ArenaNet today announced an exciting event to whet the appetite of the Guild Wars 2 community as they send out the first wave of WvW invitations for the highly anticipated Desert Borderlands. Although the initial batch of invitations are low in quantity the developers have promised to issue more invites as time goes on. They also mentioned plans to stream elements of the Desert Borderlands content as time passes.
The Desert Borderlands WvW content is part of the upcoming Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns expansion, with this initial test focusing primarily on the stability of the content and systems in place. ArenaNet also took the opportunity to clarify future methods for public tests. The Stronghold Player vs. Player public beta tests will be open to all Guild Wars 2 players without any sign-up or requirements necessary.
Finally, players were informed that the WvW Borderlands tests are limited in nature and will be accessible via an entirely different client. For more information check out the link below.
