. The team are now ready to "aggressively ramp up the size of our beta test events" from March onwards ahead of a full release later this year.

Access to the Guild Wars 2 beta will be an extremely hot ticket for players looking for a fresh take on the MMO. We'll have to wait and see just how different Guild Wars 2 really is, but who wouldn't want to play as a

and wander around some of
GW2's extraordinary areas
. Roll on March! Are you excited about Guild Wars 2?
