This week on GuildCast: The Origin of Madness preview, plans for future patches regarding living story and more!
It’s a new year for Guild Wars 2 as we ease our way into 2014. With all the new MMO games and expansions coming out this year, ArenaNet will have to up their game even more. It looks like they’re off to a strong start with next week’s patch!
The End Is Near
I know some of you are thinking “sigh, Scarlet again”. However ArenaNet said that these last four living story patches, starting with this one, will change Tyria forever. I have to say, the trailer for this patch really does sound ominously good. This time Scarlet is bringing out the bigger Sex Bo- I mean Watchwork Knights out in Lorner’s Pass along with the other clockwork horrors, Aetherblade pirates and the Molten Alliance. Along with the the new living story content is a new permanent three-headed Jungle Worm boss. It appears that this boss is located on Southsun Cove.
How Future Living Story Will Work
It looks like ArenaNet has learned from their living story patches. After the Scarlet Arc is done, ArenaNet plan to make big multi-month story arcs but make sure every month there’s a smaller complete story. To put it in perspective, it would be kind of like the Flame and Frost story line. Also, as a sidenote, when the season one for living story is done, there will be a huge feature build. This build includes quality of life changes and gameplay-changing elements.
All that and more…
