be able to access all Beta weekends and will gain access to the product three days before the title officially goes on sales.
The Collector’s Edition has an RRP of 129.99 and features a hand-painted statue, art prints and a makeing-of guide.
As a bonus, players who pre-purchase any edition will also receive an exclusive Hero’s Band, which will provide their characters with stat bonuses.
"We’re thrilled at being able to give players the opportunity to pre-purchase Guild Wars 2 today," said NCSoft European sales and marketing director Sarah Rogers.
"In addition to the bonus content, every gamer who pre-purchases will have guaranteed access to future beta events. NCsoft remains focused on providing consumers with the best possible online games and services. This pre-purchase programme guarantees some of our most ardent and loyal fans the opportunity to enjoy an experience of the most anticipated game of the year before the game’s release."
