ArenaNet has sent word that Living World Season 3: Episode 1 - Out of the Shadows has officially launched on Guild Wars 2 servers. Out of the Shadows gives players an opportunity to recover from the events with Mordremoth and to mourn the passing of characters of note.
In addition, a new PvP Conquest map has been added called Revenge of the Capricorn that sees players trying to take out the pirate ship Capricorn (and each other).
The Chaos Isles fractal also joins the game where players will come face to face with a Mysterious Asura while within what ArenaNet calls "unstable madness".
Lastly, those who do not yet own Heart of Thorns can take advantage of a 50% off price as the events in Living World Season 3 can only be accessed by owning it, though completing the expansion content is not required.
