NCSoft has revealed details of its pre-order offers for the Limited Collector's Edition, Digital Edition and Digitial Deluxe Edition of its highly-anticipated Guild Wars 2 massively multiplayer online role-playing game.

 
Anyone who pre-orders will get a guaranteed entry into all beta weekend events, a three-day headstart when the game launches, and a Hero's Band in-game item, which offers +2 to a variety of stats.
 
The Digital Edition will feature just the core game and will thus be considerably cheaper than other offerings.
 
The Digital Deluxe Edition will feature the game and a number of bonus in-game items, such as the Summon Mistfire Wolf Elite Skill, Rytlock Miniature, Golem Banker, Chalice of Glory (which gives a one-time boost to Glory for PvP gear), and a Tome of Influence (giving a one-time boost to influence for guild features).

The Limited Collector's Edition includes all of the above and some real-life items, such as a 10-inch statue of Rytlock, a 112-page “making of” book, a custom art frame, an art portfolio with five prints, and a soundtrack CD.
 
All of this does not come cheap though, as the current price tag is £129.99 ($205). Prices for the digital versions were not revealed, but they should be considerably cheaper, given there won't be any physical product to ship. Users also need to take into consideration the lack of subscription fees compared to other MMOs.
 
Players can begin pre-ordering the game on 10 April.
