The patch notes released yesterday reaffirm that the Super Adventure Festival will begin on Thursday, but there’s no mention of World 3, which honestly does comport with ArenaNet’s longstanding assertions that it was unlikely to expand it further, at least this year, as they’re working on a not-so-secret expansion.
However, if you were hoping for a new round of holographic skins, that seems assured, as the patch notes (and datamining alike) confirm the new Crimson Assassin set (they’re red). It also looks like there’s a fresh reward track for SAB as well as new cash shop buyables, including a new music box.
The rest of the patch is a motley assortment of bug fixes, the return of Basket Brawl, tweaks for SAB, tweaks for fractals, some new crafting mats, and the updated lockbox.
In other news, if you’re in Seattle, will you be attending the Guild Wars 2 concert tonight?
“These two concerts are dedicated to performing Maclaine Diemer and Lena Chappelle’s haunting score composed for ArenaNet’s video game, Guild Wars 2. The musical performance will be accompanied by conceptual design artwork by ArenaNet artists.”
