Guild Wars 2 fanatics, the second beta weekend event has been announced! Earlier today, Chris Whiteside of Arena Net made a post on their official blog detailing when the event would be.
Beta Weekend Event 2 will begin on Friday, June 8th, at noon PDT (GMT-7) and will run until Sunday, June 10th, at 11:59 p.m. PDT (GMT-7).
If you know anyone who has been raving about this game, expect them to go M.I.A. once again next weekend. Also, there’s moar good news! Your existing characters have not been deleted, and if you have one that is level 35 or higher, you’ll finally be able to explore the Ascalonian Catacombs dungeon.
Many of the complaints raised in the first beta weekend event have apparently been addressed; these include party movement into overflow servers, chat functionality, key bindings, server stability, and performance to name a few. I’m glad to hear this, as I was unable to play with friends due to the overflow of players and overall server stability. Lag was also a huge issue for many, so it’s good to see performance has been addressed.
I never really did give my first impressions of the first beta event. I’ll try to have something up in the coming days leading up to the event; you might be surprised at what I think of the game. In the meantime, take a look at some video I recorded (with lame commentary) below.
One last word to all fans of the game: try not to die of anticipation. The second beta weekend event will be here sooner than you think
