Guild Wars 2 on the Social Media Front – ArenaNet Blog

We’re days away from the first Guild Wars 2 Beta Weekend Event, and it’s no exaggeration to say that we’re as eager as all of you for the event to begin. While the developers are busy preparing the game, we here on the community team are keeping busy by keeping all of you, our Guild Wars family, informed, with help from a few popular social media outlets.

Hundreds of thousands of Guild Wars 2 fans have become followers on Facebook, and we’ve worked hard to make our fan page a reflection of the community we want in Guild Wars 2: a place where newcomers can learn the basics from longtime fans, where everyone can share their excitement over Guild Wars 2, and where we can share news, fansite projects, art, and more.

With that in mind, we introduced our milestone goals for our Facebook page last week and have decided to share a little something extra as we approach the half-million mark. With each 10,000 new followers on the way to 500,000, we’ll release a never-before-seen piece of Guild Wars 2 art by some of our most-talented artists. These will be high-resolution images, suitable for use as desktop wallpapers!

Upon reaching 460,000 fans, we released concept art of Eir Stegalkin making an intimidating underwater discovery. We’re now well on our way to 470,000, and something a little more high-tech will be unveiled next.

Facebook isn’t the only thing keeping us busy. Guild Wars 2 has some of the most talented and creative fans out there, and we wanted a way to show off some of our favorite fan projects. We’ve joined Pinterest, and you’ll find boards showing off the best of the best in fan cosplay and fan art and projects, along with concept art from our own artists.

In preparation for the Beta Weekend Event, you’ll also find screenshot boards for the norn, human, and charr areas. As you’re adventuring in Tyria this weekend, take time to snap a few screenshots. If you upload them, be sure to give us the link on Facebook or Twitter, and we’ll pin some of our favorites to share with everyone.

We’re excited to have Pinterest as a way to share the creativity of our fans and artists with our entire community, and we hope you’ll enjoy it as well.

Finally, our Guild Wars 2 Twitter feed has been invaluable for providing rapid-fire answers, information, and news links to our fans. We answer as many questions as we’re able to, and we truly enjoy the quick one-on-one communication with our community members.

We’ll see you in-game during the Beta Weekend Event! But until then, there’s plenty of Guild Wars 2 talk to be had outside the game—so come on and join the discussion!

The Beta Weekend Event is Coming! GW 2 !

Guild Wars 2 - Blog Header

We’re counting the days until the first public Guild Wars 2 Beta Weekend Event, which begins on Friday, April 27, at noon PDT (GMT-7) and ends on Sunday, April 29, at 11:59 p.m. PDT (GMT-7). Hundreds of thousands of players from around the world will get their first taste of Guild Wars 2—and rest assured, we’ll be playing alongside them!

There are a couple important things you need to know about this Beta Weekend Event:

  • The only way to absolutely guarantee your access to this or any future Beta Weekend Events is to pre-purchase any edition of Guild Wars 2.
  • Customers who have pre-purchased the game will receive an e-mail next week with instructions on how to download the client and participate in the Beta.
  • This is a public event, which means that you’re not bound by a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA). So go ahead, feel free to take screenshots, shoot video, blog, tweet, write, or compose a rock opera to share your Guild Wars 2 experience with the world.

Let’s take a look at all the cool stuff you’ll be doing during the Beta Weekend Event.

Choices, Choices – You’ll create your own personalized charr, human, or norn character and pick from our eight powerful professions. Your choice of race is vital to your personal story, and it determines in which of the huge starting areas you begin as well. A noble human mesmer will have a radically different game experience than a charr engineer in the service of the Iron Legion. Fortunately, you can roll more than one character and sample each starting area for yourself!

Worlds Collide – If you want your PvP on an epic scale, look no further than World vs. World, where three teams comprising hundreds of players wage open war across four vast maps. You’ll lay siege to castles, raid supply camps, build devastating weaponry, ambush your foes, and leap into truly massive PvP battles—all for the glory of the server. We’re warning you: WvW is so addictive that you may spend the entire Beta Weekend Event there!

PvP For You and Me – After you’ve gotten your feet wet, put your newfound skills to the test in Guild Wars 2 PvP, where small teams battle for points on a variety of challenging, compact maps. We adjust the level of PvP combatants so that all players are on equal footing. If you’ve got a competitive streak or you like playing first-person shooters online, you owe it to yourself to try out Guild Wars 2 PvP!

I Love L.A. – For the first time ever, we’re opening the metropolis of Lion’s Arch to beta players. Wander the streets of this cosmopolitan trade hub, chat with traders and travelers from every corner of Tyria, hop through one of the many asura gates to points beyond, or discover the famed diving platform at Diverse Ledges. Lion’s Arch is a city like no other!

As you can see, there’s a ton of stuff to do in the upcoming Beta Weekend Event on April 27-29. It’s honestly way more content than one person can experience in 60 hours of playing—and we haven’t even included the asura and sylvari in this beta! Fortunately, this will not be the last Beta Weekend Event before launch—stay tuned for more news regarding the next event.

We’ll see you in-game!
