First Guild Wars 2 beta weekend announced

Try out ArenaNet's MMO sequel later this month.

The first beta weekend for keenly-anticipated MMO sequel Guild Wars 2 takes place from 27th to 29th April.

Developer Arenanet broke the news via its Twitter feed earlier today, promising that it'll update soon with details of how to download the client and what exactly you'll be playing.

Those who haven't already got their name down for the trial can get involved by pre-purchasing the full game now.

Further beta events are planned before the game launches later this year, but no dates have yet been announced.
