Guild Wars 2 is now available to play on Mac OS X, NCsoft and ArenaNet have announced.

Currently in beta, but connected to live servers with PC players, the Mac version is still being optimised.

The Mac specific client is available from the Guild Wars 2 account management website.

ArenaNet is partnering with TransGaming whose Cider technology is able to dynamically translate between operating environments. This means future updates to Guild Wars 2 will be available for Windows and Mac simultaneously.
