ArenaNet has announced Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns Stronghold public beta will take place on April 14 at 12pm PT and will last for only 24 hours to all players in Western regions with a Guild Wars 2 account.
To prepare the incoming wave of public beta participants, ArenaNet will be hosting a “Ready Up” livestream on April 10 at 12pm PT. The stream will feature a special Stronghold boot camp that will help players become familiar with the new mode. The content won’t stop there as for as long as the public beta is going on, the Guild Wars 2 Twitch channel will feature non-stop coverage featuring ArenaNet developers and popular influencers getting a stab at Stronghold.
ArenaNet will also be holding a sale this weekend so new players can jump in on the public beta. Starting at 10am PT on April 10 and running through 11:59pm on April 13, Guild Wars 2 will be available for 75% off of its regular price, making it $9.99 through buy.guildwars2.com.
