What are the regional designations for Guild Wars 2?

There will be 3 major regional designations for the release of Guild Wars 2:

  • Europe: Defined as Western Europe and Eastern Europe. Players in these regions connect to the European datacenter.
  • North America: Defined as Canada, Mexico, and the United States. Players in these regions connect to the North American datacenter.
  • Other: Players in countries not listed above will connect to the North American datacenter.

A more in-depth list of countries and their designations can be found below.

 

How do I register from my region?

For customers in the North American and European regions, upon registration our servers will perform a one-time check to ensure your serial code matches the region you are connecting from. Customers in North America must register the North American version of the game; customers in Europe must register the European version of the game; customers in other regions may register either version. When you purchase the game from buy.guildwars2.com, you automatically will receive the correct version of the game.

After successfully completing account registration, your account becomes a global account, and you can roam to any part of the world and still access the game.

 

Why do you designate regions for Guild Wars 2?

We designate regional versions of our game to support our local retail partners. But in addition, we use regional versions to connect you to your optimal data center and customer support team, and to ensure the correct language support for your version of the game.

 

If I purchase from buy.guildwars2.com, what serial code do I receive?

Customers who buy directly from buy.guildwars2.com automatically receive the correct serial code for their region.

 

I travel frequently. Will I be able to play Guild Wars 2?

Yes. The one-time verification system simply confirms that you have purchased the correct version of the game for your area of the world. Once that has been confirmed, you may play from any location you desire.

 

How does regional restriction affect my Guild Wars 2 home world?

The very first time you start the game you will be asked to select your home world. Although by default we display the worlds that are hosted in your regional data center, you are free to select a home world from either region at this time. So if you are a European player who prefers to play on the North American worlds, please feel free to do so.

 

Does my region affect my language options?

It’s easy to switch between any of our supported languages: English, French, German, and Spanish. When you install Guild Wars 2, the game client matches your operating system language. However, if you wish to play in a different language after installation, you can change languages in the Guild Wars 2 Launcher, and the corresponding audio language files will be downloaded and installed. And, of course, altering the language of in-game text is always available to you via the in-game Options menu.
