Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns Playable Demo Debuts at PAX East 2015

PAX weekend heats up for Guild Wars 2 fans with first-ever expansion demo, the World Tournament Series and other special activities, all streamed on Twitch
NCSOFT and ArenaNet announced today that the first playable demo of Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns will premiere at PAX East 2015. There is a PvE demo that takes players on the first steps of the journey into the new Heart of Maguuma jungle, where they can experience the revenant, the entirely new playable profession coming with the expansion. They can also get a glimpse of the Mastery system, ArenaNet's new approach to introducing endgame progression in an MMO.
There is also a PvP demo of the all-new Stronghold game mode. Stronghold introduces new strategy and role-play into PvP with a mode where teams become either pirates or knights who must infiltrate and defend ground to kill the enemy lord. In addition to the opportunity to get hands-on with Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns, ArenaNet will have a stage at its booth running developer-hosted demos, guest play sessions with popular online Guild Wars 2 streamers and trivia contests with prizes.
ArenaNet is also holding the Guild Wars 2 World Tournament Series (WTS) Finals at the show in partnership with ESL. PvP teams from North America, Europe and China who qualified through multiple online tournaments will come face-to-face on the show floor on Saturday, 7 March, as they vie for $50,000 in cash prizes and the title of Guild Wars 2 global PvP champions.
ArenaNet will be at PAX East booth #5116 March 6-8 in Boston. The WTS Finals take place at the ESL Arena on the show floor on 7 March. The official Guild Wars 2 Twitch channel will be streaming all three days during show hours and will provide full coverage of the WTS Finals on Saturday.
