This weekend Guild Wars 2 is only $10 and beta sign-ups start for Heart of Thorns.
ArenaNet is at PAX East this weekend showing off the first demo for Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns at booth #5116. If you are not at PAX East and are wanting to play Heart of Thorns, you may be in luck as ArenaNet has started sign-ups for the HoT beta! The PAX East weekend is also hosting the World Tournament Series Final on Saturday, starting at 10am Eastern. The Grand Finals round is estimated to start around 4pm Eastern.
The World Tournament Series finals will pit the top 2 teams from NA against the top team for EU and China to vie for a $50,000 prize pool. The official GW2 Twitch channel will host the finals on Saturday as well as various streamers and demo content all weekend. To celebrate the finals this weekend, PvP progress and magic find in PvP will be boosted throughout the weekend.
If you are interested in gaining access to the Heart of Thorns beta, head over and sign up for the Heart of Thorns newsletter. ArenaNet has said that they will start hosting small beta tests shortly after the PAX and Rezzed weekends and will be selecting the "initial pool of testers from among active players and loyal customers who are also subscribed to the Guild Wars 2 newsletter."
For those who don't have Guild Wars 2, this weekend is the perfect time to join as the game will be 75% off until 11:59pm on Sunday, March 8th. This is limited to the digital editions of the game purchased through buy.guildwars2.com. The default version of the game is $10 during the sale while the Digital Deluxe version is $15.
