If you’re wondering what’s in store for Guild Wars 2 before the end of the year, Colin Johanson’s latest post has the answers. Before he gets to those answers, though, he says that ArenaNet is seeing “massive player numbers” and that “the world of Tyria is filled to the brim.”
Bug fixes, polish, balance, and performance head the list, as well as the game’s first raid and the addition of new legendary armor sets. The new squad UI is coming, too, and ArenaNet continues to blow the Guild Wars 2 e-sports horn in the form of its first competitive pro league as well as additional PvP leagues, a guild challenger league, etc. The Wintersday festival will return, and Johanson says that the dev team will “double down” on things like combat visibility, spectating, and more.
