Free updates are good for everyone.
Guild Wars 2 is a phenomenal game, you know that, I know that, heck, everyone knows that. In case you don’t, you can always check out our glowing review here.
People will be pleased to know that the game will contain consistent free content updates, according to AreaNet’s Colin Johanson.
This is what he had to say on the Guild Wars 2 forums:
“No need to buy them, Gw2 will feature consistent free content updates and in-game events going forward. Our goal is to make it so you get more from Gw2 for free than you get from a game you pay a subscription for.
“On top of a large amount of free bonus content, we will be expanding on offerings in the Black Lion Trading Company going forward, as well as be doing large-scale expansion content down the road. We’ll cover a lot of the details on the kind of support and plans we have in place over the next month or so on the GW 2 blog and with our press partners.
“We do appreciate that you’d like to buy lots of new content, but we’d prefer to give a lot of it to you for free, cause that’s what we think a responsible MMO company does!”
How cool is this? Developers like them should be rewarded for creating a solid game and supporting it with free content as well.
