Get geared up to be ready for launch!

Are you getting excited for the release of Guild Wars 2? We are! Have you got your pre-purchase or pre-order sorted out? I hope so! Either way, here is the launch schedule for the lucky people who get in early!
Officially the game is launching at 5PM (AEST) on August 28 for us regular types, but if you’ve pre-purchased the game you get three full days head start! That will officially begin at 5PM (AEST) on August 25, but they say they might bring servers online up to 3 hours before that — so if you want to grab xXx_ShadowWolfBlade_xXx or some other amazing character name, you’ll want to keep an eye on the servers around that time.
Pre-ordering the game will have nabbed you a one-day headstart, and that will begin at 5PM (AEST) on August 27.
Finally, assuming you’ve got your preorder or your pre-purchase or have otherwise made your account for Guild Wars 2, you can download the client from ArenaNet right now and keep an eye on that too, to minimise the download at launch – but if you’d like to save on quota, why not download all 14 GB of it from our file library instead?
