Guild Wars 2: PAX, Double XP and Huge Sale

This weekend hosts a PAX South panel, Double XP and a Huge Sale on the game.

Last week, we reported that ArenaNet is hosting a Guild Wars 2 panel in the Main Theater at PAX South this Saturday to talk about what they have planned next for the game. We already knew that the panelists would include ArenaNet President and Co-Founder Mike O'Brien alongside GW2 Game Director Colin Johanson, but today ArenaNet has announced that the panel will be hosted by Jennifer Hale, a star voice actress with a long list of work including Queen Jennah in Guild Wars 2.

If you are unable to attend the panel in person, you are in luck as the panel will be livestreamed on the official Guild Wars 2 Twitch channel. That is not all, as popular YouTube and Twitch personalities will be hosting pre-show activities and post-show commentaries.

While the panel starts at 10:30am Central (8:30am Pacific), the pre-show livestream will start 30mins earlier at 10am Central. The pre-show activities will be hosted by Bog Otter, AuroraPeachy, Jebro and ChroNickGamer. Once the panel wraps up, the livestream will switch over to WoodenPotatoes and MattVisual who will give a commentary on the announcement. Running in parallel to the post-show, there will be similar commentary livestreams in German, French and Spanish.

The PAX South Panel is not the only big thing happening this weekend in Guild Wars 2. Throughout the weekend, players will be able to jump in game for a Double Experience Weekend to help level up their current characters or explore the other races and professions of Tyria. If you don't have Guild Wars 2 yet, this weekend will be the best time to jump in. Starting at 8am Pacific on Saturday and running through 11:59pm on Sunday, Guild Wars 2 will be 75% off at This sale makes the standard edition of the game only $9.99!
