You can play Guild Wars 2 for free between 23-25 August, if you like

Guild Wars 2
This could be you.

ArenaNet is taking a leaf out of the drug-pushers handbook and offering you “the first few days free” with an upcoming freebie Guild Wars 2 weekend. Between 23-25 August you’ll be able to sample the game for absolutely no money at all. Just sign up at the link on this page.

It’s ostensibly to celebrate the game’s upcoming first anniversary on 28 August, and also as a thank you to people for making Guild Wars 2 “the fast-selling MMO in history.”*

If you want to get specific about it, the actual hours for the free trial period run as follows: “12:01 AM PDT on Friday, August 23, 2013 and ends at 11:59 PM PDT on Sunday, August 25, 2013.”

That’s pretty much the end of the story, there. What else can I mention that’s Guild Wars 2 related? Oh yes, the ‘Queen’s Speech’ event is happening quite soon (20 August,) so make sure to pay attention to that if you’re interested.

*Based on a very specific set of data.**

**And ‘game sells some copies’ isn’t really news.
