Not Set
Guild Wars 2 was 6 months from the beginning of closed Beta to launch. So I guess late Summer, early Fall.

That is complete speculation though.

Just keep checking to see if the beta signup page is still there, cause as soon as it goes away I can pretty much asure you that invites will be going out soon after that...

No one knows, they only say the invites will be coming out in the coming weeks and/or months. Just keep checking in on TESO FB page, Twitter and Official Website.

I'd give it a month, max, until beta keys are sent out. They always try to make it seem like the deadline is far away and then BOOM, beta signups happen.

I'm not picking on you, this just brings up something I've always wondered:

Maybe I'm missing something, but I've never really understood the apparent need in forums to close threads. Seems like it would be pretty self-moderating. If people are interested in a subject, it will stay near the top; if not, it falls off the first page and gets forgotten. Isn't that how it should be?

I understand why Mods censor threads that are against the board rules, but why the push by board members to close threads, or worse, hostility toward threads they think are unnecessary or pointless? Isn't posting in that thread a self-defeating effort?

Indifference is the worst insult, right?

Like the rest of you, Im waiting anxiously for beta announcement also. Im testing Defiance right now and have tested many others in the years Ive been playing MMOs. They do tend to start 6-8 months before anticipated release. From the little hints Ive seen in posts and heard in podcasts, it sounds like they are planning a little more extended testing for TESO. Maybe this is just wishful thinking on my part though.

Im extremely anxious to find out if/when I get into beta, but more importantly, Im hoping they take the time to do proper testing. A game of this scope is gonna require a lot of dedicated beta time. Theres nothing worse than a game that is still just loaded with bugs and issues at release. It sounds like they are approaching it the right way though.

BTW Zenodin, I agree with your reaction to release date. hehe

Generally speaking, what you're saying is correct. Which is why I haven't closed this topic and I think it's fine as-is (people can speculate, no harm in that). I won't really close a topic unless it's bound to break rules or in some way depreciates the quality of posting around TESOF.

Anyway, just thought I'd clear that up. On topic: Yep, what @Infamous said is what I'm going with, as that's directly from ZOS. When they say in the coming weeks, I'm hoping that means fairly soon!

And no, nobody has yet received beta keys.

So I've found some pretty interesting information that you may already know but it is beta related so I thought I would post here.
Listening to episode 17 of the Bethesda podcast I found out that:

- Beta is being used to test networking, player load, and general game quality
- Beta is starting “soon” (but who really knows how "soon" is soon...it could take weeks...maybe months)
- ZoS wants to test with a very small/specific group of testers first
- Mac players will get to test ESO as well
- Early testing will be about 4-5 hours long that will be specially targeted to a certain section (eg. crafting only)
- Open beta will be 1 month - before launch
- PvP testing will happen later in beta and not when it is first launched
- Inventory capacity will be based on slots and feature sorting/filtering options
- Upon death, players may spawn where they died with a penalty, or respawn away from their corpse at a Wayshrine.
- The official release of TESO is "targeted" to be at the end of 2013.

One of the beta interview links is right here.

Well if you watch the Beta Video they tell you " VERY SOON and Over the Next Few Months " There are ppl already doing beta now. NDA prevents them from saying they have beta or alpha access.


Please be Careful who you drink with, they could be holding a Slave Collar behind them..
