Guild Wars 2 Pre-Purchases Exceed One Million

Guild Wars 2 releases today, but thanks to the perks that come with pre-purchasing the game, ArenaNet's MMO has already surpassed one million sales. Those that shelled out the cash early were able to get in on the action this weekend before the official launch, and the data collected over that time yields impressive results.

According to publisher NCsoft, the number of simultaneous Guild Wars 2 players surpassed 400,000. Considering the fact that the game hadn't technically even launched yet, that is one incredibly promising number.

GameRevolution's PC buff Jonathan Leack is currently providing an in-depth look at the game as he explores the MMO for himself. Be sure to head over to the latest installment in his review log to read up on his thoughts. Daniel is also going through the game. If you want to join our GR guild, here are the details.
