Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire free preview weekend event is now live

When ArenaNet unveiled Guild Wars 2’s second expansion, Path of Fire, last week, it also said it would be hosting a free preview week for those who wanted to get a feel for the expansion’s new content ahead of its release. Well, that free preview weekend event is now live and will remain so for the next few days.

According to this post on the Guild Wars 2 website, the preview weekend event runs from today, August 11, until this upcoming Sunday, August 13. While the event is live, anyone can log in and play a small chunk of the Path of Fire expansion’s new content, including the entire first part of the expansion’s new story campaign, the expansive Crystal Oasis region, and even the Raptor mount, one of several different mounts that will be available in the expansion’s full version.

If PvP is more your game, you’ll be happy to hear that ArenaNet is also planning a second weekend preview event for the weekend of August 18-20, an event which will allow players to try out Path of Fire’s new elite specializations in both structured and World vs. World PvP.

Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire is scheduled to launch in just a few weeks time on September 22.
