Guild Wars 2 is definitely a strongly anticipated title, especially by the fans of it’s predecessor and by those that want to see what ArenaNet will be able to accomplish by applying their skills to a full featured MMORPG.

Today the developer dropped the bombshell, as after the first “friends and family” closed beta, the larger and more open phases are incoming. “Select press” will be invited in February, and through March and April a larger number of gamers will be granted access.

The release of the game itself will come later this year. Looks like the panda hunting season is approaching.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
