Guild Wars 2 Heart of Thorns Launch Trailer Released
AreaNet has recently unveiled a launch trailer for an upcoming beta event for Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns at TwitchCon. Heart of Thorns is the first expansion pack for Guild Wars 2 and it will be released on October 23, 2015.
The elder dragon Mordremoth has awakened. Its forces, known as the Mordrem, have begun to move, seeking to not only bring the sylvari race under the dragon's control, but also to establish a hold on Tyria. Players that seek to confront the jungle dragon must venture into the Heart of Maguuma, a new jungle region with an emphasis on verticality. There, they will need to contend with the Mordrem and other dangerous animals that lurk in the jungle.
It has also been announced that the final Heart of Thorns Beta Weekend event will begin on October 2, 2015 at 8 PM BST, and run until October 5 at 7:59 PM BST. This event is available to all players that pre-purchased the expansion. Raids will be playable at this event, players can create fully geared level 80 characters with any profession, try out new elite specializations, and even fight new bosses.
