ArenaNet has announced via twitter that the first public beta weekend event for Guild Wars 2 will start April 27, and end on April 29. More beta weekends will be announced in the future, so don’t worry if you can’t participated in this one.

To get access to this first beta, you can either pre-purchase the game and gain instant access, or if you signed up for the beta in the past, you should check your mail box in the next few days.

Unfortunately, beta sign-ups are already closed, so if you haven’t signed up in the past, you’ll have to wait for the next beta weekend to come along.

Some of our posts include links to online retail stores. We get a small cut if you buy something through one of our links. Don't worry, it doesn't cost you anything extra.
