Tyria gets spooky, just in time for Halloween.
Guild Wars 2 will see its first major content update on October 22nd and, no surprise, it’s going to be Halloween themed. Get ready to step into the Shadow of the Mad King.
Shadow of the Mad King will bring new puzzles, mini-games and dynamic events to the world of Guild Wars 2 and much more:
Black Lion Trading Company
Never one to miss out on an opportunity, Evon Gnashblade has stocked all new items at the Black Lion Trading Company, including Halloween costumes and new transforms that will allow you to play Costume Brawl with fellow costumed players.
PvP Paid Tournaments
Paid tournaments will be available for competitive, five-person teams. These tournaments require tickets to enter and give better prizes than normal tournaments. Participating teams will earn qualifier points that will allow them to compete in future, larger tournaments. Tournament tickets can be earned from winning normal tournaments or purchased in the Gem Store.
The world continues to evolve with new events, jumping puzzles, bosses, mini-dungeons, and achievements appearing across a variety of maps.
So it looks like a lot of these features will be sticking around when the folks ArenaNet take down the Halloween decorations.
