ArenaNet and China publishing partner KongZhong Corporation have announced that the Chinese version of Guild Wars 2 is now in open beta testing for those who pre-ordered the game. Guild Wars 2 will keep the same business model as the West, where players pay to purchase the persistent MMO game once and can continue playing and enjoy consistent releases of new content free of charge.
These updates include Guild Wars 2's frequent releases of Living World content that adds new game play and story. That means game content will largely remain the same for all players, with the exception of some adjustments to the new-player tutorial that are designed for and requested specifically by Chinese players.
