Episode Five of Guild Wars 2’s The Icebrood Saga is called Power and launches January 19. Hey, that’s next week.

This is the second chapter of the multi-part finale for the Icebrood Saga. Ominously, an apocalypse is threatening to tear the land apart. As to what’s available, you’ll have access to four new Dragon Response Missions in Thunderhead Peaks, Fields of Ruin, Lake Doric, and Snowden Drifts.

Returning to Guild Wars 2 is faction recruitment. There will be two new groups with the first of these groups available at release. The second group will arrive in a few weeks along with a new craft-able second tier of the Dragonslayer weapons from Chapter 1.

Importantly, all four chapters of Episode 5 will be free for all players who own Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire and log in upon its release. The third chapter, Balance, will launch in March 2021.
