We received a message from ArenaNet in the mail today concerning the upcoming Queen's Speech update due to hit on August 20th. A pocket watch with a Guild Wars 2 engraving and a cryptic poem hint at something catastrophic about to happen when Queen Jennah gives her speech next week.
Here's the poem in its entirety:
Tick tock goes the clock
It's almost time for time to stop
Something you all must understand
Your world is built on fog and sand
You're out of time, your jig is done
It's time for Scarlet to have her fun
She has some hard lessons to teach
To the people of Divinity's Reach
So mark the date in permanent ink
The hour is later than you think
On the twentieth day she'll start her games
And warm her hands over Kryta's flames!
It also looks as though the GW2 Queen's Speech update page has been vandalized by this Scarlet or her followers. Stay tuned next week for news on just what this update will bring to Divinity's Reach.
