Guild Wars 2’s newest living world episode seems to be grabbing the MMO community’s attention in a way that the season so far hasn’t. It is garnering quite a bit of praise, winning over even some of the game’s grumpier contingents. “In recent episodes I’ve gotten used to groaning or shaking my head at some of the sloppy dialog, in-jokes and all-round loose writing,” wrote MMO blogger Bhagpuss. “This time, so far, there’s been none of that. Everyone sounds like they’re taking it seriously for once, which doesn’t mean there’s no humor and no jokes but that those there are seem to derive — fairly convincingly — from the characters and the situation. It’s a relief.” Jeromai is equally effusive: “That’s perhaps the highest praise I can produce for whatever Anet is doing right in this episode, that I’m more happy to be playing and experiencing the content, than complaining or … [Read more...] about Global Chat: Does Guild Wars 2’s newest episode reach for the stars?

Get Guild Wars 2 Path of FireFinally! You can play the newest episode of Guild Wars 2’s Living Story! And by “play” we of course mean “attempt to play before an error hits you,” because that was unfortunately affecting a large number of players through yesterday. Anecdotal evidence points to the problems being focused around story instances and new zones, which you may recognize as being some of the biggest components to this particular update and the exact thing that players would be rushing to experience. The team is working on fixing the many bugs and issues that have cropped up, including one redirection from a quest’s intended directions to send players directly to Desert Highlands, hopefully bypassing a disconnection issue with the quest “Forewarned is Forearmed.” However the team is aware that this didn’t fix all of the issues, nor did it even fix all of the issues with that particular quest. So while these bugs will no doubt … [Read more...] about Guild Wars 2 deals with disconnections and progress-killing bugs for its latest episode
Guild Wars 2 has been doing a great job releasing episode after episode for four seasons of the Living World. Unfortunately, Episode 3 of the Living World Season 4 will be slightly delayed according to a recent forum post by game director Mike Zadorojny. “The Living World Team currently is hard at work preparing Episode 3 of Living World Season 4. We’re excited about how it’s shaping up, but wanted to give you a heads up that the release date will be a little outside our normal release cadence.” According to Zadorojny, the slight delay will allow them to maintain the quality of each episode. “With the amount of gameplay and breadth of content in Living World, we noticed that we had an opportunity to make some adjustments to how we approach developing each episode that will help us hit our quality standards more consistently,” says the game director. “This logistical change has had some short-term “cost” in time, but will provide … [Read more...] about Guild Wars 2 Game Director Announces Slight Delay In The Next Episode Of The Living World
Get Guild Wars 2 Path of FireYou might have noticed it’s Tuesday, and there’s been no big trailer drop for the next Guild Wars 2 living world episode. That’s behind schedule if expected, given datamining, but ArenaNet has now acknowledged the delay all the same. “The Living World Team currently is hard at work preparing Episode 3 of Living World Season 4,” ArenaNet’s Mike Zadorojny writes through the community team on the official forums. “We’re excited about how it’s shaping up, but wanted to give you a heads up that the release date will be a little outside our normal release cadence.” If that looks like a fancy way of saying the episode is late, welp, have a gold star. But there’s a reason: “Our key focus while creating the Living World experience is the quality bar we’ve set for ourselves for each episode. With the amount of gameplay and breadth of content in Living World, we noticed that we had an … [Read more...] about The next episode of Guild Wars 2’s living world season has apparently been delayed
We’ve long known that Teldrassil will burn in World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth. We’ve also known for at least a decently long while that the Mag’har will join the Horde. But the latest beta build contains mined-out text hinting at what takes place during both. The former is largely what you would expect for various interactions, but the latter includes some surprising developments such as a pretty significant time skip and other… unexpected twists. (We’ll leave the details out in case you’d rather not be spoiled.) If you’re uninterested in the lore side of things, perhaps you’ll be interested in the various class and ability changes dug out from the latest build. Or maybe you’re just looking forward to War Mode, which gives you access to all of your PvP talents and a 15% experience boost in exchange for putting a metaphorical target over your head. You decide which of the above matters most to you, of course; perhaps the answer … [Read more...] about Newest World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth build includes broadcast text for Teldrassil and Mag’har recruitment
