Guild Wars 2’s First Major Content Update Is Incoming

on October 19, 2012 4:55 PM

On October 22nd, ArenaNet will push live the first content update for their recently-released MMO, Guild Wars 2. This update masquerades as the game’s first Halloween event (or holiday event of any kind, for that matter). It will reintroduce the Mad King back to the world of Tyria, and I suppose we’ll end up finding out what he’s been doing for the last 250 years.

The update will also include new dynamic quests, items and holiday-themed events that will progress in a series of stories over the coming weeks, culminating on October 31st – Halloween itself. The various stories revolving around the Mad King will activate on the 22nd (when the patch is scheduled to go live), the 26th, 28th and 31st.

A trailer was released that speaks of this content, which I have faithfully stashed below, for your viewing pleasure.
