Rejoice! After five long years of waiting, today marks the official release of the highly anticipated and critically acclaimed Guild Wars 2 from ArenaNet. The pre-purchase headstart period three days before launch smashed expectations and peaked at over 400,000 simultaneous players online at once, and was merely a precursor for the massive wave of fans looking to dive headfirst into Tyria. Once a retail serial code has been added and a character has been created, players can choose from a variety of activities to participate in.
The personal story is an engaging, fully-voiced experience that players can repeat with different races and choices for a unique experience every time. Structured PvP throws teams into an arena for a fight to the gruesome death, and World vs World pits three servers against each other in a two week long battle for fame and glory. Within all of these options, there's an incredible amount of content to see. Dynamic events, vistas, jumping puzzles, crafting, RC Golem Chess. The list could very well outmatch one produced by the fellow in red every year.
