Guild Wars 2 features a subscription-free business model that allows players to enjoy the entire online experience for just one initial purchase
NCsoft and ArenaNet have announced Guild Wars 2 is available today for Mac in a beta version to anyone who purchases Guild Wars 2. The Mac beta version of Guild Wars 2 is still being optimised and, unlike other betas, is connected to the live servers allowing everyone to play together on both Mac and Windows based computers. Users will be able to access the Mac beta client through the Guild Wars 2 account management website after activating their game code.
To deliver this support, ArenaNet is partnering with TransGaming whose Cider technology dynamically translates between operating environments. This approach means that future updates to the game will also be available for Windows and Mac simultaneously.
