The first content update for Guild Wars 2: Secrets of the Obscure launches today, free for all expansion owners. Titled “Through the Veil,” the update will add Inner Nayos, a new map outside the bounds of Tyria that is home to the Kryptis and their vast hordes, along with new rewards, new relics, and Convergences, a new large-scale activity for up to 50 players. Convergences will challenge heroes to confront the Kryptis’ most legendary champions in challenging encounters while offering some of the expansion’s most tantalizing rewards.
Guild Wars 2 is a visually stunning online game that offers players the epic grandeur of a massive role-playing environment combined with action combat, large-scale dynamic events that players tackle together, and team-based and World vs. World competitive battles. Available on Windows PC and Steam, the game is updated frequently with expansion and free content that chronicles the ongoing story of Tyria and introduces new environments and activities to explore. Yet with all these updates, the game continues the no-subscription-fee business model that made the original Guild Wars so popular.
The trailer opens with a small recap of the previous Guild Wars 2 storyline. Then we enter the Realm of Dreams and see visually stunning scenery and monsters to fight. Nightmarish adventure awaits, so drop what you’re doing and download the game.
On November 28, players will get their first chance to try out a new weapon on their favorite profession. In advance of the next major expansion update, players will have a chance to demo the upcoming expanded weapon proficiencies feature and provide feedback. This special beta event will run from November 28 until December 3.
