Guild Wars 2 Beta Now Available To Mac Users
As a fast follow to breaking two million unit sales, ArenaNet is expanding its market with the announcement that effective September 18th a beta version of Guild Wars 2 for Mac OS X users will be available to all who purchase the game. Although it is still beta and will likely require optimization, once a user's account has been activated, those beta players will login to the live servers allowing them to play along side their Windows-using cohorts.
To ensure that future game updates are released for both the Mac and PC simultaneously, ArenaNet has nurtured a partnership with TransGaming to make use of their flagship technology Cider. Cider was developed to provide dynamic translation between Windows and Mac operating environments with a focus on gaming.
