More than a week ago, we brought you the Guild Wars 2 server list as well as launch times, nearly a week ago, we talked about how Guild Wars 2 was being prepared with another stress test. Not only that, there was also a released dungeon footage of level 50 in Guild Wars 2, known as Twilight Arbor, while earlier this morning, we stumbled upon a Guild Wars 2 player who managed to hit level 80 in just two days of gaming. This might sound rather strange, as the official press release concerning the launch of Guild Wars 2 was released just less than an hour ago, but bear in mind that over a million fans who paid for the game in full had the advantage of a 3-day headstart.
I guess the early bird syndrome has struck again with the level 80 character, but more on the Guild Wars 2 launch. The game itself experienced a peak concurrency of over 400,000 players online simultaneously, and it is an early sign that leans on the positive that online gamers definitely have an appetite for Guild Wars 2.
O’Brien, president and co-founder of ArenaNet, shared, “This is the culmination of a five-year journey and to be greeted by this level of enthusiasm by our fans is truly amazing. But really our work is just beginning. Now our focus is shifting to building on this living world we’ve delivered, continuously refining our game and improving services to ensure our players have the best possible experience”.
