ArenaNet has revealed the new location for Guild Wars 2 End of Dragons.
Shing Jea island is the next location for Guild Wars 2’s End of Dragons. End of Dragons is set to be the third expansion for Guild Wars 2 and was recently delayed out till February 2022. At the time of the delay, ArenaNet cited a challenging environment,
“As expansion development has progressed and the real-world challenges of the past year and a half have changed the way we live and work, it’s become clear that we need a little more time to deliver our creative vision for Cantha. As a result, we’re delaying the release of Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons from late 2021 to early 2022."
To that end, we have a trailer showing off a new location we’ll explore in End of Dragons called Shing Jea. As described,
“Over two centuries ago, the Empire of the Dragon severed all bonds with central Tyria and Elona. Cantha has its own history of turmoil and triumph, reflected in ancient landmarks, enduring artistry, and modern life.”
Additionally, ArenaNet is hosting a gameplay preview of the new location on the official Guild Wars 2 YouTube channel here. We recently had the chance to check out the End of Dragons beta. If you’re interested, you can check out our impressions here.
