Guild Wars 2 is literally dropping its expansion beta on you


I just wanted an excuse to show off my hot Norn guy

Want in on the beta for the Guild Wars 2 expansion, Heart of Thorns? Well now you can go and try tofarm your way in (this is an MMO after all, gotta have that farming), as access to the next PvE closed event will be given through item drops.

If you venture out to the Dry Top and the Silverwastes, not only will you probably find them disgustingly crowded, but enemies might drop portals which grant you access. They’re untradeable, so every poor sod who wants in will have to go there and find one themselves. Once you’ve picked it up you’ll be granted access even if you then go and lose it.

There’s no confirmed date for the beta yet, but once you’ve got the item as long as you’re also subscribed to their newsletter you will be contacted about it.
