    Interesting GW2 News

    I was browsing on their forums & found an interesting newsletter posting the summer convention plans.

    The last convention is in August with PAX Prime, feels like beta may start in Q3 with a possible Q4 release after all!

    That does sound like good news!! Also for all of you who play Guild Wars, NCsoft has put in a demo for the Commando profession! It's really cool and I urge everyone who has a GW account to demo the class!

    I can see them annoucing a release date there most likely.

    Hopefully it will be a release date and not "we're giving you beta now"

    Even so, ArenaNet believes a beta is more of a game demo than a testing device anymore, so it should only last 2 months max.

    Even if the game was perfect they would release a beta for publicity and stress testing

    I seriously cannot WAIT for this game to come out. Going to save up this summer for a new power supply/graphics card/etc so I can play it on the higher settings when it comes out. So burnt out on WoW right now....
    We are WARRIORS man! If we can't make it bleed, we will sure as hell dent the f%^ck out of it!

    buying a new pc just for gw2 and skyrim, I expect a big GW2 reveal at pax prime, hopefully beta release date or final release date. Just hope we don't have to wait ages for more info as we had to last year

    Guild Wars is just going to be another WoW Clone...

    Except with state of the art genetic enhancements enabling it to transcend our meager existence and bless us from the heavens!

    I'm pretty excited.

    from what I've seen on the videos and heard from the interviews I wouldn't go as far as to say clone. Rift is a wow clone. GW2 will be so much more.

    Hopefully they'll have an open beta Q3/4 of this year with a release Q1/2 next year.

    That... would be awful. The game is already so near completion.

    yeah that's what i've been reading and hearing. But since i'm in australia i can't really go to any game conventions to check it out. so beta, release any time within the next 12 months is good enough for me.
