ArenaNet has said the closed beta for Guild Wars 2 will start today. Speaking on a Reddit thread, system designer Jon Peter said there was no way in for the public, with testers already handpicked by ArenaNet. "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," he said.
The NCsoft MMO is expected to launch next year. Thanks, IGN.
