  • 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

    Now that the year-long story arc that embodied Guild Wars 2 season one is finished, we caught up with the ArenaNet team as part of a retrospective on the event and a sneak peek at the future. We checked in with the Lore, Story and Art departments to find out more. Check it out!

  • 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?

  • Megaserver Structure Detailed in New Dev Blog

    ArenaNet is continuing its look at quality of life improvements and feature enhancements that will be coming into Guild Wars 2 with the deployment of the next update. In today's blog post, the team outlines the megaserver structure that will be implemented. No matter what home world players reside on, they will be able to game with friends cross server thanks to the new technology.

  • Change is a Good Thing, Right?

    For an MMO to be successful, it needs to constantly evolve in order to keep the interest of the players. ArenaNet has been changing Guild Wars 2 since its launch, but none of that will compare to the changes we're about to witness! April seems to focus on players having an easier time playing the game, which I'm always for, but I still have a few concerns.

  • PvP Stars in Latest Development Blog

    As part of an ongoing series of ArenaNet developer blogs tasked with informing players about significant changes to core systems in Guild Wars 2, the team takes on the issue of PvP. In today's letter, it is announced that there will be a unification of PvP gear so that players can better craft a "look" that appeals to them. In addition, the blog speaks to giving players the ability to set their own goals for PvP.

  • Trait Resets, Armor Repair, Account Bound Gear

    ArenaNet has posted today's blog posts to discuss upcoming changes to Guild Wars 2 features. In the first of today's blogs, the team has announced that armor repair will be disappearing from the game and that big changes are in store for the Mythic Forge. Of particularly interesting note is the fact that Trait Resets will be free from here on out. The team felt that the cost hindered experimentation with different builds.

  • Social Play Improvements Revealed

    As the date for the deployment of the next Guild Wars 2 patch that will address core game features nears, the team continues to reveal more of what players can expect. In today's blog post, the team has listed several of the social features that will be enhanced in the game.

  • New Account-Wide Wardrobe Enhancements Incoming!

    ArenaNet has released some great news for Guild Wars 2 clothing and armor collectors that have long rued the inability to customize their characters exactly as they wish. From now on, everything that players collect, from armor to weapons, becomes a "skin" that is placed in a wardrobe that allow players to transmute their look on the fly. In addition, all dyes are now account-wide. Change a look, change a color, boom, done!

  • The Feature Pack is Almost Upon Us!

    Over the next few weeks, we'll hear about a bunch of gameplay tweaks and quality-of-life improvements in Guild Wars 2, set to be implemented in the April 15 update. My personal favorite-most-wanted-please-can-I-have-this-soon-I'm-begging-you feature, precursor crafting, has been confirmed as not being a part of the pack, so I've outlined three other things I'd like to see implemented - if not in the Feature Pack, then somewhere shortly down the road.

  • Tournament of Legends Announced

    ArenaNet has announced the PvP Tournament of Legends that will take place on April 26-27 in Europe and on May 3-4 in North America.

    ArenaNet's Roy Cronacher has penned the next in a series of articles designed to show Guild Wars 2 players the changes coming to the game with the next update in late April. The update will see enhancements and rebalancing of many of the game's features including, in this case, Critical Damage with the addition of a new stat, 'ferocity'.

  • The Aftermath

    The latest update to Guild Wars 2 will bring the Scarlet Briar story arc to its epic close with "The Aftermath", a look at Lion's Arch and the lasting impact of the violent attacks by Scarlet and her minions. ArenaNet has released a terrific cinematic to spotlight the destruction in Lion's Arch.

  • Scarlet’s Dead, But Are We Safe?

    For many players in Guild Wars 2, it all started with what seemed like random acts of chaos. It wasn't long before we were given a face to associate these acts with, yet would still be a wait before we saw any hint of a motive. We sought after the truth, but ended up with one we didn't want to accept. We, the heroes of Tyria, couldn't understand Scarlet Briar, and killed her. But did we kill her because it was the right thing to do, or was it because of fear - fear of what we don't understand?
