Guild Wars 2 is literally giving away a car to promote roller beetle racing

And you get a car! And you get a car! And you get a car! Just kidding, only one of you gets a car. I’m talking about ArenaNet’s sweepstakes for a custom-skinned 2019 VW Beetle worth $30,000 US, which kicks off tomorrow in conjunction with the launch of roller beetle racing in Guild Wars 2.

“To participate, players simply need to opt-in to email communication at [official site] and enter one roller beetle race during the sweepstakes period, which ends on December 24. Each week, joining a race automatically enters the player into a drawing for great weekly prizes as well as the grand prize once the sweepstakes concludes. Weekly prizes include a complete Razer PC package, which contains a Razer BlackWidow Elite keyboard, Kraken Tournament Edition headset, Naga Trinity mouse and Goliathus Extended Chroma mouse mat; an Alienware Aurora PC and monitor; a vacation to San Diego featuring a sand dune buggy excursion; and a home theater entertainment system. Each weekly entry counts for the grand prize, allowing everyone to earn up to four entries for the final drawing.”


Worth noting is that roller beetle racing will be unlocked for everyone, even if you wouldn’t otherwise have access to this season of living world content; you can “rent” a beetle to play along and enter. Check out all the details and prize info on the official site.

Uh…why tho?

Why not just give out PoF keys? Wouldn’t that be better?

They want people to buy PoF keys immediately after getting a taste of roller beetles, not hold off buying in hopes that they win a key later.

And the new Beetle will be out of production in 2019, i’ll leave it at that because i want to rant forever about cars :-)

Nice move ArenaNet, i’m impressed.

I can imagine how good it’ll be to fix it in case it has a problem.

Spare parts will not be problem for next 10 to 15 years, since cars today share so much, this is just VW Golf, same platform and engines, just the outer shell is different.

After VW gamed the system by cheating on US emissions I wouldn’t drive one of their ugly cars. I’d sell it after I got that god awful paint off though. Better Call Maaco.

If you win the car you get the option of getting 20k$ istead of it via the rules
