Guild Wars 2 Gets Lost Shores Update And A One-Time World-Changing Event

It’s also opening its doors up to your friends for free…

NCSOFT are bringing the second major content update for the hugely popular MMORPG Guild Wars 2 within three months of its release this week. The Lost Shores is set to arrive on 15th November and brings new features to the game, highlighted by a multi-stage one-time event that is set to forever change the world of the game!

The Lost Shores update is a mini-expansion worth of new content, bringing an unprecedented amount of new areas to explore, with new challenges and goals.

In addition to the improvements ‘across the entirety of the game’, NCSOFT list these to look forward to:
A mysterious zone to explore, accessible to all players regardless of level
A challenging new dungeon to conquer
A new PvP map set within a Kodan dojo
New gear to acquire, ranging from additional weapons skins to item enhancements to an additional tier of items between Exotic and Legendary.
Crafting updates including a new resource to harvest and 200 new recipes

It’s also been announced that there’ll be a one-time in-game event set to ‘forever leave its mark on the world of Tyria’ starting on 16th November until 19th November. And just what is this world-changing event? Nobody’s quite sure! But it looks like a new storyline in which players can battle the Ancient Karka on a brand new map. You can read more about the events here.

And that’s not all, to make it easier for friends to share the Lost Shores update, Guild Wars 2 will be opening its doors for a refer-a-friend trial period. As of now, players who have already purchased the game will be able to invite up to three friends to join a free trial period from 15th-18th November.

Guild Wars 2 is available now for PC.
