guild wars 2 worldwide launch

Guild Wars 2, the much-awaited sequel to the hit fantasy MMORPG Guild Wars, goes live today for the general public at 0:00 AM Pacific time (GMT -7:00).

Guild Wars 2 pre-purchase buyers have already spent three days exploring and leveling up in the fantasy online rpg as part of the Headstart Access privilege, while pre-order buyers have had a one day lead.

Players can create their characters from a combination of five playable races – Asura, Charr, Human, Norn and Sylvari – and eight playable professions – Elementalist, Engineer, Guardian, Mesmer, Necromancer, Ranger, Thief and Warrior.

A total of 21 US Worlds and EU Worlds will be opened to accommodate what is shaping up to be a deluge of players, with more to be opened should the population exceed expectations. ArenaNet has been closely responding to launch day problems and errors via the Guild Wars 2 official Facebook page, with the most common troubleshooting concerns answered and the rest redirected to the forums bank or customer service.

Like its predecessor, Guild Wars 2 will be a free online rpg after the initial box purchase, meaning there are no monthly subscriptions. There is a cash shop, though, but ArenaNet has assured players that it will contain mostly cosmetic items and will never be mandatory to become competitive in PvE or PvP play.
