Guild Wars 2 beta weekend event date, details

Existing beta characters ready and waiting.

The second Guild Wars 2 beta weekend event begins at 8pm UK time on Friday 8th June, developer ArenaNet has announced.

Servers will stay open until 7.59am UK time on Monday morning.

Players who took part in the first Guild Wars 2 beta weekend will reunite with their existing characters. Warriors over level 35 can test out the Ascalonian Catacombs dungeon.

The latest beta features a number of gameplay improvements, implemented after fan feedback.

"We have listened intently to all of your feedback from our first Beta Weekend Event, and we've made great strides toward resolving many of the issues you've helped us identify," producer Chris Whiteside wrote on the official ArenaNet blog.

"These include party movement into overflow servers, chat functionality, key bindings, server stability, performance, and many more that we will detail in the near future."

ArenaNet celebrates as 1 million sign up for Guild Wars 2 beta.
