Guild Wars 2 has officially launched overnight following a three-day head start by pre-purchasers, pre-orderers and other various VIP’s. To celebrate, ArenaNet have found their own horn and tooted it wildly, perhaps with good reason as the number of pre-orders for the game has hit a staggering one million.
ArenaNet also revealed that 400,000 people were logged in concurrently over the early access weekend, which may account for some of the mostly-resolved connectivity issues that many players were reporting. “This is the culmination of a five-year journey and to be greeted by this level of enthusiasm by our fans is truly amazing,” enthused ArenaNet’s Mike O’Brien.
Stay tuned later today for the first instalment of our Guild Wars 2 coverage.
