ArenaNet opened up Guild Wars 2 pre-purchasing earlier this month, and anyone who pre-purchased (not just pre-ordered, mind you) the still undated MMO will be getting their first beta opportunity before April ends.
One of the biggest perks for pre-purchasing the game, if you'll recall, is access to all upcoming beta weekend events, and the first of such weekends will be taking place the weekend of April 27 through April 29. Two days only, but we know many of you have been waiting since 2007 to try Guild Wars 2.
Note that you can pre-purchase any version of the game -- digital or retail, standard or special -- for access. In addition to the beta events, pre-purchasing also grants a three-day headstart whenever the game comes out. Hear that, Anet? Ball's in your court. No pressure.
