If you haven’t already pre-ordered Guild Wars 2, today is the day it becomes available for you to get your order in with one of the three versions, standard digital edition, digital deluxe or collector’s edition which is obviously the more costly.
Players who pre-purchase the Guild Wars 2 Collector’s, Digital Deluxe or Standard/Digital Editions will receive guaranteed entry into beta weekend events and a three-day headstart prior to launch. As a bonus, players who pre-purchase any edition will also receive an exclusive Hero’s Band, providing their Guild Wars 2 characters with a broad range of power boosts.
