Hello, i am sorry if this already covered but i couldn't find it on the guide here.

So my question is about installation DVDs. As far as i understood there won't be any DVDs for the preorders.

So i am wondering will there be DVDs in the final release at least? Is it worth waiting till then or i will just get the same empty box from the retail store? The DVDs are important for me cause my connection is really slow. And i don't mind waiting.

I am interested for EU specifically, but feel free to answer for US as well if you know so the threads becomes helpful to more people.

Thanks in advance.

    i don't think anyone but Anet knows if there will be install discs.  Digital download is pretty mainstream now.

    i do not think there will be install disk i had the for GW1 but evean if i use them all the data gets replaced any way.

    so even with disks after a year or more with the updates that come out it will still take a long time evean with the disks

    I belive it will come in DVD format too, since there are still a lot of people that buy from stores. Can't say 100% sure tho.

    If you pre purchase in store for gamestop you will get a box when its available aka release date. Only pre purchase doesn't come with a DVD mainly because there isn't one to give out atm, since the game is still being tested.

    there are 3 version of the game

    • Digital Edition no DVD

    • Digital Deluxe Edition no DVD

    • Collector's Edition not sure does not say there is one but also do0es not say there is not one

    from what i seen if you buy one of the digital ones you get a box with a code in it if you buy the CE you just gte a code.
    i do not know if there will be a box copy of the game other then the CE witch will not be on sale for every.
