Guild Wars 2 'Visions of the Past: Steel and Fire' Out March 17th

ArenaNet announced this morning that the latest installement in The Icebrood Saga, Visions of the Past: Steel and Fire is coming to Guild Wars 2 this March 17th. The update will bring with it a new 10-player instance as players, as well as expands on the story being told by the new Living World experience.

Via a press release from ArenaNet:

On the eve of the Guild Wars franchise’s 15th birthday, ArenaNet will debut a new type of Living World experience for Guild Wars 2 titled Visions of the Past: Steel and Fire. Releasing this month on March 17, players will get a new perspective on events that have unfolded thus far in The Icebrood Saga as they get up close and personal with the charr, enlisting in Ryland Steelcatcher’s Steel Warband and uncovering new mysteries locked away deep in the Shiverpeaks. 

The new 10-player instance will task players to escort a charr Desvatator tank to the top of the mountains, playing into the story being told concerning the charr attempting to awaken Elder Dragon Jormag. Additionally, players who check out Visions of the Past: Steel and Fire will be able to scry in the Eye of the North, which will give them the opportunity to check out past missions from Living World Season One. 

Finally, Guild Wars 2's latest update will bring with it new items, such as an Advanced Norn Armor set and cape, as well as unique weapon skins. 

To check out Visions of the Past, you'll need Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire, though the Eye of the North hub will be available to any Guild Wars 2 player. Guild Wars 2's Visions of the Past: Steel and Fire will hit servers on March 17th.
