Are you unable to contain your excitement for Heart of Thorns much longer? Do you need a taste of the expansion right now? Because you can have it… soon. A taste, anyway. On April 14th, Guild Wars 2 players will get a taste of the expansion with a public beta for Stronghold PvP. Everyone will be able to log in and queue up for the new PvP mode, no hoop-jumping necessary.
During the event, the Stronghold format will be the only map available for unranked Arena, although other maps will still be there for players invested in working up the ranks. Want to jump in but don’t currently own a copy of the game? It’s going on sale over the weekend for $9.99 for the base edition or $14.99 for the deluxe edition.
