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.
