Guild Wars: Fourth Anniversary Event Recap

Updated Tue, May 05, 2009 by Sardu

With six millions units sold and even more Tyrian characters created, the fourth anniversary of Guild Wars is definitely worth celebrating for ArenaNet and NCsoft. Reuben "Sardu" Water took a trip back into the PvP-focused world to find out what the ArenaNet team has been up to and what kind of celebrations occurred during the anniversary celebration.  His personal favorite? Roller Beetle Racing!

Rather than create a stand-alone event for the celebration, the fourth anniversary festivities instead marked a return of the Shing Jea Boardwalk, including the light-hearted PvP of the Dragon Arena and my own personal favorite mini-game Rollerbeetle Racing. During previous festivals I’ve been known to while away entire weekends racing around the Rollerbeetle track, and the fourth anniversary celebration was certainly no exception!
