The award-winning free-to-play MMO RPG, Guild Wars 2, is finally coming to Steam almost ten years after its initial launch. It was finally made official when an announcement came via the Guild Wars 2's official website.
The Steam release for the critically acclaimed MMO has been a long time coming and should especially excite new players who have been looking for an opportunity to dive into the ever-evolving fantastical world of Tyria.
Guild Wars 2 on steam will be free-to-play though players could also buy the Guild Wars 2 collection bundle. Here's everything you need to know about it.
Everything included in the Guild Wars 2 collection bundle
The Guild Wars 2 collection bundle contains all three expansions of the game.
- Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thrones
- Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire
- Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons
The collection also includes the game's five Living World seasons. All in all, it's quite a meaty package, containing everything from the game's first ten years.
Guild Wars 2 collection price and release date
The Guild Wars 2 collection bundle on Steam costs £86.97 (~$100). Given the sheer amount of content it offers, the price shouldn't come off as too surprising. The Guild Wars 2 collection bundle releases on 23rd August 2022. As of this writing, players can wishlist the game on Steam.
This collection will be exclusive to Steam for some time though developer ArenaNet has assured fans that it's working to bring the complete package to its web store and in-game store for existing players in the future. There is no release date as of now.
