iGames Holds Guild Wars Launch Event

iGames, the world?s leading game center organization, today announced a program of exclusive events to celebrate the April 28 retail launch of Guild Wars. The series of events that will take place over the next five weeks will begin with the official premier on Saturday, April 30 at participating iGames game centers in North America.

The one-day premier event will be followed by an all-night WANdemonium party May 7, and the Official iGames Guild Wars Showcase May 9-22, which allows players to sample the game at their leisure over a 14-day period. ArenaNet will offer hundreds of headsets as prizes donated by a third party technology company to player participants.

Guild Wars is a global RPG that allows players to connect anywhere and play with others at any time, without any subscription fee required. Players are immersed in a colorful, robust and detailed online world where they can choose to play for minutes or hours at a time. Additionally, success is determined by player skill, not by the time spent playing.

?Guild Wars appeals to all types of game players, so it?s great that they?ll have a chance to sample the game at iGames centers,? Jeff Strain, co-founder of ArenaNet said. ?The community iGames offers with its game centers is a perfect fit for the unique, global game world of Guild Wars.?

?Our customized program of events will appeal to fans of every stripe,? said Mark Nielsen, executive director of iGames. ?With the premier, the all-night WANdemonium! party and the Showcase, we?ve created a game environment that appeals to both hardcore players and casual enthusiasts. If the signup response we?ve received so far is any indication, Guild Wars is going to be one of the biggest global RPG games of the year.?
