ArenaNet has announced that today marks the first Guild Wars 2 Live Story update for 2014. The story arc involving Scarlet Briar will be coming to a close as 2014 rolls along and Origins begins the end, in a manner of speaking. In Origins, players will begin to unravel Scarlet's plans for Tyria.
On one front, players must journey to the mountains of Lornar’s Pass where Scarlet is massing her armies to defeat the Twisted Marionette, Scarlet’s titanic new clockwork creation. It will require a coordinated assault by an army of players to challenge both the Marionette and Scarlet’s combined forces.The other threat lies in Bloodtide Coast, where Scarlet has awoken something ancient and dangerous. The Great Jungle Wurm is a huge beast with three ravenous heads and an arsenal of attacks at its disposal. Only a determined effort by a large group of players has a chance at defeating this menace.
