NCsoft has announced that its revolutionary MMORPG Guild Wars 2 will support Mac.

From today, Guild Wars 2 will be available for Mac in a beta version to anyone who purchases the game. The Mac beta version of Guild Wars 2 is still being optimised and, unlike other betas, is connected to the live servers allowing everyone to play together on both Mac and Windows based computers.

Users will be able to access the Mac beta client through the Guild Wars 2 account management website after activating their game code.

To deliver this support, ArenaNet is partnering with TransGaming whose revolutionary Cider technology dynamically translates between operating environments. This approach means that future updates to the game will also be available for Windows and Mac simultaneously.

For more information on the game and to purchase Guild Wars 2, visit www.guildwars2.com.
