gw2 expansion: Heart of Thorns
« on: January 24, 2015, 11:49:13 AM »
They just announced the first expansion at PAX South. They're starting to talk about new features. So far I've just come to the conclusion that Arenanet's president is a really awkward presenter.


edit: (watching on twitch)

edit 2: also learned that I've been pronouncing "Maguuma" wrong for ten years.

clicky

Apparently in the half hour before the announcement officially started, they had one of the voice actresses going around asking people what they thought Heart of Thorns was (even though it was obvious to pretty much everyone for several months that they were gearing up to announce an expansion), and one guy she asked answered "PvE that doesn't suck?" Woops.

Every now and then I log back in and derp around for maybe half an hour, but I'm pretty bored of it. I don't think the expansion will actually get me back into the game.

They are bringing back guild halls and GvG though, which could be interesting, but I've never gotten into GW2's pvp system soooo...

In the realm of vaguely interesting news related to the expansion: The base game is now available to players for free - something which I'm sure will cause a some furor within the current player base. You will still have to purchase the expansion to play that content, but anyone new can try out the base game without paying up any money. There are certain restrictions on free accounts to prevent free accounts from being used to cause other problems in game, but they'll probably be constantly fiddling with those limits for a while.


link for anyone interested
