Latest Headlines for Guild Wars 2

  • 4 Things You Still Won’t Have in Heart of Thorns

    Every game, no matter how successful, will always be missing something players want. Whether it be a feature from a previous game in the franchise, or a highly demanded map on the forums. That's what's so special about expansions and sequels. They can expand the games experience by adding in these missing features. But we don't always get what we want, and this seems to hold true in HoT, as 4 very popular wishes among players will once again be absent.

  • Stronghold Public Beta to be Held on April 14th

    Guild Wars 2 players looking to get a look at one of the most anticipated features of the forthcoming Heart of Thorns expansion will have a chance to do so for 24-hours on April 14th. During the special event, all players can log into Heart of Thorns and try out the Stronghold PvP feature shipping with the expansion.

  • If At First You Unsucceed - The Evolution of Guild Wars 2's Zones

    I've certainly not hidden the fact that I love the new age zone design for Guild Wars 2. It looks as if what we've seen in Dry Top and the Silverwastes will continue in Heart of Thorns, and I couldn't be happier. Well, I could be happier, strictly speaking, but it's not ArenaNet's fault that I haven't won the lottery yet (#&*@$ real-life RNG...).

  • Points of Interest to Cover Heart of Thorns Story

    Tomorrow's Guild Wars 2 Points of Interest live stream will be a fascinating one for players looking forward to the upcoming Heart of Thorns expansion. The broadcast will take place at 12:00 pm Pacific / 3:00 pm Eastern in the Guild Wars 2 room. Lead Writer Bobby Stein and Narrative Designer Scott McGough will be discussing how story will be embedded in every part of the expansion.

  • Personal Story Restoration Detailed

    A few weeks ago, ArenaNet announced that it would be restoring the Guild Wars 2 Personal Story, most notably replacing the deactivated "My Greatest Fear" story. In addition, steps from Chapter 8 were moved to Chapter 7 which created an issue with players not being able to access some content and gave a feeling of discontinuity to the overall story arc.

  • ArenaNet Wants You to be Legendary

    The weapon is considered to be one of the most important aspects of a character. Sure your armor makes you look great, while also keeping those arrows from piercing your lungs, but the weapon you wield is what really strikes fear into the heart of your enemies. The legendary weapons in Guild Wars 2 are seen as a sign of great prowess, marking one as a member of the elite. But soon that status may extend to more players.

  • Precursor Crafting Mini-Q&A

    Last week, ArenaNet laid out the first details for the new Legendary Crafting ability that high-level players will have access to when Heart of Thorns launches. We had the opportunity to interview game designer Lindsay Murdock about the precursor aspect of the journey.

  • Crafting Your Own Legendary Weapon

    Legendary weapons in Guild Wars 2 have, up to now, only been available by purchasing from the trading post, through the Mystic Forge, or via drops. However, Heart of Thorns will change all that and allow players to embark on a journey to craft their own Legendary Weapons.

  • Traitors In Our Midst

    This week, Jason ponders the social repercussions of Mordremoth's rise and how the other races of Tyria could or should react to the "threat" of rogue sylvari.

  • Blog Details New Desert Borderlands WvW Map

    A new developer blog has been posted by Guild Wars 2 game designer Tyler Bearce. In it, Bearce discusses the new WvW Desert Borderlands map and how it will bring new elements to PvP. The team, Bearce writes, has learned a lot about "what works and what doesn't in the time since releasing the original game." To that end, the team wanted to give players something really new that should give players new battlegrounds to master.

  • Sylvari: A People Torn

    Back before Guild Wars 2 was released the Sylvari were already captivating the minds of future players. We had the chance to see the Sylvari undergo dramatic changes as more news poured out of the gates of ArenaNet into the internet. When we finally got the chance to be one of these unique people, we found that they weren't only visually stunning, but had an incredible story that will only get more complex with HoT.

  • WvW Maps Removed as Requirement for World Completion

    ArenaNet has posted a new blog to let Guild Wars 2 players know that the World vs World map component required to complete the "World Completion" achievement has been removed. The next time players log into the game, the updated totals will be reconfigured to accurately reflect the change.

  • Returning to Tyria with Heart of Thorns at PAX East

    It's been a while since I played Guild Wars 2. Fortunately, ArenaNet was showing off the upcoming expansion, Heart of Thorns, at this year's PAX East, and I can't really think of a better way to re-introduce myself to the game than to check out the latest and greatest ArenaNet has to offer.

  • Chris Whiteside Leaving ArenaNet

    Without full details about the news, it appears that Guild Wars 2 Production Lead Chris Whiteside is leaving ArenaNet. The information was posted to his Facebook page with several sources sending word. As yet there is no word on the Guild Wars 2 site.

  • Update that Includes First Person Camera Delayed

    The next Guild Wars 2 update slated for deployment today, March 10th, has been delayed. Players will have to wait a bit longer for the first person camera that is in QA for an indeterminate amount of time to assess its readiness for live servers. At this point, ArenaNet does not have a specific date when the update will be released but has promised to keep the community informed.

  • Beta Streaming Client Ready to Test

    ArenaNet has a blog post on the Guild Wars 2 site that announces the beta version of the new streaming client.
