    There were sign ups that only lasted 48 hours at the end of February but they only used those applications for 1 beta weekend test and 1 stress test so far.

    If you want guaranteed beta access then you have to pre-purchase the game. You can also get a refund if you decide you don't like the game after you play the beta.

    You can take your chance and try to win a beta key from the various fan sites that receive keys to give away. This is the first beta key give away I've seen for the next beta event coming up http://www.curse.com/betas/guild-wars-2

    =(

    sadly, its mostly for those who pre-ordered the game, doing so grants you a guaranteed spot on the beta. I think there were sign ups but those were a long time ago, back on the closed beta, so I don't think there's a way to get in now. Ya know, other than pre-ordering the game.

    so, if I pre-purchase game now, I'm instantly getting into GW2 beta and can try game out straight away or I have to wait for these test weekends?

    hey grandpab, I just went to that link you posted, and it says that keys will be given to general members on july 10th.

    Thing is, where do I sign up for that? I saw this message at the upper part of the screen:

    Sorry!
    You must be from one of the following countries to enter:
    Canada
    United States of America
    =( does that mean I can't enter for one? or does it means sign-ups are only on the 10th?

    You have to wait for the next weekend they're having a beta event, which is July 20-22. This is also the last beta event they'll be having before the game is released on August 28th.

    Pre-purchasing also gets you into the 3 day headstart too though, which would allow you to start playing the released game on August 25th.

    If you pre-purchase now, as I understand, you get a guaranteed spot on the next (and last) beta weekend, which is on the 20th I believe. And to the best of my knowledge (could be wrong) there is no ongoing regular beta at the moment. Just one last weekend test before the launch on august.

    Looks like it, but there will be other websites giving away keys as we get closer to the beta weekend.

    This is awkward, I do want to test it out, but since these weekends only are on specific dates, it's kinda sad that I can't level it up to test it out for couple hours atleast.


    Was wondering between standart and digital deluxe CE, what are these items offered, can't find source where to read about these items they give when you pre-purchase digital deluxe CE

    DAMMIT! >_>

    I need a reasonably long time to download the client. Is there a way for me to download the beta client even without an invite? internet is really slow on my country and a 16Gb client would take no less than a full week (if not more) to fully download. I don't know how large the beta client is for GW2, but I'm guessing it must be at least 12Gb large or more. I need time to get it before the weekend. If I get a beta key 2 days before the weekend I'll be able to test squat T_T

    Because GW2 beta isn't some trial/advertisement run like Tera, where people gave out keys like candy, its actually a beta. Shocker.

    Most of the items from the digital deluxe version are 1 time uses. One item gives you extra influence which helps your guild buy benefits, another gives you glory which is the pvp currency, and the third item is a traveling bank that you can use anywhere for 5 days. The only 2 permanent items are the miniature pet Rhytlock, and the elite skill wolves.

    If you're not sure if it's worth it you can buy the standard edition and then upgrade your account to the digital deluxe edition after the game is released.

    can't decide, is it worth those extra items and pets for 15 gbp extra or not?

    also, is it possible to download GW2 beta without invite to beta or if I pre-purchase game, can I download beta game (without access to login tho)?

    also was wondering about pre-downloading game, will orginal game use parts of GW2 beta or it's fresh download required?

    Sorry for curiousity

    Grandpa linked the cloud file where you can Download gw2, you just can't log in. Also were 100% sure the beta client will be the real client come launch, with a patch update for it, if not the main forum website will have a link for you.

    A couple of your questions are answered in my post above yours. For the last question, it will use the same client and you will just have to patch the rest of the missing files before the game released. Right now GW2 is about 14-15gb, but the released version will be about 25gb.

    Since I got holiday on that weekend , I might grab a preorder since I'm waiting for this game for so long, but worried about the game itself, since I had bad experience before with other games (SWTOR, geez, that game is horrible)


    p.s. thanks grandpab for help, ArenaNet should award you for helping me decide

    It's a pre purchase so you are buying the game right then and there.

    buy to play, no sub. Optional cash shop aka the gem shop and its technically possible never to pay real money to use it.
