With massive anticipation and announcement of pre-order for Guild Wars 2, ArenaNet are busy updating the FAQ website. Today’s updates answer questions about Beta Weekend Events, and how physical Pre-Purchase will work. ArenaNet also mentioned on its Twitter page that players will not be bound to NDA (None Disclosure Agreement) saying “beta Events mentioned as part of pre-purchase are not bound by an NDA, but the upcoming CBT weekend is!”

WhenGuild Wars 2 launches, customers will need to return to the retailer with proof of purchase to receive the full Standard Edition box and retail serial code. They will need to apply this retail serial code to their Guild Wars 2 account within five days to continue playing without interruption.
  • Standard Edition (Europe)—Customers will buy the Standard Edition Pre-Purchase box and receive their serial code. This is the only serial code customers will receive and will grant access to the Beta Weekend Events, three-day Headstart Access, the Hero’s Band digital item, and full access to the final live game. Customers will not need to return to retail to receive another serial code.
  • Collector’s Edition (North America and Europe)—Customers will buy the Collector’s Edition Pre-Purchase box and receive a Pre-Purchase serial code. They will then go to https://register.guildwars2.com and follow the on-screen instructions to create a Guild Wars 2 account and apply the serial code, which will give them access to Beta Weekend Events and three-day Headstart Access to the final game. When Guild Wars 2launches, customers will need to return to their retailer with proof of purchase to receive the full Collector’s Edition box with physical items and retail serial code. They will need to apply this retail serial code to their Guild Wars 2 account within five days to continue playing without interruption.
