The time is coming closer. The call has been made. Saw this interesting post at and it should be noted here also. Can’t be caught with your pants down and that precious name Legalos is taken.

NCsoft recently sent out an email blast to inform the masses of the official headstart times for those who pre-ordered or pre-purchased Guild Wars 2. Notice that servers may launch up to 3 hours prior to the 25th.

The Final Countdown: Guild Wars 2 Launch Times

August 28th, 2012—the day Guild Wars 2 launches—is fast approaching. Everyone here at ArenaNet is anxiously counting the days right along with every Guild Wars 2 fan. As you may have seen, we host a countdown timer on the front page of our official website.

The information below will give you specific details about times and dates based on whether you pre-purchased, pre-ordered, or are picking up a copy of the game on release day. For those players who have not pre-purchased or pre-ordered the game, Guild Wars 2 will officially launch at 0:00 AM Pacific time (GMT -7:00) on August 28th.

  • Pre-Purchase with 3-Day Headstart: Everyone who pre-purchased Guild Wars 2 will enjoy three full days of Headstart Access. The three-day Headstart Access will officially begin at 0:00 AM Pacific time (GMT -7:00) on August 25th. However, please note that in order to ensure we’re fully prepared for that fateful hour we may bring servers online up to 3 hours prior. If you’re a player committed to getting in first to grab that character name of your dreams you’ll want to be keeping an eye on things during that time period.
  • Pre-Order with 1-Day Headstart: Those who pre-ordered Guild Wars 2 will be able to participate in one day of Headstart Access. The one-day Headstart Access will begin at 0:00 AM Pacific time (GMT -7:00) on August 27th.  NOTE – Pre-Order code registration is now enabled.

Head on over to the Guild Wars 2 official website and download the client and get your gaming on. I know as soon as I get my PC up and running I would be on the Guild Wars 2 tip. Now being a console gamer you know having a PC ready isn’t my style. PC gaming is expensive. Keeping up with hardware specs is rough on a mans budget. But Guild Wars 2 is worth the plunge. So for those who have already pre-ordered go and have fun for now… I will be there soon….
