Guild Wars 2’s next living story episode, A Bug in the System, launches March 6

After just a week’s delay, ArenaNet has rolled out the teaser trailer for Guild Wars 2’s next living story episode.

Dubbed A Bug in the System, the second episode of season four launches March 6th. Anet is promising a new map with its requisite storyline and mastery, as well as a new legendary dagger, and if you’re tired of desertscapes, you’ll dig the techy Asura lab that apparently features here as our heroes embark on their heist-like hunt for Joko’s base. You gotta love the presentation on this one.

Here’s our regular reminder to log into your accounts, even if you’re on a freebie with no expansions, to “bank” the current episode before A Bug in the System is live. Though you won’t be able to play it sans expansion, you can play it for free should you upgrade at some point in the future.

The trailer is below!

Really good trailer.

Ocean’s Eleven turns in The Walking Dead. I dig it.

Sure glad they hired a promo team, nice to see a real trailer. Feels like this episode is going to have a horror vibe to it, I only hope this doesn’t turn into a stealth episode ( I only managed to do that episode where you play as Caithe once, if I wanted to play in that style I’d be playing a fucking Thief). It will probably be at least a month before my new Reaper is even ready to tackle the story (since I’m all the way at the beginning of the story).

Um…that trailer took an unexpected–but very cool–turn. Was that an original song at the end? I wasn’t aware that GW2 had that sort of music (w/vocals) in-game?

The song “Fear Not This Night” played over the credits when you finished the launch campaign. It’s a very beautiful song. This is a new version sung by GW2 music composer to be creepy.

Ok, that’s the best trailer they’ve done for a long time. Maybe the best they’ve ever done. Hope the gameplay lives up to it.

That’s a great trailer. So different for them. And the darker “Fear Not This Night” was chilling. I almost wish they had saved that for a new expansion.

Love that they’re finally putting the patch feature list in the trailer. Mind you it would have been better to start that last patch because it was a bigger patch. But at least they’re doing it now.

Another neat thing they’re doing in advertising is their new “friendship” campaign which I find very heart warming and not only an advertisement for GW2 but MMO’s in general. It would be neat if Massively: OP posted about those when they come out.

I stopped regularly playing GW2 around three years ago, although I jumped in for a couple of months to play through HoT before the Fire expansion. I still like the game! Just not enough to play it, oddly.

Aside from the above, I do make sure to get all the download content that’s released. I know I’ll return to it again one day. It’s a good MMO to hit as an in-betweener.

I had planned on putting GW2 on the backburner for a while (always a good thing to do every now and then to prevent burning myself out on an mmo I enjoy), but I guess with this cool looking Act 2 of Season 4 I will have to hang a while longer. ;)

The Asuran lab at the beginning of the trailer made me think of Old World Blues from Fallout New Vegas and Doctor Orderly MD PhD DDS!

That trailer! started “oh so cute” then slowly turning into something i could see SWL do, i mean the places they show feels like SWL places.
