Three versions of ArenaNet's Guild Wars 2 MMO is now available for pre-purchase should you feel so inclined. Guaranteed entry into beta weekends awaits all who take advantage.
An exclusive in-game item called the Hero's Band is also promised, offering a "broad range of power boosts" to characters. A three day head start is also in the cards.
Pre-orders and pre-purchase and two different things as the latter gives over your cash right now, as opposed to when the game is about to ship. Pre-orders get one day head start.
The three versions available to be pre-purchased are:
The Standard/Digital Edition:
- Guild Wars 2 serial code (to activate the game at launch)
- Guaranteed access to Guild Wars 2 beta events
- Three day ‘headstart’ access to Guild Wars 2 at launch
- Exclusive ‘Hero’s Band’ in-game item
The Digital Deluxe Edition:
Includes the digital features of the Standard Edition (as above) plus 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.
The Collector’s Edition:
For the complete Guild Wars 2 experience, the Collector’s Edition includes all of the contents found within the Standard Edition and Digital Deluxe editions, plus:
- A 25 centimetre hand-painted Rytlock Brimstone statue wielding a flaming sword
- 112 page Making of Guild Wars 2 hardback book
- Best of Guild Wars 2 Soundtrack CD
- A custom art frame complete with portfolio and five Guild Wars 2 art prints

The Collector’s Edition carries an SRP of €149.99/£129.99, the Digital Deluxe package €74.99/£64.99 and the Standard/Digital Edition €54.99/£49.99. The MMO sequel is free-to-play like the original. Visit the official if you just can't wait to slap down your hard earned cash.
