Having judiciously opened
the doors for all and sundry to request Guild Wars 2 public beta registrations earlier this year, publisher NCsoft has announced a
date for the game's first Beta Weekend Event. The trial will take
place from April 27 to 29, with the beta client currently being
prepped for download. Keep an eye on the game's Twitter feed for
further info – but if you're in on the event, either through
pre-order or public registration, we're sure you'll be watching your
email inbox like a hawk anyway.
You can still guarantee your place in the Guild Wars 2 beta with a pre-order, though public
registrations have closed. If you'd prefer someone else do all the
playing and testing alike, our Guild Wars 2 closed beta preview will
do the heavy lifting (together with the rather more common light
mouse-clicking) for you.
