The deal will go live this Saturday, January 24, starting at 8 AM PDT through the official Guild Wars website. The promotion ends at 11:59 PM PDT on January 25.

The Digital Deluxe version of Guild Wars 2 will also be on sale for 75-percent off this weekend, meaning you can pick up the $60 package for only $15.

Coinciding with the Guild Wars 2 price promotion will be a double XP event, which will also run all weekend long. Also, this weekend only, players can buy additional boosters for 15-percent off.

ArenaNet has also announced plans for this weekend's first-ever PAX South in San Antonio, Texas. On Saturday, January 24, ArenaNet will hold a presentation called "Guild Wars 2: Beyond the Point of No Return," featuring panelists such as co-founder Mike O'Brien and game director Colin Johanson.

The event, which will be hosted by voice actress Jennifer Hale (Mass Effect), will be streamed live through Twitch. The panel promises to deliver an "exclusive sneak peek at what's next for the award-winning MMO."

I just started playing this game again a few days ago after a year break. Honestly I forgot how much fun the combat is, how much different stuff there is to do, and just how well polished this theme park MMO is. $10 with no sub fee is a freaking steal.

<< LINK REMOVED >> The promotion begins at 8 am Pacific Daylight Time. So, for me in the East Coast US I have to wait till 11 am before I can get it for 10 dollars.

I always check out this website before buying any products in games world - << LINK REMOVED >> .This my personal favorite place because the prices are low most of the time. For Steam however, they only lower in sales. Which turns out to be a good deal.

I often thought about getting this, because a lot of people said it can be enjoyed as sort of a single player RPG rather than an MMO, but with the MMO benefits of more added content. I think for $10, I'll get it, if I don't forget :).

It cannot be enjoyed as a single player RPG. Unless you have very low standards. The starting areas are basically empty of players so it basically is a single player RPG. This news will probably bring in a few more players though.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Rubbish. With the megaservers, it doesn't make the starting areas 'empty' as you say. Sounds like you haven't been playing for a while.

pve/living world contents gets old quickly but the real fun begin with the end game content, aka WvW.

wvw mode is what make this game truly shine imo.

It was a good game. I got 100% world completion, but that was in the first 7 or so months. Haven't really picked it up since, partially because the new content they DID release was part of that stupid "living world" crap meaning I missed out on it and now I am permanently behind. I wish they would have instead released full fledged expansions with new continents and zones and questing areas.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Season 2 of the living world can be played for free when they released the update, or by spending 200 gems on each episode (8 epi in total). And they can be replayed at any time. Since you've missed them, then you'll have to pay to unlock them. 2 new maps have been added as well. You can also play with others in their story instance, to get a glimpse as to how the story goes.

keep in mind the sale only starts during the weekend, so it's still going for 39.99 right now.

Not even worth 10 bucks. ArenaNet ruined the franchise with this version of Guild Wars 2. The original was fantastic and yet they found a need to fix something that was never broken in the first place. I'm surprised people still play this monstrosity.

Call me when they've tripled the number of weapon skills.


Until then, this game is dead to me.

I actually haven't played in a long time now. Did they ever increase the level cap or add new areas? Just curious.

<< LINK REMOVED >> well there were two zones added in 2014 with some of the best designed meta-events, a WvW map that isn't taken all that seriously (it doesn't count towards score for reasons i can't bother explaining now), a bunch of features, and 1 new trait per line per profession (so 40 new traits total, 5 per profession). those are the biggest changes i can think of. oh and the story got a few more instances every now and then, totalling quite a few hours of playtime. though they were only free when they first came out (you have to dish out 200 gems, approx US$2.50, per episode, but they might pack them all in a bundle eventually)
