The Final Guild Wars 2 Beta Weekend Begins Today

MMO fans should be glad to hear that today marks the start of the third and final Guild Wars 2 beta weekend before the game's release on August 28th. Players who have pre-ordered Guild Wars 2 will have the opportunity to try the game and see if they're getting their money's worth.

The last Guild Wars 2 beta weekend, hosted in early June, was plagued with issues, with servers crashing due to the high amounts of player traffic. Hopefully, with the new hardware that ArenaNet was adding over the last month since the last event, this beta weekend won't end with server woes.

Plenty of new content is available for this beta weekend. The asura and sylvari will be playable races. New areas in the Maguuma Jungle have been unlocked along with the new Legacy of the Foefire PvP map.

The final beta weekend will be ending on July 22nd at 11:59 PDT. If you've been invited to play, it may be a good idea to take advantage of the limited time you have with the game before you're deprived of it for another month.
