Free trials are back! ArenaNet has partnered with several gaming sites to give away a massive amount of free trial keys for those that have yet to check out Guild Wars 2. Each site will begin giving away the keys on April 15th, so be sure to check back then! The keys will be used for the following weekend - April 19-21st - so make sure you get your client downloaded before then.

The Guild Wars 2 free trial weekend begins at 12:01 AM PDT on Friday, April 19, 2013 and ends at 11:59 PM PDT on Sunday, April 21, 2013.

Here's a link to all of the sites giving away keys. If you find more, please respond to the thread so we can add them!I'll continue to update this once I find more links. Here's an official post from ArenaNet, wherein they mention that those that participated in the last free trial are able to participate in this one by using their old login information.

Your former free trial account will be active for the April 19-21 event—to prepare, just update your game client by double-clicking the Guild Wars 2 icon on your desktop, or go to https://account.guildwars2.com/and sign in to download and install the game again!

Other 2 sites that will give away keys.

Btw is it me or did anet increased the number of players in a certain map? I noticed I haven't been in overflow since 2-3 days I think. This + the free weekend might have something to do with the April patch? Well hopefully the servers will handle the population better than in the karka event.

Yeah they should open a 10-hour trial or whatever they had in GW that's accessible all the time imo. I think even Anet is not satisfied yet with parts of their game. The design is very new player-friendly, especially because of the scaling system, new players can hop in sPvP with no disadvantage on level 1 and can do some things in WvW. The problem is that sPvP is lacking features and WvW has already long queues, so it might just scare away players who are interested in them.

They're picking select trial times because they want new players to be under the illusion that the open world is still highly active. Even if they don't have any special event this weekend (kind of expecting one) they will still at least have tons of newbies pouring into the starting areas together.
