Guild Wars 2 enjoyed an incredibly popular head start weekend with around 400,000 concurrent players recorded at one point.

Prior to launch around one million fans pre-purchased the game to ensure they would receive early access to the game, its official launch is today. “This is the culmination of a five-year journey and to be greeted by this level of enthusiasm by our fans is truly amazing,” said Mike O’Brien, president and co-founder of ArenaNet.

“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.”

Were you part of early access? What do you think of the game? Let us know in the comments below.

He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
