ArenaNet is offering a trial weekend for Guild Wars 2 where MMO fans can download the game for free and figure out what all the fuss is about.
It’s been almost a couple of years since the game’s release and it has been a marvelous experience. The game does not have a subscription-based model but you still have to purchase it the first time for $50. In between there came a time when players were done with almost everything the game had to offer. To prevent them from leaving due ArenaNet has been working around the clock this past year to introduce new updates, missions, dungeons, the usual MMO stuff just to keep things fresh.
The free trial weekend begins on August 23 at 12:00 AM PST and will last until August 25, 11:59 PM PST. Those interested in trying the game for the first time should head over to the official Guild Wars 2 site and fill out a form. You’ll only need to enter your name, e-mail, password, birth date and display name. Once done you’ll be prompted to download the client.
Guild Wars 2 has been named the fastest-selling MMO in history based on both physical and digital sales.
