Roller Beetle Racing is our favourite new thing about Guild Wars 2. Roller Beetles, colourful roly-poly-like things, were first added to GW2 as mounts back in June. From this week, you can now race your roller beetle in both solo and head-to-head challenges that earn great in-game prizes.
But it gets even better: roller beetle racing can earn you real-life prizes too in ArenaNet’s newly launched roller beetle racing sweepstakes!
Roll Out in a Brand New Car
Your skills with your Guild Wars 2 roller beetle could earn you a brand new Volkswagen Beetle in a custom wrapped RBR skin. From now until December 24th, you could win big real-world prizes simply by playing Guild Wars 2.
To enter the sweepstakes, create a Guild Wars 2 account and then sign up with your email address on the official Guild Wars 2 sweepstakes page. After that, you’ll be entered into the weekly and grand prize draws by simply participating in a roller beetle race.
Four weeks of sweepstakes means four different weekly prizes (in addition to the all-important car) which range in value from $500 to $10,000. Any player can enter no matter how long you’ve played the game. Check out the prizes below:
