ArenaNet opens more worlds for BWE2

With all the beta keys being handed out by fan sites and all the folks getting their invitations to BWE2 from the original “million fan march”, you’d think we’d be pretty crowded with new players this weekend. ArenaNet was way ahead of you, for they’ve announced a number of new worlds that will be available this weekend:

If this is your first Beta Weekend Event, you’ll have the opportunity to pick any available server, or home world, when you log in for the first time. If you choose a home world that is in a different region from where you purchased your game, you will be logged out for a short period of time while your account is moved to your new region. All of the characters you create will play on whichever home world you select, and they’ll fight for that world in our World vs. World format.

If you played in our first Beta Weekend Event, you will already have an existing home world. We’ll have a lot more players participating in this second beta, so you may want to change your home world so you can play together with your friends. Good news, everyone! World transfers will be free of charge on June 8 from Noon PDT (GMT -7) until 6PM PDT (GMT -7) on June 9. After this point, a world transfer will cost 1800 gems with a limit of one transfer every 7 days.
