Guild Wars 2 Closed Beta launches soon, and you can’t get involved

The highly anticipated online 3D fantasy role-playing game, Guild Wars 2, is about to enter a Closed Beta program for the PC platform and the developers refuse to reveal how one can be a part of the program.

“We will officially enter Closed Beta Testing this Friday. It will be marked with an increase in our pool of testers. To clarify, this phase of testing is still under NDA and is not open to the public. Based on the feedback we get from our current Closed Beta Testing, we will determine the next phases of our beta program in which we will open beta access to more people,” the developer ArenaNet stated on Reddit.

ArenaNet doesn’t even want to say how the lucky ones were able to get into the program. “For the sake of clarity: we’ve talked about closed beta and by that we mean that there is no public information about how to get in, as we’re selecting the candidates carefully. We will not reveal any more information apart from what we just said.”

One can only assume that the developers picked seasoned members of the Guild Wars community to participate in this new Closed Beta program of the new game. Either way, our only glimpse into the game is via the video shown above.

Guild Wars 2 is expected to launch in 2012.
