Guild Wars 2 News

Latest Headlines for Guild Wars 2

  • Save & Replay Content with New Journal Feature

    ArenaNet has revealed an interesting new feature that will arrive with Guild Wars 2 Season 2 that is slated to start on July 1st. Players will be able to 'bank' and 'save' Living World updates to play at a later time, a feature similar to DVR replayability. Players logging in during the two week span of a Living World update will be able to bank the content to play at a later time, all working alongside each player's own personal storyline.

  • Feel the Rush!

    So I finally beat Liadri, the Concealing Dark last week. I needed a specialized build and had to remap my keybinds for efficiency. It took me somewhere around 20 tries - 10-ish each on my necromancer and engineer - which isn't that many to hear some people talk about it, but it was still a thrill when I finally got her down. My hands were literally shaking at the end, and it took me nearly a minute to calm down to the point where I could type again.

  • Fifth Hottest Game in China, Tops WoW

    Guild Wars 2 has been out only a short time in China and it has already scaled the Top 10 list to sit squarely at #5, one spot ahead of World of Warcraft.

  • What Lies Ahead for Tyria?

    A new teaser and clue has been sent to us to entice Guild Wars 2 players to speculate as to what Season 2 will bring starting on July 1st. Now that things are on the mend, what do you suspect is incoming? Let us know what YOU think based on this picture.

  • Awesome Design

    The epic battles, amazing visuals, and compelling story all make Guild Wars 2 so much fun. ArenaNet did such a great job designing this MMO, but the real beauty of it didn't hit me till earlier last week. Guild Wars 2 is the only game that's designed in a way that I can not only get some of my friends to play, but also some of my family as well. I finally have a game that I can play with everyone that I care about at the same time!

  • Festival of the Four Winds Breezes Into Game

    Guild Wars 2 players who helped liberate the city of Lion's Arch can now head back to the beleaguered city to help rebuild it. During the Festival of the Four Winds, players will be able to participate in a number of activities to do so. The festival is an updated one that celebrates the release of Guild Wars 2 in China.

  • How to Get a Legendary Without Driving Yourself (Too) Crazy

    Getting a legendary weapon is a long, and often tedious process. It involves a ton of grind over hundreds of hours of gameplay, from farming champion bags to endlessly repeating easy dungeon paths to bookmarking Ancient Wood and Orichalcum maps on the Internet so you can sweep through a zone and get the best mats in the least amount of time process. It's a mind-numbing bore that will leave you burned out on Guild Wars 2 and hating life more than a centaur hates humans.

  • Festival of the Four Winds to Celebrate Chinese Launch

    ArenaNet has announced that Guild Wars 2 will begin live service on May 15th. As part of the celebration of the launch, a new in-game event called "Festival of the Four Winds" will kick off worldwide. During the event, the Zephyrites return to help rebuild Lion's Arch. Players will participate in events and challenges to raise funds to rebuild the city devastated by Scarlet Briar and her forces.

  • The Future of WvW

    One of the reasons I was drawn to WvW was the fact that I could become stronger by gaining ranks. Now this feature wasn't in the game at launch, but was of one of the biggest changes made in WvW. Just like the rest of Guild Wars 2, WvW receives updates and changes to make the experience more enjoyable. The last update introduce a whole new battleground for armies to conquer. I love the changes that have been made to the play type, but there are still some things missing.

  • Are You Being Megaserved?

    So maybe I was a little too optimistic about the Megaserver... At least from a technical standpoint, everything seems to be going smoothly. I haven't heard of any uptick in crashes or anything like that, and any performance issues appear to be resulting from known, pre-existing issues (which I'll get into shortly).

  • WvW: Should I Follow the Zerg or Go Havoc?

    When I first started playing Guild Wars 2, all I played was PvE. It was fun to be part of the lore, and do dungeons runs, but after I explored the world it was time for something else. That's when I tried WvW, and I've been hooked ever since! There's just something special about doing battle with enemy armies, or sneaking behind enemy territory to stop their supply flow! The only bad thing is deciding if I should become a part of the zerg, or go havoc!

  • Once You Go Charr, You'll Never Stray Far

    "Guild Wars 2 will change the way we play MMOs forever!" That was a common claim we heard, both from ArenaNet and from idyllic fans, while the game was in development. While much of what the game did wasn't brand new in the MMO space, the way it was all implemented and brought together made it so that I now have trouble playing a game that doesn't implement those systems.

  • Feature Pack, Largest Ever Game Update, Finally Arrives

    The much-anticipated Feature Pack update for Guild Wars 2 has finally arrived. The pack brings overhauled systems, new features and several amazing quality of life enhancements into the game. This first feature pack begins a cycle of updates that will be specifically tailored to game systems and features. It is completely separate from the Living Story updates that will also continue as before.

  • The Improvements We've Been Waiting For

    Today the first mammoth Feature Pack goes live in-game ANet gives us a Living Story break before season 2 begins (presumably next month when the game launches in China, I'd say). We had a great interview and demo of the new pack on the dev server with Colin Johanson and Jon Peters, which we've pasted past the break.

  • Experience Tyria All Over Again

    I remember playing the Guild Wars 2 Beta, and entering my first event. Eight other players were in the area, and without needing to say a single word to each other, we grouped up and brought some justice in a small part of Tyria. I recently started a new character, and was in that same area, and the very same event popped up. I couldn't find a single other player near me. I wish things were like the early days, where exploring a new area was exciting. My wish may be granted!

  • The ArenaNet Team on the Aftermath of Season 1

  • Megaservers and You

    ArenaNet saved the best - or at least the biggest - announcement for last. Megaservers will fundamentally change how Guild Wars 2 operates, altering the dynamics of its social structure and its biggest events. Change of this magnitude is rarely universally accepted, and a quick browse through the forums and social media will tell you that's the same in this case. So what's the good and what's the bad of this new, Tyria-shattering tech?
