Living World update:
a new story direction
Living World, an original story expansion for Guild Wars 2, offers engaging content as well as a unique storyline system rarely seen in other MMORPG video games. The existing world changes according to the outcomes of player’s actions in Living World, which results in a constantly evolving and dynamic timeline. With every update, each story can be uniquely expanded tremendously.
A nuanced combat
With its unique setup allowing players to modify available skills and attack scope by equipping different weapons without any class limitations, this game adopts a new take on the preexisting MMORPG combat system and presents new perspectives and entertainment. With a high degree of freedom allowing players to choose from an arsenal of weapons and combat playstyles, as well as dynamic action including dodge and roll, this game enables players to enjoy gameplay even more by tailoring to their unique tactics.
with expansion packs
The two subsequent expansion packs, Heart of Thorns™ and Path of Fire™, are by no means less engaging than the original content. The expansion packs offer news areas for exploration, stronger enemies, as well as new systems and weapons to help characters develop, proving that Guild Wars 2 has endless potential for constant evolution of its universe and playability.
