Guild Wars 2 is a Free to Play [F2P], Role Playing MMO Game [MMORPG].
By making the core Guild Wars 2 game
Free, ArenaNet is lifting the final barrier for MMO fans everywhere
to play one of the most popular games in the genre and join a player
community widely recognised as one of the best in online games. The
move to free reinforces the studio’s strategy with its MMO business
model. Like the company’s previous games, Guild Wars 2 launched as
a buy-to-play game without a subscription. It has since delivered
more than 40 major content updates to players free of charge. While
the core Guild Wars 2 is now available to play for free, Heart of
Thorns [the new espansion] will launch as a buy-to-play experience
without subscription fees.
Guild Wars 2 is a visually stunning
MMO, a living world that offers players the epic grandeur of a
massive role playing environment combined with innovative combat
mechanics, dynamic events and customized personal storytelling, as
well as fast-paced competitive play with team-based PvP and massive
World vs. World battles. Building on the success of Guild Wars,
ArenaNet™ has created an MMO that lets gamers play the way they
want, while at the same time retaining the no-subscription-fee
business model that made the original Guild Wars so popular.
