Guild Wars 2 has had a couple of successful beta waves already and they've been a lot of fun. But only three of the total five races have been included. Thankfully, the next beta weekend will include all of them.
ArenaNet has announced that during the next Guild Wars 2 beta weekend both Asura and Sylvari will be playable. Perhaps the best thing about this is each of the five races have their own starting areas, so we'll finally be able to see all of the beginner zones and make it easier to choose a race for launch.
The Sylvari are a tall race of omnivorous humanoid plants that resemble a cross between human and elf. On the other hand, Asura are short humanoids with strange proportions that look like aliens. Guild Wars 2 is definitely not short on creative races...
The next beta wave will last from July 20 to July 22nd, and it's said to be the last before the game's release date of August 28th.
