Just in case you’ve been itching to give Guild Wars 2 a shot but haven’t wanted to shell out the cash without first trying the game for yourself, ArenaNet has decided to open up a free trial period beginning August 23rd and lasting until August 25th. All you’ll have to do is register for a trial account, verify your email address, and download the game client. Registration is already open.
This is also a great chance to talk a friend into trying out the game. Check out the official announcement for all the details.
