Guild Wars 2 Ending Its ‘Living World Storyline’ With Origins of Madness
The finale is January 21.
Guild Wars 2, which has been telling its ‘living world’ story for roughly a year now, will finally be reaching its conclusion next week, ArenaNet has announced, reports Polygon.
The finale will be the Origins of Madness event, which will be exactly a week from now on January 21. It will pit players against longtime villain character Scarlet Briar, and introduce a variety of new threats for players to contend with, escalating and raising the stakes.
With the end of the Living World storyline, it is unclear if ArenaNet plans on returning for a potential return to the concept with a ‘second season’ for later this year, or if they will rescind on their earlier statements, and opt to offer traditional story based expansion packs for the game.
Guild Wars 2 has been a success for ArenaNet, and is one of the frontrunners in the MMORPG space along with perennial champ World of Warcraft and Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.
