The PC is seeing some big hitters arrive this year but arguably Guild Wars 2 is the one gamers are looking forward to the most. If you’ve been an early bird with getting a pre-order in then you will be granted access to a beta weekend starting Friday 8th June.
The event will continue until the following Monday and ArenaNet have confirmed that characters created in the first beta will be accessable, so you can pick up from where you left off the first time around.
Lead producer Chris Whiteside explained why beta testing has become such an important part of the development process for Guild Wars 2:
“What is the one thing we most look forward to in our second Beta Weekend Event? In a nutshell, it’s getting the chance to play with you all: sharing a world we’ve built together, discovering what’s great and what could be better, and defining a ground-breaking world that we can all enjoy for many years to come. That’s what these beta events mean to us.”
