Our friends over at ArenaNet and NCSoft were awesome enough to give us 500 beta codes to give away for the upcoming Guild Wars 2 beta weekend running from June 8-10. For those of you who haven’t already pre-purchased the game to secure access this is a great chance to dive into one of the beta weekends to check the game out.
We will be distributing the keys in conjunction with our parent site, TenTonHammer.com. While the giveaway won't technically start until tomorrow, we wanted to give our awesome community here at GW2Hub the info in advance to help you secure one of the keys.
Here is how the giveaway will work:
The giveaway page at Ten Ton Hammer can be found here: Guild Wars 2 Beta Key Giveaway. Please note that the page will not be accessible until the beginning of the giveaway time listed below!
The first batch of keys has been claimed, but don't forget that we'll have a second batch to give away at the same time tomorrow!
The keys for Saturday have all been claimed - we're looking forward to seeing you in the beta next weekend!
- We will be giving away two batches of keys (250 keys per batch) on a first come, first served basis.
- The first batch will become available at 12:00 PM (noon) Eastern time on Friday, June 1st, with the second batch available at 12:00 PM (noon) Eastern time on Saturday, June 2nd.
- As soon as the keys are made available, you can claim your key by visiting our parent site, TenTonHammer.com. We will be updating this page with a direct link to the giveaway, but you will also be able to navigate to it directly from the home page on Ten Ton Hammer if you prefer.
- On the giveaway page, you will be asked a simple question that our readers here at GuildWars2Hub should be able to answer pretty easily. For those of you who are newer to the site, I'll give you a hint: Delivering the correct answer on the giveaway page will be the only way to secure your key, so be sure to familiarize yourself with some of our regular, weekly features!
- You will also be given the option to sign up for the brand new GW2Hub newsletter that we'll be kicking off later this June. More details on the newsletter and additional opportunities to sign up will be hitting the site over the next couple of weeks, but this is a great opportunity to sign up early before the rush!
Once you've secured your key, please follow these instructions for redemption to make sure you will be able to use it to participate in the beta weekend starting on June 8th.
Please Note: The keys will only grant you access to the next beta weekend. If you would like to secure access to all future beta weekends as well as 3 days head start access to the live game, you will need to pre-purchase the game which can be done on the official Guild Wars 2 website.
