Today we’re announcing the opening of pre-orders for the GuildMag Annual 2018. As in previous years, we’ve partnered with content creators from across the Guild Wars 2 community to produce a special, limited edition, printed magazine for our readers to enjoy. Our content partners include MightyTeapot, Chronicles of Tyria, and Kora (AKA GuildLores), and we’ll be announcing additional partners in the coming weeks.
For 2018, the GuildMag Annual celebrates the theme Tyria in Flux, an exploration of volatile magic and the Living World. Inside its 100 pages you’ll find a variety of articles covering lore, fiction, art, editorials and a few special surprises. Our partners, and the entire GuildMag team, are working hard to ensure that this year’s Annual delivers the quality you’ve come to know and expect from us. Plus, pre-ordered magazines will be shipped in early December 2018 via a priority service for delivery before December 25th wherever possible (though we cannot guarantee this for all destinations). This year, we’ve also more than doubled each copy’s donation to charity, now $5.00 per magazine sold (at minimum), and are offering the option to donate to receive a pre-release digital edition as well!
We’ve chosen to support the work of World Child Cancer this year, a charity dedicated to training medical staff in underserved countries and helping children in these countries receive the care and treatment they deserve to beat their illnesses. This is a cause dear to our hearts because of the experience one of own team members has had witnessing her own child’s brave battle with cancer. You can read her more about our decision to support World Child Cancer from Fearan herself here.
More information about the GuildMag Annual 2018, including how to pre-order your copy, can be found at www.guildmag.com/annual. Make sure you don’t delay; pre-orders will close on December 4th! And once they’re closed, we’ll never be printing this issue again!
