Guaranteed access to all Beta Weekend Events with pre-purchase of Collector's, Digital Deluxe and Standard Editions
Starting April 10, players who pre-purchase the Guild Wars 2 Collector's, Digital Deluxe, or Standard Editions will receive guaranteed entry into all beta weekend events and a three-day headstart prior to launch, giving them the opportunity to be among the first to secure their character and guild names, NCsoft announced. As a bonus, players who pre-purchase any edition will also receive an exclusive Hero's Band, which will provide their characters with a broad range of power boosts as they venture into the world of Tyria in Guild Wars 2. The Guild Wars 2 Collector's Edition includes a detailed, hand-painted 10-inch statue of the bestial warrior Rytlock Brimstone wielding his signature flaming sword. Along with the Rytlock statue, players will receive a custom frame along with five Guild Wars 2 art prints from world-renowned artists, a 112-page Making of Guild Wars 2 hardback book, a Best of Guild Wars 2 Soundtrack CD by composer Jeremy Soule, and five in-game items, including a Mistfire Wolf that will fight alongside players and a miniature Rytlock who will accompany them on their travels through Tyria. A new video is now locally mirrored.
