7 Million Players Strong, Heart of Thorns Launches - Guild Wars 2 -

Now live after months of hype and patience from fans, Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns officially launched at 301am ET / 1201am PT on October 23rd. Boasting over 7 million accounts, ArenaNet shares a new infographic as players flood the Maguuma Jungle.

Mike O'Brien released this statement via press release:

“This has been a memorable year for ArenaNet and our Guild Wars 2 player community,” said Mike O’Brien, co-founder and president of ArenaNet.  “We energised our fans in January with the announcement of Heart of Thorns as the first expansion to Guild Wars 2, and we’ve seen steady growth in our player base ever since.  Our community is widely recognised as one of the best and friendliest in MMOs – many of our veteran players organised in starter zones to welcome new players the weekend we made the core Guild Wars 2 game free.  We’re eager to see how our fast growing community continues to flourish, and we hope they’re eager to embrace where their Guild Wars 2 journey takes them next in Heart of Thorns.”
