As you may know, the first public Beta Weekend Event for Guild Wars 2 is now underway! If you've pre-purchased the game, you should now be able to log in and play. If you haven't, you can still pre-purchase the game, but apparently not at the official website: Currently, potential buyers are being turned away as both the Standard Digital and Digital Deluxe editions are marked as SOLD OUT, citing the message:
Sorry! Guild Wars 2 is currently sold out.
To ensure the highest quality service we have temporarily limited the number of copies of Guild Wars 2. As more capacity becomes available, we will make Guild Wars 2 available for sale again.
In the meantime, we encourage you to visit our retail partners , who may still have copies available.
Ouch! If you can't get ahold of a pre-purchase, be sure to visit our GW2 Livestream at http://www.twitch.tv/guildwars2guru, where the eager folks at Guild Wars 2 Guru will be streaming as much of the Beta Weekend Event as they possibly can.
Speaking of Guild Wars 2 Guru, the site has been re-launched, bringing to you a newer, better forum system and a shiny new design. Plus, the first and best database for Guild Wars 2 has been launched alongside - we're proud to announce GW2DB.com!
By the powers of these two information beasts combined, no player shall go wanting for anything GW2-related. Information about all known items, gear, recipes, achievements, traits, skills, and locations are set to go, and will be updated religiously.
