It's been a while since I dug out my copy of Guild Wars 2 [official site], but in just a couple days ArenaNet is going to start asking users to test out the new Stronghold PvP game in their Heart of Thorns expansion.
Pencil yourself in for April 14, when the 24-hour public beta begins. "Starting on Tuesday, 14th April at 21:00 CEST (20:00 BST), all players in the West will have the option to try Stronghold and put their skills to the test," says publisher NCSoft from on high. "This exciting new competitive mode blends deep strategy, role-based play and immersive story elements into PvP."
"Stronghold offers an entirely new way to play and watch competitive PvP in Guild Wars 2. Players take on the role of pirates or knights as they work with their allies to kill the opposing team’s lord. The mode features NPCs that players can hire for supply to help their team."
In the meantime, Guild Wars 2 is available on their official site for 75 percent off until April 13.
