Guild Wars 2 End of Dragons Takes Players To Cantha, Coming February 28th

The upcoming expansion for ArenaNet's MMORPG, Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons, has a release date. The third expansion for Guild Wars 2 hits digital shelves February 28th.

End of Dragons has been long awaited since the expansion was originally revealed in 2020. The upcoming expanion focuses on the continent of Cantha which has seen itself removed from the goings on of the rest of the world for the last 200 years. Players will seek to uncover more about the Elder Dragons themselves while exploring Cantha 

Cantha itself is described in the new trailer as the "most powerful nation on Tyria," thanks in large part to its Jade Tech, which is powered by a substance players will encounter called Dragonjade. Cantha itself is returning to the franchise after being introduced originally in Guild Wars Factions, and players will be returning to a changed continent to uncover the mysteries that have unfolded since the last time we were there.

Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons brings with it new features, including the first new co-op mount, the seige turtle. Additionally, End of Dragons adds new specializations, giving players new ways to play  each professions. Oh, and you can fish, assuming airships don't fall out of the sky like they did for our unsuspecting friend in the trailer. 

Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons will release on February 28th, 2022 on PC. Leading up to the launch, ArenaNet will be streaming more details on both their Twitch and YouTube channels, which you can find a schedule of on their website.

Last month, Robin had the chance to go hands on with End of Dragons, taking the expansion for an extended spin. In her time with the game, she felt the art team "hit it out of the park" with their design, as well as lauded the fact that strike missions in End of Dragons is an essential part of the story this time around.
