Pre-purchases are now open for the first expansion of Guild Wars 2, Heart of Thorns. You can get it digitally by visiting the official site.
The game comes in three versions, each one of which provides you with different goodies. All of them though give you access to every Beta Session that’s planned to take place from here on after till the release of the expansion, the core game for those that don’t have it already and an extra character slot.
This means that if you are still not playing Guild Wars 2 you can now have access to both the content of the original game and that of the expansion by simply buying Heart of Thorns. ArenaNet explained that this is how they plan to roll out all future expansions as well as gave a few details on the acquisition of the extra character slot with a post they made today.
Guild Wars 2 is expected to see a huge update landing later today (Tuesday 23/6) that will lay the groundwork for the expansion. The new build will include among others the new specialization system, a rework on skill/trait acquisition, lots of balance changes and the rebuilt of Lion’s Arch.
If you have any questions on pre-purchasing the expansion let us know and we will get back to you with the answers.
