Check out some sweet snippets of footage from battles of varying scale in Guild Wars 2.

ArenaNet issued a thank you video to those who signed up for the upcoming beta, but you can watch it too – simply visit the Facebook page and Like Guild Wars 2.

The footage therein shows glimpses of a huge battle; two smaller groups facing off; magic effects filling the air with haze; and a castle under siege, with players fighting across the battlements and siege engines firing.

Guild Wars 2 opened beta sign ups for 48 hours and attracted over 1 million sign ups at a rate of 4,000 per second.

The next beta event is expected this month, with the MMORPG due some time this year.
