Guild Wars 2 : The State of the Economy

The City of Steam team has announced that the game will be released in North America and ‘emerging markets’ in Q1 2013. CoS will be available to players in the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey and will be fully localized in both Arabic and Turkish.
City of Steam is set in the rich world of Nexus, a once great civilization where mechanical steam-work blurs with magic. Hundreds of quests lead players through ancient ruins searching for archaic spoils, while the players try to find a place for themselves and their families in their new home.

With regard to the server consolidation issue: Players whose characters have been moved to a new high-density server may also have to consider renaming their characters after the move:

As a result, you may find that some of your characters are now located on a different server. If your characters have been moved, you can find their new location on the server selection screen by clicking on the “Characters” column. Please be aware that no characters have been deleted as part of this process – all of your characters are still available to you and are ready to play!

However, you may find a red exclamation point next to your character’s name on the character selection screen. This means that due to the consolidation, you will have to rename that character. Rest assured that we took a variety of factors into account when determining which characters needed to be renamed. For more information, please visit or Server Consolidation FAQ.
