Feb. Beta Weekend Event Pushed

Posted by Craig McGregor on Jan 26, 2005  | Comments

Feb. Beta Weekend Event Pushed - Guild Wars - MMORPG.com

We have just received word from ArenaNet that they will be pushing back the scheduled Beta Weekend Event for February.  Originally planned for the weekend of 2/4/05 - it will now be on 2/18/05 starting at 12:01AM PST.

The reason they are doing this is to add something totally fresh to the event.  They will be unveiling the new region of "Tyria".  So what's cool about this new area?  You get to see Ascalon as it existed before it was decimated by the Charr. You get to learn more about the backgrounds of characters who will play important roles in the storyline. And the region is very free-form, with a lot to explore and a large number of quests in which to participate. In this region, the player has the option to race forward quickly to get to the main story, or to stay and linger, making friends with villagers and discovering lots of hidden content. We're excited about this new region and can't wait for everyone to see it!

NOTE: This will not have any effect on the drawing date of our latest Guild Wars contest.  We will still draw the round 1 winners on Feb 1, 2005 @ 9PMEST.

In related news, due to the popularity of the official Guild Wars Emblem Contest - they will be extending the closing date of this contest to Feb 17, 2005.  The winners will now be announced by March 4, 2005.
