ArenaNet has announced the first public Guild Wars 2 beta weekend will occur next weekend on April 27. The fun will end though on April 29. More testing weekends will be announced at a later date, so if you miss out on this one, you will have another opportunity to participate in the future. To get a beta key, you can pre-purchase the game to get instant access or if you have signed up for it previously, check your mail boxes. Beta sign-ups are currently closed. More details on the first beta weekend will be announced via a blog update soon.
