Aye, the only thing that could make this better is an announcement for the official start of pre-orders for the Regular and Collector Editions of the game.

I do, however, hope that this means the Closed Beta client was exceptionally stable and that is why they are moving into a more open Beta so quickly, and not because of the wee bit of annoying backlash seen from the "non-signup" CB or from investor pressure. Seeing how a few MMOs that have recently been released have had rather rock-steady betas and client performance, that first thing is what I'm obviously betting on.

I guess this one will be my best Monday of the year (unless GW2 launches on a Monday, or I get Beta access on a Monday, both of which I really doubt :) .

2012 sees the first next gen MMO, and things will never be the same again afterwards.

OMG !

Finally we see the light at the end of the tunnel.
I cannot wait to pre order, and normally I don't go for collector's edition
but for Guild Wars...defo if there is one.

Ditto. I'm somewhat iffy on CEs as well (I view most of them as being pretty overpriced -- granted, this one might be as well, since they're not including the art-book, which is worth every penny). However, I'm most likely getting it simply because I like the devs and their ideas that much. Probably buying a copy for my other hardcore gamer relative as well, because he needs to be converted! XD

Here's to hoping it all goes well (not saying 'without a hitch', because that's pretty much impossible, especially with people's expectations).

If the CE includes extra character slots, then I will definitely be snagging a couple of them for me and the Mrs also.

@ArcherAvatar I work at Gamestop. The CE is 79.99 and I already pre-ordered it. It gives a ballpark release date of march. but it's rough and judging by this announcement it'll be later. But still. This is exciting :D

@Doctalen

Arena Net have a reputation of trying really hard to make their games playable on even the most modest computers, so don't despair.

However, if you haven't upgraded your rig in the last 5 years... this is the best time to think about doing so.

Best of luck!

@Doctalen They've been testing the game using older, out-of-stock cards, just to make sure it'll run on an as wide a range of machines as possible.
