Over on IGN, Colin Johanson was kind enough to drop a few hints about the upcoming Guild Wars 2 anniversary celebration. Despite the game's actual birthday being in a few short weeks, celebrations are expected to begin on August 20th. Colin teases that this next update ties the past living story arcs into a single knot that will greatly impact the current game world, as well as pave the way for more permanent content. It's also due to set the stage for the next phase of the living story, so fingers crossed on that one. Players can also look forward to the fun of receiving birthday presents on characters who have survived a year in Tyria. No word on the specifics of the gifts, but luckily you won't have to wait too long to find out.
It’s a story that really affects the entire world and permanently creates content and change for the entire world game-wide, which is really something that’s important to us and we want to showcase that that’s where stuff is headed.
