Guild Wars 2 is launching on Steam next week

Guild Wars 2 is experiencing a resurgence and has greatly increased its player base since its latest expansion release. End of Dragons brought a new continent to explore, new elite classes, and plenty of exciting new adventures for the players. Also, the game experienced an influx of players that were looking for a different experience coming from World of Warcraft. Developer ArenaNet has managed to create quite an exciting universe with plenty of locations to explore, a solid storyline, and polished gameplay mechanics that has become the favorite of a huge community over the ten years of life of Guild Wars 2. Now it's looking to expand to other platforms, and Steam is the most obvious choice.



Upcoming launch on Steam

Guild Wars 2 is launching on Steam on August 23, and the base game will be available for free to all players. It will give you access to a vast universe full of quests that you will share with all those that already play on the original client. You won't need to pay a subscription to enjoy the game or reach the max level, but the content corresponding to the Living World and the expansions can only be unlocked by buying it. 

"Guild Wars 2 has delighted over 16 million players for a decade with its subscription-free business model, epic collaborative open-world boss encounters, and revolutionary mount system. By launching on Steam, a whole new audience of players who have never had the chance to adventure with us will be able to experience one of the greatest fantasy worlds in gaming. Everyone at NCSOFT and ArenaNet is excited to welcome them into our amazing community."

If you are yet to discover Guild Wars 2, it will be a great opportunity for you to join millions of players in Tyria.
