  • Heart of Thorns and Character Progression

    Players have been waiting for this moment, but that wait is finally over. The first expansion to Guild Wars 2 is finally announced! Even though not everyone could make it to PAX, Twitch allowed tens of thousands of players to tune and and soak up the excitement, and boy did we soak it all up. ArenaNet not only announced the long awaited expansion, but also gave some info regarding the features of Heart of Thorns, which seem to focus around character progression.

  • Unpacking the Heart of Thorns Announcement

    We've been waiting a good long while for any peep about a full-fledged expansion for Guild Wars 2. ArenaNet's flagship has seen a host of Living World updates, gameplay and feature additions, and balance tweaks, but the promise of a canonical expansion has been elusive. Just last month, I wrote about some alternatives to GW2's Living World, with an expansion being the obvious choice to drive the post-launch game forward and create a new revenue stream.

  • An Expansion, Finally!

    Is this real? Has the moment I, and countless other Guild Wars 2 players, have been waiting for finally come? I mean, why else would ArenaNet register another name? What other reason would they possibly have to book an entire room to themselves at Pax? If this doesn't all lead to the official announcement of an expansion, then I have no idea what ArenaNet has around the corner. I guess they could producing a series of Amiibo like figures to act as adventuring buddies.

  • The Daily Grouse

    I'm still not totally on board with the new dailies. Judging by this massive thread on the official forums, it seems I'm not alone. I still stand by my original article last month that it's not a big enough change to make me rip my hair out and quit the game or anything quite so drastic, but I'm also not sure the revamp is having the desired effect.
