Guild Wars 2 Collector's Edition unboxing

Guild Wars 2's servers go live next Tuesday for the masses (or on Saturday, if you've pre-ordered), giving gamers a new virtual world to run around and kill stuff in. We'll be covering the game extensively in the weeks following the launch with review journals, videos, opinions, and all of that fun stuff, but before we can talk about the game, we need to open the box! The Collector's Edition just arrived in our offices, so we immediately ripped it open in front of a camera, pouring its innards out onto the internet for all to see.

Once we'd rifled through the box and plucked out the game--which we need to write the review--we decided we might as well give the other cool stuff away! Stay tuned to GamesRadar's podcast, RadioRadar, for more information on that.

In the meantime, are you planning on picking the game up? Let us know in the comments below!
