Guild Wars 2 Heart of Thorns beta is on the way

    
47

Are you revved up for Guild Wars 2’s upcoming Heart of Thorns expansion? How about revved up enough to test it? If that sounds like fun to you, you’ll be pleased to know that the beta test will be kicking off “shortly” after this and next weekend’s PAX and Rezzed events. How will it work? First, there’s no NDA.

There will be no nondisclosure agreements for these beta tests. Those of you who are selected as testers will be free to talk about your experiences and to post streams and videos of the content you play. Please understand that these are early beta tests designed to stress core systems of an expansion that’s still in development. Because we’re stressing core systems, we’ll start with a very small pool of testers and then grow a little with each successful test.


And do you have a snowball’s chance in Mount Maelstrom of getting in?

We’ll draw our initial pool of testers from among active players and loyal customers who are also subscribed to the Guild Wars 2 newsletter. By opting in to receive email from us, you’re opting in to any potential beta invites. So if you want to be considered for beta test, please make sure we have your current email address and that you’re successfully receiving our newsletters.

Guild Wars 2 is 10 bucks this weekend in honor of PAX.

paragonlostinspace Kalamari Gold -> gems conversion works well too. If cash it tight, paying for cash shop items with in-game currency is possible, just difficult.

SoMuchMass  It’s you.  Existing GW2 players are very excited, non-players are interested.

BalsBigBrother I personally wouldn’t see it as a cynical perspective. I am all for ArenaNet being selective.

Omg, the no NDA makes me happy because that ALSO means they don’t partake in the bullshit takedown notices companies keep throwing on youtube content creators for no reason at all.

GleefulGrognard Loyheta They gave a (bad) reason? I figured they’d just ignore us. What did they say?

Loyheta I could have accepted there not being tengu, if only they hadn’t given such a terribly bad reason for them not being there in the interviews.

So would it be cynical of me to think that there will be a lot of twitch streamers and YouTube content creators being picked to take part in this beta ?

SoMuchMass I was starting to think you didn’t make it over in the transition away from joystiq. GW2 articles just wouldn’t be the same without your doom and gloom predictions that never come true. Never change SMM. :D
