Product Title: Guild Wars 2
Description: Massive Online RPG w/NO monthly fee
Created by ArenaNet, Guild Wars 2 follows in the footsteps of its predecessor (Guild Wars) by offering a traditional role playing game in a social online environment. The sequel was first announced in 2007 and after five years of work, it was released in August of 2012. Guild Wars 2 combines the creativity of a traditional tabletop role playing game with Lord of the Rings-level world-building.
The game allows players to create a character (chosen from 5 different races, each with unique skills and abilities), establish a back-story, and outfit them with purchased, crafted or scavenged armor and weapons… all while adventuring either solo or with other players online.
The game has sold over 2 million copies worldwide and is consistently played by more than 400,000 people each week. There is no subscription fee, but players are still required to purchase the game.
