I thought of this too.  They don't need to give free trials to try and prop up poor sales like TSW or Tera.  They'll have a steady influx of players for quite a while.

It took Guild Wars years before they made a free trial

Wow, that's kind of a shitty attitude to give someone who just asked a simple question.  OP, try not to pay attention to replies like these, they're just chomping at the bit, they know not what they do lol


I understand, in this day and culture it is prominent to hold hands and spoon feed kids looking for attention under the guise of "asking a simple question."

The truth is he knows, as everyone else does that the opportunity has been had.

The scary part is one day the world will be run by adults who were never spanked as kids and got trophies just for participating.

They already had a free trial option when Factions was released.

You have to put the effort in. Companies dont just send you beta invites.

I normally get beta codes for everything i want to try, because I actively look out for them, and jump on them as soon as the offers become available.

The only trial you could of had was BWE3, pretty much they gave out more than enough keys for people to play it and try it out. Too late as of now though.

Meh, it's $60. If I turn to my right I can look at 3 shelves of console and Pc games I never play.  They are just setting there laughing at me! I'm willing to bet that if you went out and purchased GW2, you would have more fun with that then any single player XBox 360 game for the same price. In fact, grab all your games that you never play and take them to Gamestop and trade them in. 

Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

even still you first needed someone to of bought the game  also not to mention this is a year after the original game was released.. so really who knows when GW2 will have a trial.... i'd say for people really interested spend awhile in youtube and see if it's something you might like.

It was/is well known that Amazon bucked the system and offered pre-orders as well as the fact that Anet was providing refunds on pre-purchases as well.

Curse that sig of yours!! 's What got me to pre-order ><

On topic: it's only $60 or so, Not the end of the world if OP drops the game after 10 hrs. There's shorter singleplayer games that cost just as much.

:P

and I agree I have spent $60 on so many games I only got maybe 10 hours or so of gameplay out of..  hell many $60 single player games you can beat in 10 hours.

It seriously looks like anet isnt even going to have another stress test for prepurchase buyers at this point and i would not expect a trial any time soon..

What i can tell you is that i have been burned buying junk games more times than i care to mention and in my experience with GW2 from the closed beta right on through every BWE i can tell you this game is the real deal and actually meets or exceeds anets own manifesto and anet has not overhyped the game so you can go to the official site and get unhyped facts or you can look at Aerowyns GW2 video compilation..

After looking over some of the youtube footage if you feel like you might like this game the chances are very good that you will..

In my honest opinion i have never made a more sound gaming investment..

I've become dependent upon spell check. My apologies for stupid grammatical errors.

I think the lack of a subscription lowers the barrier of entry enough that buying the box is the MMORPG equivalent of trying it before you buy it. I don't disagree with subscriptions, but every game with a subscription requires that commitment just to start playing.

I would expect that after awhile they'll have a trial version of the game..and if they don't, it means the game is selling well enough that they don't need one at all. That in itself would be a selling point.

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.

There are literally weeks of playermade footage of actual gameplay showcasing pretty much every aspect of the game. ArenNet have been very detailed about mechanics, game systems and their reasons to do things the way they did as well. I don't think we ever knew that much about a MMO before release.

If your affraid of a SWTOR deja vu then i can say dont be.
You can wait for a try before you buy option, but seriously iam the most sceptical gamer out there and after playing 1 beta i was sold, it sealed the deal after 10 minutes of playing GW2.

Check out youtube specialy the cons and pro's of GW2, if your then still not sure then dont buy it and wait for a trial.
