ArenaNet restores honor to the Guild Wars legacy. The Guild Wars Bonus Mission Pack will no longer be a credit card exclusive. Starting Monday, January 28, 2008, players will be able to purchase the BMP for only $9.99 / €8.99 / £5.99 – through the PlayNC store, the Guild Wars Online Store or through participating retail stores. This is a huge victory for Photics.com, as this site petitioned for such a change.
Guild Wars started out as an alternative to the credit card based MMORPGs. Offering the Guild Wars Bonus Mission Pack exclusively through the online store was a disappointment for many players. In response to that decision, Photics.com started a petition. It was suggested that ArenaNet offer an alternative method for Players to acquire the BMP. The petition caught the attention of ArenaNet. Ultimately, ArenaNet listened to the community.
Here’s the official word…
The Guild Wars Bonus Mission Pack will go on sale for the first time at the end of this month! Starting on January 28, Guild Wars fans who did not obtain the Bonus Mission Pack during our recent promotion will be able to purchase it from the Guild Wars Online Store, the PlayNC Store, and a variety of retail partners located throughout North America and Europe.
