Digital pack-ins include One Legacy armor, an 18-slot Mithril Box for increased loot carrying capacity, and 10 experience boosters that will help players level up faster.

A free trial for Guild Wars II will open for all players in North America and Europe beginning at 12:01 a.m. PDT on August 23. The trial period will end at midnight on August 25. Those interested in participating can sign up through the Guild Wars II website.

Guild Wars II was released in August 2012 and has sold over 3 million copies to date. ArenaNet announced earlier this week, citing data from DFC Intelligence, that the fantasy game is the fastest-selling Western MMO game of all time.

ArenaNet said Guild Wars II has the potential to see its player base double when it's released in China. To bring the fantasy MMO game to China, ArenaNet has partnered with KongZhong Corporation. No date for the game's release in China has been announced.
