Guild Wars 2 Hosting Free-to-Play Weekend

Posted by Londo629 on August 23rd, 2013

From August 23rd to August 25th Guild Wars 2 will be open for play free of charge.

If you've been itching for a chance to give Guild Wars 2 a spin but haven't felt up to putting actual cash into the game, this weekend may be your opportunity to find out if it's the MMORPG for you. Starting at 12:01AM on August 23rd and running until 11:59PM(PDT) on August 25th, Guild Wars 2 will be free-to-play. Interested gamers will only need to provide their name, email address, date of birth and nickname to start up and give it a try.

The clear hope with this weekend is to lure in more customers who may still be on the fence about buying Guild Wars 2. It's a fairly proactive move, especially when you consider that the game seems to be doing pretty well on its own. Just recently it was revealed that the title had sold more than three million units in the first nine months following its August 2012 release, a statistic that made it the fastest selling MMO in western history. The game, of course, relies on actual purchases to survive as it charges gamers only for the initial retail price. After that there are no subscription fees.

That in mind, efforts like this to garner the game more attention are something we can probably expect more of in the future. While the game's impending Chinese release will likely be a huge boon to sales, its long term survival is dependent on new players buying the game.
