NCsoft recently announced a release date for the developer’s first major addition to Guild Wars 2, ‘Shadow of the Mad King,’ with information on new activities, four new Halloween-themed acts and more.
Launching on October 22nd, Shadow of the Mad King for Guild Wars 2 will (partially) form NCsoft’s Halloween celebration event, with “decorations, new mini-games, new dynamic events, and more” promised.
“Despite the celebrations,” the team writes, “there are those who dread the coming of Halloween and all that it may bring, for it is the time of year when barriers between the realms are weakest.”
Four Halloween-themed acts will begin on October 22nd, and last until October 31st.
Your favourite in-game retailer, Evon Gnashblade at the Black Lion Trading Company, will also have new Halloween items available to purchase, with “Halloween costumes and new transforms that will allow you to play Costume Brawl with fellow costumed players.”
Paid five-person PvP tournaments will also run during the Shadow of the Mad King events, with promises of better prizes than normal tournaments:
“Participating teams will earn qualifier points that will allow them to compete in future, larger tournaments. Tournament tickets can be earned from winning normal tournaments or purchased in the Gem Store.”
Lastly, “new events, jumping puzzles, bosses, mini-dungeons, and achievements” will appear in “a variety of maps.”
