Guild Wars 2 hasn’t had much luck with its expansion reveal pace lately between dataminers and leaks, and this afternoon, that bad luck continues. A tweet from IGN, apparently entrusted exclusively with the news, blabbed some pretty big Heart of Thorns information, along with a trailer, which we’re going to hide behind spoiler code for those of you who’d like to try to remain innocent. And when I say big, I mean huge.Click to reveal spoiler
Data-mining suggests that the “free” looks a lot like a limited trial, with few character slots, a cap of level 15, rank caps, and limitations on mail, chat, trade, and PvP maps.
Anet responded cheekily with, “Skritt happens.”

The social media and article were taken down within minutes, suggesting it was leaked a bit early, but Reddit has the whole recap. The trailer remains up on IGN’s servers at the time of this post’s publication. Obviously, don’t click it if you don’t want to watch it. You should probably not dip into the comments if you don’t want to be spoilered, either.
Massively OP’s Larry Everett will be at PAX to discuss the reveal with ArenaNet.
