spring update 2 for guild wars 2

ArenaNet has held multiple beta testing phases for the Guild Wars 2 Heart of Thorns expansion pack. They now holding yet another beta phase which is scheduled to kick off tomorrow i.e. May 26.

People who are signed up for the beta will get three two hour slots tomorrow during which they will be able to play the new expansion with either a revenant one of the eight professions. Each phase of testing will be separated with a two hour break as well.

Since this is a single day event, you should keep a close check on the timings shared by the developers of Guild Wars 2:

  • 11:30 a.m. Pacific Time (UTC-7) to 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time (UTC-7)
  • 3:30 p.m. Pacific Time (UTC-7) to 5:30 p.m. Pacific Time (UTC-7)
  • 7:30 p.m. Pacific Time (UTC-7) to 9:30 p.m. Pacific Time (UTC-7)

You must be wondering what exactly are they going to let you test in the game during this time. ArenaNet has also explained the extent of the testing:

The upcoming closed beta will help us test the stability of our new PvE outpost-event content structure. Participants will be able to use a revenant—or any of the existing eight professions—to play a small amount of expansion story content, followed by two beta versions of outposts and their corresponding adventures in part of the Verdant Brink map. An early, partially completed version of the day/night cycle meta-event experience from Verdant Brink will also be available.

People who are to be selected for the Guild Wars 2 Heart of Thorns beta are going to be random choices from among the people who have subscribed to their newsletter as well as those who “obtained a portal to the Heart of Maguuma during the special event in Dry Top and the Silverwastes.”
