The first expansion for Guild Wars 2 launches on October 23rd, which means that players are now in the final countdown. Perhaps you’d like a bit of a recap of what’s coming soon? The game’s official site has provided a quick rundown of the upcoming raids today. Raids will be 10-person ventures pitting skilled players against challenges requiring practice, coordination, and substantial gear to defeat. And your rewards? Components for legendary armor, decorations for guild halls, and the admiration of your peers.
A recap of the game’s last Guild Chat show is also available, with an episode focused on the formation of the game’s competitive Pro League and the introduction of new legendary weapons. If you don’t have time to watch the whole episode (which is embedded down below), you can get a quick recap from the official site. You could also read our own GW2 columnist’s most recent column to bring yourself up to speed. Or just listen to that song by Europe on repeat for the next 48 hours, whatever gets you through the time.
