AreaNet has announced that the first major Guild Wars 2 patch will be hitting the market on October 22nd, and the Halloween themed patch, called Shadow of the Mad King, will decorate the entire world of Guild Wars 2 in special Halloween decorations.
“Halloween has a long history in Tyria, and in times past was always marked by the spirit of Mad King Thorn cavorting among the people unleashing his own brand of insanity,” wrote ArenaNet. “However, it’s been over 250 years since he was last seen, and for most people he is merely a figure of folklore. Despite this, rumours persist among the populace that something wicked this way comes.”
“Be prepared for an epic adventure in four acts starting 22nd October and running until 31st October.”
That’s all the information they given so far, but it sounds promising.
Guild Wars 2 came out rather recently, and it’s been met with incredible response by one and all. Our very own review gave it an impressive score of 9.5/10. Read the super-long, in-depth review here.
