ArenaNet has announced that the first ever public hands-on for Guild Wars 2 will be at the gamescom event in August this year. Gamescom takes place in Cologne, Germany from 19-22 August, and fans will be able to try out the GW2 demo there for the first time. Several team members will be on hand including studio head Mike O’Brien and the German community manager Martin Kerstein. If Germany’s a bit far for you to travel, then maybe PAX Prime will better suit your needs. From 3-5 September, Seattle will host the games event where players can also try out the demo of GW2.
