ArenaNet announced the big dates when Guild Wars 2 players will be able to check out some hotly anticipated features such as alliances and better frame rates.
Guild Wars 2 players are waiting for the next batch of content but also two features that have been constantly requested for years - alliances and multithreading.
In the case of alliances, the glossary is pretty much familiar to everyone - this is the system that will allow for a better semblance of organisation in the massive fights between the worlds. The associated beta test will commence on September 24, 2021, and it will last for a week. Before that, the devs will roll out some updates for WvW servers on August 31 in order to stress test the system before the big day comes.
Unfortunately, ArenaNet didn't post more info on the alliances themselves but they did announce a future blog will be dedicated to the feature.
If you're wondering what this multithreading thing is all about, it means that people are desperate to use their CPUs to a higher capacity in order to get frame rates that don't resemble a slide show when they meet a bunch of other players.
If you ever played Guild Wars 2, this has had to be a thorn in your side and you can't wait to experience smoother World Boss encounters and simple going through the big cities of the game. This should be closer to reality on September 21 when the DirectX 11 beta rolls out.
