The Guild Wars Sneak Peek Weekend for Guild Wars: Eyes of the North is coming soon. Players will be able to get in on 72 hours of early access to the latest addition to the Guild Wars franchise, and the first true expansion for the game.
Immerse yourself in three whole days of exclusive action-packed early access to the entire Far Shiverpeaks region. North of the so-called civilized lands lies a region blanketed in snow and ice, rife with adventure. Home to the legendary Eye of the North and the fiercely independent Norn, this mountainous tract hosts untold challenges and riches.
Expect to come across two all new races - the barbaric Norn and the magical Asura - while taking part in this Sneak Peek. You'll also have a chance at immortalizing your character in the Hall of Monuments - a new Guild Wars feature that will allow players to immortalize their characters even in Guild Wars 2. Along with all of that, you'll also be able to take part in the Norn Tournament, check out the new Dwarven boxing, and venture into the depths of Tyria - facing the dangerous dungeons of the North.
Best of all, you'll get to keep everything you obtain during this Sneak Peek Weekend - items, XP, Heroes, loot - all available to you when the expansion launches on August 31st.
So the question now has to be "How do I get in on this Sneak Peek Weekend?"
Pretty simple, just Pre-order the expansion and you're good to go. The Sneak Peek kicks off at 12:01 AM Pacific time (-7 GMT) on August 24th, 2007 and runs through 11:59 PM Pacific time on August 26th, 2007.
