Guild Wars 2 Closed Beta Friday

A comment on reddit by ArenaNet in the I Am A chat mentioned earlier reveals plans to begin closed beta testing of Guild Wars 2 on Friday: "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. Based on the feedback we get from our current Closed Beta Testing, we will determine the next phases of our beta program in which we will open beta access to more people." Also, there's this follow up post indicating they are not offering any hints on the selection process for the beta for the MMORPG sequel. Thanks Guild Wars 2 Slovenija.

Each zone is split into four large regions as well FYI. If you google 'tyria interactive maps' you can get a look at some of the maps we know about so far. They are good sized, some seem rather huge.

And this 'closed beta' will consist of hand picked people. As to a release date, I expect either around June, or in the fall. I doubt they'd release in the winter as they'd be competing with the WoW expansion, and as shit as it looks it'll still suck up all the game sales for all three months of the final quarter.

Edit: Just wanted to add that the new Mesmer. The use of clones and phantoms, the shattering mechanic, and the wide variety of weapons (typical of all the classes really) means it's gonna be really interesting in PvP.
