The lights are on
Congratulations to ArenaNet for having a bona fide sales hit to go along with their critical accolades and runaway hype train.
According to a press release from publisher NCsoft, the subscription-free MMORPG has sold through more than two million units, passing that milestone shortly after the company resumed digital sales. More than 400,000 players have been regularly logged in to the game concurrently across all territories.
Guild Wars 2 topped the All Formats sales charts across ten European territories in its first week on sale.
GI's extensive experience with Guild Wars 2 indicates that all this success is more than justified. Check out our Test Chamber episode, our collection of dungeon-running tips, and details on the game's lack of subscription fee and microtransaction model for more.
This is really awesome. Glad to see another MMORPG have success since it always seems like a risky venture.
I finally broke down after watching Angry Joe's Review and bought Guild Wars 2. Best surprise of 2012. I hate almost every MMO I've ever played and Guild Wars 2 just blew me away. I think it's my favorite game of 2012 by a pretty good margin.
Good for them!!! Great!
This may just be the one that gets me into MMO territory. I'll need to tweak the old PC a bit to run it sufficiently, but everything I'm seeing and hearing about this game make me want it more than any other MMORPG I've seen.
Guild Wars 2... Ooohh how I wish to play you.
This is an enormous accomplishment. I'm honestly in awe, and very happy for the team. Excellent game, gentlemen
Being the first lvl 80 in my guild, I have to say that it's been a pretty good game all around. Better than any other mmo i've tried. If you really want a good challenge, play the entire story by yourself and melee only :)
Fantastic Game! I'm glad to see the good sale numbers
If you have not gotten this game yet and are looking for an MMO you have to, whoever is reading this. It is truly the best MMO that I have played. Well, maybe not EVE, but they are different types of games
Awesome game...can't get enough of it
