Guild Wars 2’s next living story episode ‘All or Nothing’ launches January 8th

Guild Wars 2 players won’t be surprised that ArenaNet has just revealed the key details of its next living story and its trailer, given that an advertiser unwittingly leaked it and I’m guessing we weren’t the only press room grappling with how to cover it while protecting everyone from spoilers!

Fortunately, we’ve been spared all that drama, as it’s all out in the open now. The episode is called All or Nothing and is set for January 8th. “As the Commander heads toward the ultimate showdown with the Elder Crystal Dragon Kralkatorrik, Tyria’s entire landscape stands to be reshaped,” ANet says. Content includes:

  • A new fractal, Siren’s Reef, in which players will work to break the isle’s curse while surrounded by an army of ghost pirates
  • A new map, Thunderhead Peaks, which sees players returning to the dwarven Thunderhead Keep from the original Guild Wars
  • The legendary longbow Pharus that calls down the power of cosmic light
  • A new mount mastery, Bond of Faith
  • The new Diviner gear set
  • The new upgradeable Dragonsblood weapon set

Prior to the announcement, Reddit had pulled apart the whole thing already as it does and noted that Thunderhead Keep was the site of a key Guild Wars 1 mission, now confirmed here, so it looks like we’re getting some fun nostalgia here once again!

look like the next expansion going to be the shiverpeak.

GW2 BASE: Base Tyria with some holes
GW2 EXP1 – Jungle (MAGUMA)
GW2 EXP2 – Desert (Elona..)
GW2 EXP3 – Snow (Shiverpeak) i would say 2019

than i think its right to say 2021 would be the Cantha expansion.

Is there a 3rd xpac announced?

Nop, they usually announced close to release but they said they doing expansion every 2 years.

So that put us on 2019 release for third expansion.
And look like we going back to shiverpeak so they building the road for the next expansion.

As I see it cantha would be like before on separated map and they going to milk it and make it bigger like making expansion for the zones in there.
But that’s only be after they finished with the tyria map.

Sorry mate, they (I think it was Mike Z) already announced that they’re going straight into another Season, no Xpac in between.

Ah…Thunderhead Keep. That mission was a backbreaker in the early gw1 days.

Who’s gonna die this episode? How is the Pact Commander gonna screw things up this time? Place your bets, place your bets!

I hate the commander in gw2, feels like I’m playing some bumbling jrpg protagonist.

Early January and longbow legendary. Oh hell yeah! I’ve been waiting for the second longbow for so long. I think it looks good enough. I was worried I wouldn’t like it.

Really want to play this game but I just can’t because of the PvE balance.

I really wish that players could pick weapon skills in PvE so we don’t end up with weapons that have literally two button rotations (Guardian Hammer)
