Registration for first Guild Wars 2 beta begins

ArenaNet has opened up registration for Guild Wars 2's first beta.

The MMO that’s release date was famously known as “when it’s ready” is finally ready…for beta! ArenaNet has revealed today that it has started up public registration for its first Guild Wars 2 beta event.

Anyone is welcome to sign up, but like the beta weekends for Star Wars: The Old Republic, it will be a selective process. Those who do register will be required to download a scanner program to read their system specifications, but ArenaNet has clarified that there are currently no finalized minimum specs for the game. The beta events, it explained, will help to determine them.

To participate in the beta, all who register must be at least 18 years of age and willing to sign a non-disclosure agreement. Also, admittance into this first beta event does not guarantee access to future events.

Guild and character names from the original Guild Wars will not be saved for the beta events, but ArenaNet assures fans that at least the original character names will be preserved for Guild Wars 2‘s launch. The developer made it clear that any characters and guilds created in the beta will be wiped before launch.

The registration period will also only last for the next two days, so be sure to register before it’s too late. To get more information about the event, check out the game’s FAQ page.

Guild Wars 2 is currently set for a release sometime in 2012 for the PC.
