Guild Wars 2 begins testing a streaming client


Getting in to play Guild Wars 2 will happen faster than ever before, thanks to a new streaming client that is coming to the servers in the next update.

A dev diary posted today says that this beta version of the client will facilitate patch downloads for all players by taking on the brunt of patch retrieval after a user has logged in to the game. Players will be able to enter the game once the progress bar hits a marker on the download while the downloader continues to work in the background. The client will also help new players to get into the game quickly by prioritizing the download of character creation and the starter areas.

This new streaming client will initially be limited to NA and EU servers, with China coming “at a later date.”
