In a recent interview with IGN, Colin Johanson talked a bit about the upcoming Guild Wars 2 anniversary on August 28th and how ArenaNet plans on celebrating it with players. The update planned for the anniversary is going to showcase some pretty fun things from the sounds of it:
“We’re going to do a release on the 20th that is intended to be our big anniversary release celebration,” he explained. “That release is intended not only to provide a lot of awesome content for people to experience, but to also set the tone for what they should expect for the living world and the types of things we want to do with events in the year to come.
It takes the story of the last year and brings it all together. It makes it clear where everything has been going and really closes a lot of open questions that players have had. 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.”
Johanson also told IGN that Guild Wars 2 players will be receiving a special gift as part of the big celebration. Presents are always welcome. Make sure to check out IGN’s full article for more information.
