Guild Wars 2 Gets Release Date

Having thoroughly vanquished the very idea of my beard - casting it into the garbage that which lies beyond this world, a mix of spite and triumph in my heart - I have given up on the MMO. Nonetheless, many of my beard-friendly peers sing its praises: forever pursuing the next quest, looting, and grinding, like some kind of manic Captain Ahab chasing their respective White Whales. For those in said camp, the silhouette of Guild Wars 2 lies just beyond the port bow, obscured by mist, and tempting man's inherent desire to conquer.

Thankfully, said conquest is at hand, as the game has been given a release date of August 28th. From Arenanet:

This is an incredibly momentous day for the studio and for me personally. This journey began in 2007 when we first announced that we were beginning work on Guild Wars 2 and that you wouldn't be hearing from us for a while. Then in 2010 we unveiled our manifesto for Guild Wars 2: a living breathing online world that challenges convention, that's designed for fun instead of grind, and that brings social interaction to a new level in an online world. [...] Now that we're just two months away from launch, we'll spend our remaining time optimizing, polishing, and balancing the game, to ensure that we provide you with the best launch-day experience we possibly can.

For those that pre-purchased a copy of the game, Arenanet's Mike O'Brien has announced that the final beta weekend will take place July 20-22nd.

So what do you think, gamers? Does the impending release positively tickle your fancy, or do you find yourself in the frosty bosom of Dame Indifference? Sound off in the comments section below!

I will definitely be in Guild Wars 2. I am eagerly looking forward to it. If anyone wants to look me up Blazing Beau will one of avatars. Friend me. I will be a launch officer for my Guild [AoL] Army of Lightness. It is not a "gay" guild, but it is a very open minded and friendly group. If you play GW2, please friend me and message me. We will be hitting the ground running to establish our presence in GW2 pre-launch weekend. I'll be there all weekend.
