Guild Wars 2 Press Beta [Loads of Gameplay Videos]

The highly anticipated, upcoming MMORPG Guild Wars 2, recently held a press beta last weekend. On Monday the embargo lifted, which pretty much opened the floodgates to all the press that took part. So here are the vids I've collected... There's a lot.

I really liked the vids showing the games World vs World gameplay and various commentaries.

Thanks for this. I was trying to Google coverage together and I hit on this. Definitely going to start wading my way through after dinner.

Quite a list considering the amount of groups allowed access and the limited time of the test, just so you know though totalbiscuit has added another video since then.

Wow, fantastic list!! Can't wait for GW2 =D

STOP WITH THAT!

I know its comming, I just want arenanet to STFU and take my goddamn money! But they wont, and they keep teasing, freaking crap -.-

I really want to watch these all but I'm worried it will get in the way of some of the joy of discovery when the game really launches.

Yeah, I know. But you should at least watch the WvW PvP ones to get an idea of what it will be like. These three seem pretty good.

ANET SHUT AND TAKE MY MONEY!

also, thanks allot for making a nice list :)

I've been watching my way through the Yogscast ones very slowly. I really just want the public beta to go live so I can find out if it controls nicely (can't really get that from a video and it's immensely personal preference). If it feels smooth it's getting preordered.

Watching videos and getting hyped about things is something I try to avoid, this has my interest though.

Thanks for the list though, bookmarked.

ArenaNet actually tweeted my last night, saying they'll have a surprise for us today. Maybe it could be about the public beta.

Yeah I saw that, don't want to get my hopes up and be let down though. :P If it is the beta I'm sure it would just be the date that's a few months away.

I've got to the point where I don't want to watch any more videos and just want to wait for the beta.

A few things that look awesome though, is the down levelling when you go to older areas and help friends. Constantly playing WoW with my friends we had different times we could play and ended up having to catch up with each other or one of us coming and making the quests stupidly easy, this seems to keep the challenge and not have people worrying about getting too far ahead of the people they play with.

The quest system seems really nice as well, not having to go hand stuff in or missing out on things because you didn't accept all the quests from somewhere.

I was right. it was beta. Just signed up.

I also really like those features about GW2, because it makes playing with people always fun and rewarding. Just watching the Yogscasts play together is fun and rewarding. ^_^

Do you know when they are announcing who is in the beta?

Presumably some time after applications are closed (about 20-ish hours from now).

My guess is early/mid next week, with the first beta event then taking place on the weekend. But then I'm an optimist.
