ArenaNet has revealed the initial details for the first Guild Wars 2 update for 2014. Called "Origins of Madness", the content update will be released on Tuesday, January 21st and will pit players against Scarlet Briar and her new scourge, the Mechanical Marionette. To give players an idea of what they will be up against, ArenaNet has released a brand new trailer.
Beginning with “Origins of Madness,” Guild Wars 2 players will once again find themselves fighting against the forces of arch-villain Scarlet Briar. The sinister sylvari engineer has worked behind the scenes throughout 2013, wreaking havoc through her minions and clockwork creations. Her exact motivations remain a mystery, for now.
As players will see in the “Origins of Madness” teaser video, Scarlet will unleash a brand-new mechanical monstrosity on the living world of Tyria: the Twisted Marionette! A gigantic robotic weapon of mass destruction, the Twisted Marionette can only be stopped by a concerted effort on the part of players.
That’s not the only threat awaiting players, as the teaser video reveals. Scarlet’s machinations have unearthed something ancient and angry in Bloodtide Coast. The Great Jungle Wurm is a huge multi-headed creature so powerful that only an army of players can challenge it
