Guild Wars 2 tournament set to take place during Gamescom 2014

Guild Wars 2 developer ArenaNet is bringing the massively multiplayer online title to Gamescom 2014 in a big way: The studio will be holding a Guild Wars 2 tournament during the convention, it announced today.

Called the Guild Wars 2 International All-Stars Tournament, the competition will bring together players from North America, Europe and China. ArenaNet provided no other details about the format, participants or venue today, but said it will be flying out competitors to Cologne, Germany, Gamescom's host city. Guild Wars 2 itself will appear in the Twitch booth on the Gamescom show floor.

ArenaNet originally released Guild Wars 2 on Mac and Windows PC in August 2012. Gamescom 2014 will run from Aug. 13-17 in Cologne.
