Guild Wars 2: Launch Times

All the writers of TGN are in total Guild Wars 2 mode here. I, for one, am quite anxious to get in and see some higher level zones on my Charr Guardian than I was able to in the Beta Weekends. Luckily, AreaNet has done us all a favor and emailed out the exact times the servers should go live so we can get to work leveling as soon as possible.

Details below:

The information below will give you specific details about times and dates based on whether you pre-purchased, pre-ordered, or are picking up a copy of the game on release day. For those players who have not pre-purchased or pre-ordered the game, Guild Wars 2 will officially launch at 0:00 AM Pacific time (GMT -7:00) on August 28th.

Pre-Purchase with 3-Day Headstart: Everyone who pre-purchased Guild Wars 2 will enjoy three full days of Headstart Access. The three-day Headstart Access will officially begin at 0:00 AM Pacific time (GMT -7:00) on August 25th. However, please note that in order to ensure we’re fully prepared for that fateful hour we may bring servers online up to 3 hours prior. If you’re a player committed to getting in first to grab that character name of your dreams you’ll want to be keeping an eye on things during that time period.

Pre-Order with 1-Day Headstart: Those who pre-ordered Guild Wars 2 will be able to participate in one day of Headstart Access. 

The one-day Headstart Access will begin at 0:00 AM Pacific time (GMT -7:00) on August 27th.  NOTE - Pre-Order code registration is now enabled.

For us east coasters that will mean a midnight start time. See you in Tyria!
