Guild Wars 2's Halloween event was a success, now Arenanet keeps the free content going with Lost Shores. This would be the next major update to Guild Wars 2 and will include a major event that would only happen once, literally once. So to make sure we all don't miss it, Arenanet posted the schedule for when these events will take place.
On Friday November 16th at noon PST (20:00 GMT) the weekend will kick off with an Event in Lion’s Arch that you don’t want to miss. This will trigger events in other parts of Tyria as well. *On Saturday November 17th at noon PST (20:00 GMT), another phase will kick in. Each phase is triggered by a special event, but you will be able to enjoy additional content afterwards even if you cannot make the kick-off time. There is one exception:
The event will culminate in a big Finale on Sunday November 18, make sure you will not miss it. This will be a onetime only event chain that will run multiple hours, and it will kick off at noon PST (20:00 GMT). Again, this will only run once, so make sure you will be there! There will be plenty of content available to enjoy that will remain permanently in the world as a result of the outcome of this event on Sunday.
Not much details on this one time event but Arenanet was kind enough to give us players a heads up.
MMORPG.com got a chance to interview Colin Johanson, one of the developers of Guild Wars 2 to get some insight on the upcoming event like a new 5-man dungeon and a new PVP map. Check it out below.
I appreciate the fact that Arenanet is trying to evolve the world of Tyria as much as they can every month. During the Halloween event, the major event destroyed a big statue at the middle of Lion's Arch (One of the main cities in Tyria), and thanks to that event, the statue is gone for good. The statue was nothing important, but its good to see that these major world events does make an impact in the world, which makes me excited to how this next major event will affect the world.
With the schedule given, the first phase will happen on Saturday, at 4am for me(GMT +8). Not sure if I'll make it, but I'll definitely try.
