I like the looks of ARR and I think finally after years the company got its shit together, but I kind of want to have a before and after experience to see just how drastic the changes actually are so I'm interested in buying/playing the game - but going through any official websites I can't find any digital purchases available.

Anyone have any recomendations?

I don't think they are doing digital purchases until the "new" version comes out.

This is always an option:


hmmm, apparently, according to the website, they have shut off the ability to make new accounts until the new version launches.

^ What Sovrath said. The game is in lockdown for new accounts / subs as of this past weekend, since it'll be shutting down in preparation for the relaunch come November 11th.

Trust me you really do not want to play the game as is. You will like it much better after it relaunches.

The current state of the game isn't the best, and a lot of things are getting changed around once TRR comes out, I'd suggest you wait it out, they'll be starting a beta phase period hopefully near the end of this year as we aproach the (supposed) January release date.

So you can't re sub until it launches next month?  I was just going to re sub just to see how the game was going and I didn't know they were so close to launching 2.0.    IDK I haven't found any options to resub in the account manager but when I log in it  gives me the option to click play but it crashes the client.   Oh well If it does launch next month it will be worth the wait.
