'Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns' Pre-Order Incentives - Trailer

by Rainier on June 17, 2015 @ 2:18 p.m. PDT

Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns is founded on the same gameplay philosophy as the core game and represents a re-envisioning of progression in an MMO with all-new features, profession, systems and more.

Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns continues the storyline that has the game world of Tyria facing off against the Elder Dragon Mordremoth. As the storyline unfolded through the game’s Living World updates, players had speculated about one possible casualty in the war with Mordremoth. In one cliffhanger, Tyria’s iconic hero Rytlock disappeared into a mysterious void as he chased the weapon to end the curse of the Foefire and drive the ghosts of Ascalon away for good.

In Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns, Rytlock not only makes a triumphant return from the mysterious Mists, he comes back with an all-new set of abilities. His return sets the stage for one of the expansion’s most exciting additions, the introduction of an all-new profession called the Revenant that channels powers from some of the Guild Wars universe’s most legendary heroes.

In addition to these features, ArenaNet showcased every key new feature the expansion brings to the core game, covering additions to both PvE and competitive PvP and World vs. World modes.  The trailer showcases each feature set, and set the stage for an ongoing series of updates now through launch that would delve much deeper into what each will bring to the expansion.

ArenaNet is offering a unique pre-purchase program with perks for all buyers that include access to upcoming beta weekend events along with a variety of virtual items available across three editions, some of which are immediately playable in the core game.

All pre-purchased editions of Heart of Thorns also include Guild Wars 2, letting new players who don’t own the core game instantly begin their journey into one of the most acclaimed MMO games of all time. 

Pre-purchasers can choose from among three editions of the expansion offering different levels of in-game perks and rewards, with all of them available here:

  • The Standard edition ($49.99) includes Guild Wars 2 core game and Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns, grants access to upcoming expansion beta weekend events, and gives players the exclusive “Maguuma Trailblazer” title.
  • The Deluxe edition ($74.99) includes everything in the Standard edition as well as an additional character slot, a miniature revenant Rytlock, a revenant finisher, the player’s choice of one of three Mordremoth’s Bane guild hall decorations, and a stylish glider skin.
  • The Ultimate edition ($99.99) includes everything in the Deluxe edition in addition to 4,000 gems, a $50 value.
