ArenaNet is rolling out Roller Beetle Racing in Guild Wars 2 starting tomorrow, November 27th. Roller Beetle Racing allows players to strap in to their roller beetle mounts and face off in head-to-head races across five unique tracks. The new public events will be available to all Guild Wars 2 players, veterans and brand new commanders alike.
There are a ton of in-game rewards for Roller Beetle Racing, as well as a few prizes from Alienware and Razer, but one of the oddball Roller Beetle prizes is part of a month-long sweepstakes. ArenaNet is giving away a custom-wrapped Roller Beetle Racing style "Type RBR" Volkswagen Beetle.
Participation instructions are below:
To participate, players simply need to opt-in to email communication at https://www.guildwars2.com/rollerbeetle/ and enter one roller beetle race during the sweepstakes period, which ends on December 24. Each week, joining a race automatically enters the player into a drawing for great weekly prizes as well as the grand prize once the sweepstakes concludes. Weekly prizes include a complete Razer PC package, which contains a Razer BlackWidow Elite keyboard, Kraken Tournament Edition headset, Naga Trinity mouse and Goliathus Extended Chroma mouse mat; an Alienware Aurora PC and monitor; a vacation to San Diego featuring a sand dune buggy excursion; and a home theater entertainment system.
Each weeky entry counts for the grand prize, allowing everyone to earn up to four entries for the final drawing.
The roller beetle mount was added to Guild Wars 2 back in June as part of the game's Living World Episode 3, Long Live the Lich. To help players get their hands on a roller beetle mount, Episode 3 will be free to play for all Guild Wars 2 players until January 7th, 2019.
