At the end of last week, ArenaNet announced its plans for a new five-week Guild Wars 2 initiative that’s intended to bring players back to the game. And as promised, the studio has now released a timeline for what it’s got in store.not that Daybreak – Daybreak as in the very first episode of the current living story season. Normally, episodes are free only while they’re the new shiny; they enter the store as paid content once they’ve been eclipsed by the next episode, which means they’re a bit of a barrier to entry for new and returning players (because who wants to start in the middle, right?). This episode will be a freebie for now to help you start the absolute most current story content from its logical beginning.
The downside to is that you have to own Path of Fire to actually play it. The upside to is that you can use the code GW2WELCOMEBACK to pick up the expansion for half off.
Daybreak originally launched at the end of 2017, so if you missed out and just want the recap, make sure to check out our own Flameseeker Chronicles’ deep-dive!
