Good news, Guild Wars fans! NCsoft and ArenaNet have set an official release date of August 28, 2012 for Guild Wars 2 in North America and Europe. It's been a long time coming, but the sequel to the subscription-free MMO that was first released in 2005 is finally almost here.
Fans can expect a much bigger Guild Wars this time around, with a significantly boosted level cap over the previous game (from 20 to 80), a more streamlined progression system, boosted visuals that look outstanding on today's PC platforms, and plenty more. Maybe you've already participated in one of the game's betas? If not, you should definitely take a peek at our latest Guild Wars 2 hands-on preview.
