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.
