New Guild Wars 2 beta PVP map and you’re going to lose your characters

This weekend the Guild Wars 2 beta will receive a new PVP map, “Legacy of the Foefire”. The new map will have the familiar Conquest format from the original Guild Wars. The map will feature guild lords and NPC guards along with sentries all over the map for single players to grab up some points.

If you were wondering if you can keep your beta characters when Guild Wars 2 comes out, the answer is no. All beta characters and items will be deleted before and after this beta weekend. The only thing you will get to keep is your contact list. If you bought anything in the real money in-game gem store don’t worry, when the game launches the gems you purchased will be waiting for you.
