Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns Enters Closed Beta Next Week

Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns picks up where Season 2 left off, with players journeying deeper into the Heart of Maguuma
NCSOFT and ArenaNet have unveiled that the Closed Beta testing of Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns will begin on May 26th. If you obtained a portal to the Heart of Maguuma during the special event in Dry Top and the Silverwastes, you will receive an e-mail with all the details you'll need to get started. Make sure that you've signed up for the newsletter so that developers can contact you. They will be randomly choosing a number of newsletter recipients for participation in the beta test as well.
Closed Beta participants will be able to use a revenant - or any of the existing eight professions - to play a small amount of expansion story content, followed by two beta versions of outposts and their corresponding adventures in part of the Verdant Brink map. An early, partially completed version of the day/night cycle meta-event experience from Verdant Brink will also be available.
This test is not under a nondisclosure agreement, and participants are welcome to stream and discuss their experiences.
