Guild Wars 2 Mac client coming, beta released

Guild Wars 2 is no longer just for PC players, as ArenaNet today released a beta client for the game which runs on Mac OS X. The company said the MMORPG client connects to the same servers as its Windows counterpart, and it plans to offer all future updates simultaneously for both platforms.

ArenaNet stipulated that the game requires OS X 10.7.X or later to run, and that it performs best on MacBook Pros and iMacs dating from mid-2010 on. The Bellevue, Washington-based company also warned that performance and specifications are not finalized as the client is still in active development based on user feedback.

Both the PC and Mac clients are available to anyone who purchases Guild Wars 2.

    Is there a trial or something? I have a MacBook from mid 2009 and I'd like to see if the game would run on it.

    Neat. Always glad to see Developers trying to get mac users into the games. Macs aren't the best for gaming, but I understand those who can't afford both a PC for gaming and a Mac for work (Design and all that jazz).

    Pretty much me exactly. I'm a Graphic Designer, and even though I don't HAVE to use a Mac, it's pretty much industry standard. I always really appreciate it when developers make a version that I can play. I'll totally look into this once I get my fill of Borderlands 2.
