NCsoft today announced that Guild Wars 2 will launch in both Europe and North America on August 28, 2012.
Building on sales of more than seven million units of the original game, Guild Wars 2 offers evolving dynamic events; customizable personal storylines that are unique to each player; Player vs. Player combat between small teams or massive armies; and most importantly, a shared online world where players work together as allies instead of as rivals — all with no monthly subscription fee.
“We’re offering gamers an experience that delivers on the promise of online gaming with a truly social experience in an immense, shared world,” said Mike O’Brien, president and co-founder of ArenaNet. “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.”
ArenaNet will focus on polishing Guild Wars 2 until release, which includes hosting a final Beta Weekend Event July 20-22, 2012.
Guild Wars 2 will be available for PC.
