Guild Wars 2 beta event kicks off with screenshot contest
The highly anticipated final beta weekend for upcoming MMO Guild Wars 2 is now officially live, giving players their last chance to experience the game before it officially releases on August 28.
Kicking off the the beta event is a "Guild Wars 2 Moment to Moment" screenshot contest. ArenaNet is partnering with SteelSeries to offer a prize package to those who take the best in-game screenshots.
There are two contest categories catering to two playstyles: Best Action Shot and Best Landscape Shot. All you have to do is take a screenshot and enter it into the contest on the Guild Wars 2 Facebook page. If your screenshot is one of the top six in either category you will win the SteelSeries Guild Wars 2 prize package which consists of a SteelSeries mouse, headset, and mousepad.
The competition begins today, as does the beta event, and lasts until Monday, July 23, at 11:59 pm PDT. You can enter twice if you'd like to enter both Action and Landscape categories, but there is a 24-hour wait between entries.
Voting begins on Tuesday, July 24, at 12: 01 am PDT and lasts until Thursday, July 26, at 11:59 pm PDT. You can vote twice. Following the event, ArenaNet will choose six winners from the 20 screenshots in each category that received the most votes.
