'Guild Wars 2' End of Dragons Final Beta Begins Tomorrow - Trailer

by Rainier on Nov. 29, 2021 @ 11:16 a.m. PST

Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons returns players to the Mysterious Realm of Cantha alongside new legendary weapons, personal skiffs, and new co-op mount.

Guild Wars 2 redefines massively multiplayer online roleplaying games with visceral, action-oriented combat; a gorgeous, living world full of constantly evolving dynamic events; customizable personal storylines that are unique to each player; intense Player vs. Player combat between small teams or massive armies; and most importantly, a shared online world where players work together as allies instead of as rivals — all with no monthly subscription fee.

The dragon cycle that has sustained and blighted Tyria for ages is collapsing. Mortal hearts and choices will define this moment in history—and echo in the future forever.

Over two centuries ago, the Empire of the Dragon severed all bonds with central Tyria and Elona. Cantha has its own history of turmoil and triumph, reflected in ancient landmarks, enduring artistry, and modern life.

The fourth and final beta for Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons kicks off tomorrow, November 30, and runs until Saturday December 4, giving players the chance to play with all nine of the expansion’s elite specializations together. They will additionally get to try the siege turtle, End of Dragons’ lumbering co-op combat mount, for the first time.

The siege turtle features jump jets to lift its immense mass to incredible heights, while a second player can hop into the gunner seat and fire off volleys from the turtle’s intimidating jade tech cannons. Deploying its airborne slam to cause damage to enemies, the driver and gunner can work together to keep the ammunition flowing and enemies throughout Tyria quaking in its rumbling path.

Each new elite specialization provides a new twist on the core Guild Wars 2 professions, opening up new gameplay possibilities while exploring new avenues of player expression via new new skills and abilities.

Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons is available for pre-purchase starting today at the official website for $29.99, and includes a bundle of pre-purchase bonus items, including a Flame Serpent Weapon Chest, a Shing Jea Mosaic Cape, a special Prodigy of Shing Jea character Title, a shared inventory slot, and a level 80 character boost. The Deluxe Edition ($54.99) comes with the standard edition bundle, plus another batch of exclusive items: a Shing Jea Dragon Boat Skiff skin, a Canthan Raptor mount skin, an additional character slot, and an Identity Repair Kit. The End of Dragons Ultimate Edition ($79.99) includes the exclusive Standard and Deluxe Edition items, plus 4,000 Gems, Guild Wars 2’s premium in-game store currency.

Additionally, to commemorate the launch of End of Dragons, ArenaNet is making available a special edition premium statue of the Elder Dragon Aurene, the player character’s stalwart in-game companion. Sized at 8-by-10 inches, this translucent crystalline sculpt of Aurene in her regal Eye of the North pose will be available for pre-order from the Guild Wars 2 web site between July 27 and August 20 for $120 plus tax and shipping. She will also come with a digital redemption for a unique in-game character cape with her logo emblazoned upon it.

Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons is scheduled for launch in February 2022.
