We have served a fair share of negative news about Guild Wars 2, so we are always eager to mention something good about the game (which by most accounts is a pretty awesome game experience – bannings and hacking schemes aside) when it happens. The good news is that a beta of the popular online RPG is coming to Mac OS X today. The Guild Wars 2 beta will be connected to the game's main live servers, which will allow Mac and Windows computers to play together, according to publisher NCSoft. Also the Mac Beta is free to anyone who bought the PC version of the game. To use it, players will have to activate their game code and use the Guild Wars 2 account management site to gain access to the beta client.
The beta was made possible through ArenaNet's partnership with TransGaming, a company known for its great work on porting PC games to the Mac.
Anyone who purchases Guild Wars 2 today and going forward will be able to play it on both PC and Mac and the game will be a universal purchase even after the Mac beta closes so players only need to buy the game once to use it on either platform. Good deal.
