The Steam Guild Wars 2 debut is finally here, making one of the best MMORPGs of all time accessible to even more players. Here’s everything you need to know about its launch.

Starting off 2022 with a bang, our Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons review claimed the expansion breathed new life into ArenaNet’s age-old saga. Allowing players to finally step foot onto the Jade-tinted shores of Cantha, an Eastern-inspired technological paradise, it also introduced fishing, strike missions, and, of course, that siege turtle mount.

Following the success of End of Dragons, ArenaNet announced that Guild Wars 2 was set to release on Steam in the near future, whilst also teasing expansion number four.

Turns out Guild Wars 2’s Steam debut is a little earlier than expected, as the iconic MMORPG will be gracing Valve’s gaming platform in just a few short weeks.

Guild Wars 2 Steam release date

The Steam Guild Wars 2 release date is August 23 2022 at 12pm PST / 3pm EST / 8pm BST / 9pm CEST, marking the first time the game has ever released on a third party website. Players will be able to wishlist it in advance.

You’ll also be able to pick up a new content bundle. which includes all of the game’s expansions, as well as the five Living World seasons that act as narrative bridges between each new chapter.

Buying the bundle will set you back $99.97 / £86.97, which on paper may look like a lot, but it does include a huge amount of content.
