Just a few minutes ago, ArenaNet announced the next expansion for Guild Wars 2! Path of Fire, which will hit shelves September 22, 2017, will reintroduce the community to the Crystal Desert with the goal of hunting down the rogue god Balthazar.
Tyria's heroes thwarted the first stage of his catastrophic plan to destroy the Elder Dragons—but now he's raised a zealous army to cut a path of terror and destruction across the south. You must halt their march before Balthazar sets the foundations of the world ablaze.
Some new features include:
Mounts arrive in Guild Wars 2! Far more than a simple speed boost, mounts are a whole new way to explore the world of Tyria. Players will unlock and train new companions using the max-level Mastery character progression system, and explore Tyria freely.
- Powerful new way to explore the world.
- New ways to solve puzzles, approach problems, and move through Tyria.
- Changes the way players view the world – new ideas for interaction and discovery!
Players continue to evolve and customize their level-80 characters with new elite specializations for each profession. A variety of new playstyles, weapon choices, and traits to choose from result in more options than ever to play.
FREE PREVIEW WEEKEND!
An open-world preview weekend will run August 11-13, available to anyone with a Guild Wars 2 account in good standing. Players will be able to experience part of the opening story of Path of Fire, and explore the Crystal Oasis map astride the raptor mount.
