Guild Wars 2 unveils Great MMO Migration freebies and discount
ArenaNet is making it very hard for you to resist giving Guild Wars 2 a try, offering a deluge of giveaways and discounts.
The studio has launched its Great MMO Migration campaign, its boldest move yet to lure away fans from other mmorpg games and into the world of Tyria. The campaign is giving away 5,000 free copies of the hit online rpg though a video contest running until Tuesday, December 3 at 22:59 GMT.
Video entries should be 30 seconds long and show off a fan recital of "The Guild Wars 2 Oath," a Mad Libs-style pledge to the game, in a public place. Video contest winners will receive notification on December 10 via email or can check their names on a website list that will be posted.
Fans who don't want to create a public spectacle can still join the migration bandwagon by availing the game at 40% off its regular price. The nearly half-off discount lasts until December 3 and applies to both the Digital Heroic Edition box ($29.99 from $49.99) and the Digital Deluxe Edition ($41.99 from $69.99)
Developers are anticipating a surge of sign-ups with this latest recruitment campaign, so it gave a little extra incentive for existing fans to welcome the newbies.
All new arrivals to Guild Wars 2 will be given a Letter of Influence item, which can be given to guilds of the new players' choosing and will bestow special benefits.
