Pre-purchasing for Guild Wars 2 began today. I have been waiting for this for some time. Keep in mind that an official release date still has not been set yet. But that didn’t stop me or many other fans from pre-purchasing. Normally, I go for collector’s editions of games, and I looked at the one for GW2, but at $150, I just couldn’t warrant it for some stuff that is nice, but not very useful. I went with the Digital Deluxe edition for $80, which gives you some in-game bonus items. The important thing is just to pre-purchase from NCSoft, because that gets you access to the upcoming beta weekends and gives you a 3-day headstart before the official release to play the full game. Now I just sit and wait for that time to come.
