Guild Wars 2 kicks off 24-hour Stronhold PvP beta on Tuesday

One of the major additions to Guild Wars 2's upcoming Heart of Thorns expansion is the Stronghold PvP. The new competitive mode introduces elements of MOBA games into a Guild Wars 2 setting, with teams of five heroes looking to take down the opposing king. There's a little more to it than that, which players can see for themselves when the next Stronghold public beta takes place this coming Tuesday.

Guild Wars 2 players will be able to participate in Stronghold matches on June 2 at 12PM PDT, with the public beta running for 24 hours. There are no embargo restrictions in place, so live streamers can broadcast or otherwise capture as much footage as they desire. It also means that those who cannot make the beta will at least be able to watch the action on the Twitch channel of their choice.

Shacknews had a chance to check out an early incarnation of Stronghold a couple of months ago. You can check out those impressions here. We've also included a Stronghold match from the first Stronghold beta for your viewing pleasure below.
