“The next episode of Living World Season 3, A Crack in the Ice, is coming next Monday, November 21. The season follows the aftermath of Heart of Thorns – a flood of unbound magic, the rise of two Elder Dragons, and the birth of the dragon Glint’s child, Aurene. In “A Crack in the Ice,” players will follow that story into the Northern Shiverpeaks, territory of the Elder Dragon Jormag. Along with “A Crack in the Ice” comes the brand-new Nightmare fractal. This five-person, instanced dungeon takes players on an upward climb through a massive tower, which is heavily guarded by powerful abominations and their toxic experiments.”
The game’s first expansion, Heart of Thorns, is currently on sale for half off through ArenaNet itself, so it’s a good time to jump in if you’d like access to all the new content (and you’ll need it to play through the living story episodes!). Massively OP’s Guild Wars 2 columnist Tina Lauro has a piece out this today to convince you why upgrading to Heart of Thorns is worth it. (And not every reason is Taimi. Promise.) Don’t miss that or the new video below.
