Guild Wars 2: Now Free to Play!

Just a quick note to say that Guild Wars 2 is free-to-play as of right now! Yep, they turned the switch immediately. :)

There are some restrictions, as was to be expected. Those are mostly to discourage spam (in mails, whispers and so on) and to encourage you to buy the game if you like it. That is, if you buy “Heart of Thorns”, your account will be upgraded to a standard account and the expansion will be unlocked. You will not have the chat and mail restrictions anymore then and you will have the regular amount of bag slots as well as 5 character slots just like everybody else.

Oh, and welcome to Guild Wars 2! :)


  1. I bought the game on discount earlier this year and have no regrets. Those 10 euros were the best 10 euros spent on an MMO! I don’t have an incentive to buy Heart of Thorns, though. I don’t really like the way the new areas work from what I’ve seen of it, and there’s enough for me to enjoy in the ‘basic world’. Looks like I’ll be limping behind the curve for a little while longer for this one!
