ArenaNet announced yesterday that the next installment in the Guild Wars 2 living story was in the works with the first installment of The Secret of Southsun coming next week. We cornered Isaiah Cartwright to find out more. See what he had to say and then head to the comments to join the discussion.
To start out, we asked Isaiah why Southsun, why now? He explained that Southsun had a nice splash back in November but then got quiet. The team really enjoyed working on the zone and this was a chance to go back and build something new for players. The update gave the devs a reason to work on the refugee storyline and add some lore about the Consortium. Basically players will follow along the story that the refugees have come to SouthSun to look for work and the Consortium has put them to task. However, there is more than meets the eye and the players will meet a new NPC named Kiel who is looking out for the refugees best interest.
