  • Now With More Shattering!

    The Shatterer has taken his lumps through the years, and not just from Tyria's greatest heroes pounding away at his front right foot. Ever since the Tequatl revamp, players have wanted a better, more interesting experience for something that's supposed to be one of the most dangerous monsters in all of Tyria. For many of us, the Shatterer holds a special place as the first major boss encounters we saw in Guild Wars 2, and it's high time he seemed dangerous again.

  • The Shatterer Reborn

    One of the more anticipated parts of the Guild Wars 2 January 2016 update will be a reworked Shatterer world boss encounter that ArenaNet has been working on behind the scenes for some timw now. Tyrians looking for a challenge will not be disappointed. We caught up to Game Designer Andrew Gray to find out more about how this boss fight is taking advantage of gliding and more in central Tyria.

  • The Ups & Downs of Gliding in Central Tyria

    The latest developer blog on the Guild Wars 2 site deals with how gliding will manifest itself in Central Tyria. Players can expect to be able to glide from any high point once the basic gliding mastery is out of the way. Further, those players who have learned more advanced gliding masteries will be able to utilize them as well.

  • January Update to Include Gliding in Central Tyria & More

    In a new developer blog on the Guild Wars 2 site, Colin Johanson reveals that the first update for the game is going to be a massive one with some amazing new things in store. Of particular note, or at least flashy note, is the fact that gliding is coming to Central Tyria and will not be confined to the Heart of Thorns expansion!

  • A 2016 Wish List

    Last month's Wintersday Wish List was my attempt at singling out a few of the easier-to-address issues with Guild Wars 2. Today, I'm rolling up my sleeves and getting a little more muck on my arms, looking forward to 2016 and the kinds of tasks that might take a wee bit longer, if not a good portion of the year. We'll know more about ArenaNet's plans on Tuesday, but in advance of that, here are a few things I'd like to see on the long-term checklist.

  • Reviewing and Ranking the Heart of Thorns Zones

    It's been two months since Heart of Thorns launched with four new zones, and, like many of you, I've spent countless hours exploring the jungle, taking down wyverns, running for my life, getting knocked on my ass, and plunging to my death.

  • Designing the Soundscape of Heart of Thorns

    Now several months beyond the launch of Heart of Thorns, the Guild Wars 2 team is shining a light on one of the more underappreciated arts of game development - sound design. To that end, we caught up with Jerry Schroeder and Drew Cady (Sound Designers each) to talk about the behind the scenes work of bringing the Maguuma Jungle and its denizens to life.

  • Wintersday Wishes

    I think I've been a reasonably good boy this year. I mean, there was that one incident with the quaggan, the chocolate sauce, and the Volkswagen, but that was all the way back in March and I'm sure that Tixx has totally forgotten about it...

    It can be slow going in Heart of Thorns, but you'll get there eventually, as Jason optimistically points out this week.

    Proving that ArenaNet does read players' posts on various sites and social media platforms, Colin Johanson has taken to a Reddit thread bemoaning legendary effects for Engineers and announced that this was something the team would like to address in the future but that the focus right now is on "our major WvW overhaul", something that has apparently been in the works for over a year.

  • Heart of Thorns - A Foundation of an Expansion

    We've put well over 50 hours into Heart of Thorns on the road to reviewing Guild Wars 2's massive expansion. Not a single aspect of the game missed out on some new addition of another, so there was a lot to take in. We even got to play a bit of the new incredibly challenging raids that launched on the 17th before scoring our review. So then... how does Heart of Thorns stack up?
