On Monday, some subscribers to ArenaNet
’s Guild Wars 2 YouTube channel
received an email that a new video had been uploaded. Unfortunately, there was no payoff for clicking the link, because the video was marked as private.
Don your tinfoil hats, folks, because it’s conspiracy theory time.
We know that there will be at least one more beta weekend event and, if the pattern holds, we can expect it sometime in July. So far, we haven’t gotten our grubby little hands on the elusive Asura and Sylvari, which begs the question: Does this mysterious video portend that the Asura will be available for play during the next beta weekend event?
Picture a shiny new ArenaNet blog post describing the features of BWE3, complete with details about the diminutive hyper-minded Asura. We would see some new screenshots AND an amazing fly-through trailer of Rata Sum, their capital city! It’s genius. There’s no other explanation. This is it. Asura are in beta weekend event three.
You heard it here first. We called it.
