Guild Wars 2 throws special Revenant weekend test

    
26

The official beta for Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns has yet to begin, but ArenaNet isn’t above throwing a special test into the mix to tide its fans over (and accumulate more feedback, of course).

This weekend the studio will be hosting a test for the brand-new Revenant class from Friday, July 10th, through Monday, July 13th. Anyone who has pre-purchased the expansion can roll up the new class and try his or her hand at PvE and PvP with the character. In addition, ArenaNet will be rolling out its PvP Stronghold mode during this test for more fun.

The studio listed several other features that will be tested this weekend (staff weapons! Verati legends! Mist champions!) and promised that full beta weekend events will commence shortly.

jackinthegreen dragonwhimsy Siphaed Vexies you don’t have to pay for the basegame again. the price of the xpac would still be 50$, if they wouldn’t give you the basegame. the basegame is FREE.
and with every new xpac, that will also cost 50$, the basegame and the previous xpac will be FREE again.

” Anyway, I do think most of you would agree with me on this.  ANet never planned an expansion for GW2, their hope was the living story updates would be enough for players.”

I would agree with this…

ANet’s word-choice in previous press announcements lead me to believe that they wanted the Living Story to be their end all and be all. But, they tried to avoid painting themselves into a corner of fully denying an expansion (just in-case they ever needed one).

dragonwhimsy Siphaed jackinthegreen Vexies The free character slot should have been included anyway to everyone because in a game with limited character slots you would expect theme to do so .Also its not free its included in the price of the expansion . 

The other way to look at it also is that if you are a veteran player is your having to pay for the base game again . 

I sometimes wonder if many of my fellow mmo gamers have any common sense what so ever when I see a post like that .

Siphaed jackinthegreen Vexies  I was kind of expecting someone to bring that up . 

I doubt when the GW1 expansions were coming out at a similar price to all the expansions of other games of the time that you were arguing they should have been 14.99 higher than say for example WoWs burning crusade expansion because GW1 had no subscription fee and WoW had a subscription . 

That my friend is the fatal flaw in the logic of that line of argument .

Siphaed jackinthegreen Vexies Plus with HoT’s, if you are a veteran player they are giving you a free character slot, and if you’re not a veteran player you’re getting the base game for free.

The only reason that I haven’t pre-purchased HOT is because I do not pre-purchase anything, ever.

SoMuchMass Nreff I was needing to have a well dug on the back 40. Could you bring your magic stick to Texas & help me find the right spot for the well. ;)

Nreff SoMuchMass That is actually what I do for a living, so good call on that.  Anyway, I do think most of you would agree with me on this.  ANet never planned an expansion for GW2, their hope was the living story updates would be enough for players.  Then they would later go on and sell those living story updates for revenue.
But they later realized it was not enough to keep players around and they would need a robust content patch like how other MMOs usually release.  And the call from players grew louder.  So in haste they started working on an expansion.  And since they haven’t been working on it for a long time or never had plans for it, it seems very week content wise.
For your sake I hope you get your money’s worth.  But I do think it is going to be extremely content weak, and unfinished at release.  WIth the excuse give of, “wait for future updates”.
