Guild Wars 2 Summary
I’m so very happy that April Fools’ Day has stopped being that time of the year when people lie to each other on the internet, and has instead become a day of laughable larks and goofy good times. To that end, Guild Wars 2 is bringing the Spring frivolity a day early with a new update.
It's a new year full of new opportunities and though Guild Wars 2 did quite well in 2015, ArenaNet is certainly not going to be sitting on their laurels and basking in the success of their MMORPG. The developer announced some extensive plans to build upon Guild Wars 2 in 2016.
Today marks the launch of the Heart of Thorns expansion for Guild Wars 2, and developer ArenaNet has announced that sincea month ago, the game is enjoying its personal record number of subscribers.
The major expansion for the subscription-less MMO Guild Wars 2, Heart of Thorns, will have its third and last beta next weekend. A launch trailer was also revealed.
has made its popular MMO Guild Wars 2 free-to-play. That doesn't necessarily mean it will descend into a microtransaction nightmare, however.
The core game will be fully playable for free, but new expansion Heart of Thorns will be sold at a premium price. The studio is hoping that the expansion's new Raid dungeons and story content will sway long-time players.
