Guild Wars 2 Accounts 'Global', Free Server Transfers At Launch
ArenaNet has detailed how Guild Wars 2's worlds/servers will work at launch and beyond.
Published on Aug 17, 2012
Guild Wars 2 accounts will be recognised by region but become global once registered, enabling players to move freely around any global server, ArenaNet has confirmed.
Guild Wars 2 server transfers will be completely free during the launch phase, enabling you to swich worlds with reckless abandon, but expect that to change when servers have settled.
"At launch, players will be able to transfer between worlds freely. However, once server populations have largely settled and stabilized, world transfers will be restricted to once a week and cost a variable amount of gems based on the population of the world being transferred to," ArenaNet explained.
"In time, we’ll also introduce free “guesting,” which will allow players to visit other worlds as guests as long as they have friends on those worlds. This feature will be free, but guest players will not be able to enter World vs. World, and the Power of the Mists bonuses from their home world will continue to apply to their characters."
Guild Wars 2 finally goes live for all on August 28 - hit the link for more on the MMO's worlds.
