Guild Wars 2 pre-purchasing begins with beta access

You may remember, a month ago, the announcement that pre-purchasing Guild Wars 2 would give you access to all beta weekend events. You may also have forgotten about that, as it was announced long before you could actually buy it it. But huzzah, the day is here, and you can now make sure you're enlisted for the beta fun.

Along with scoring access to every beta weekend event ahead of GW2's subscription-free launch later this year, pre-purchasing offers a three-day headstart before that, and a bonus in-game item.

You can buy it now in three editions, starting with the $60 Standard edition. $80 gets you the Digital Deluxe version, packing various exclusive in-game items. Then, the big daddy, there's a $150 Collector's Edition with a statue, the soundtrack, and more.

Here's a new trailer to celebrate it all:
