Guild Wars 2 will resurrect the Festival of the Four Winds once again next week


ArenaNet announced today that as expected, the Festival of the Four Winds event will return to Guild Wars 2 next week on July 30th. The festival is notable for the fact that it had disappeared from the game for four years before its resurrection last summer. Now it appears it’s returning again.

There’s isn’t much about the event on the official site beyond the date, but here’s last year’s pitch:

“On behalf of Queen Jennah of Kryta and the Captain’s Council of Lion’s Arch, you are cordially invited to participate in the return of the Festival of the Four Winds! High atop the Labyrinthine Cliffs, our Zephyrite friends have been working in tandem with Lion’s Arch to host an incredible variety of fun vendors and events to entertain visitors from all across Tyria. This celebration of unity and peace between our cultures is more important than ever before, and we hope that you will join us in the festivities. In this spirit of cooperation, Queen Jennah has personally overseen the reopening of the Crown Pavilion, featuring a variety of challenges both new and old for Tyria’s finest to test their mettle!”

Want something to mull over while you wait for the fun to begin next week? Our own Guild Wars 2 columnist penned a Flameseeker Chronicles this morning arguing that the game just so happens to be the perfect starter MMO.
