Guild Wars 2: closed beta officially begins this Friday
After releasing information on the last class to be added in Guild Wars 2, the Mesmer, ArenaNet says the closed Beta will officially begin this Friday, Dec., 16 2011. The company has been very hush-hush on closed and open beta time frames, and still no official release has been set for the game. With the news of closed beta being announced, the game is nearing its release date.
Guild Wars 2 Guru’s IRC dev chat, held yesterday, said “We have a studio internal selection process for our Closed Beta that starts on Friday. There will be no public application form.” That said, Guild Wars 2 will be a ‘family and friends’ type beta testing phase. “We will officially enter Closed Beta Testing this Friday. It will be marked with an increase in our pool of testers. To clarify, this phase of testing is still under NDA and is not open to the public.”
