Guild War Season 2 Returns on January

The Game Director for Guild Wars 2, Colin Johanson announced on Guild War 2 official blog that Guild Wars 2‘s Living World experience Season 2 will return and bring more challenges of Tyria to players.

Guild Wars 2 is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game developed by ArenaNet and published by NCsoft. Set in the fantasy world of Tyria, the game follows the re-emergence of Destiny’s Edge, a disbanded guild dedicated to fighting the Elder Dragons, a Lovecraftian species that has seized control of Tyria in the time since the original Guild Wars. The game takes place in a persistent world with a story that progresses in instanced environments.

A few months ago, it was announced that Guild Wars 2‘s Living World experience was launching on a path that would result in the game story as well as the whole world of Tyria to reach a point of no return. And now player will finds the Pact’s fleet of airships poised to launch their assault into the jungle, and band of heroes standing before a sealed cave marked with ancient runes.

On January 13, Living World Season 2 will return to take player beyond that seal, and let them discover moments that will forever change the course of Tyria.

There will also be some exciting holiday events for players starting December 16th, 2014 across the core game modes in Guild Wars 2
