ArenaNet has released details of its first major seasonal update to Guild Wars 2 since the wildly successful MMORPG launched in late August. The Hallowe’en themed expansion is called Shadow of the Mad King, and will go live on October 22.

Decorations will be strewn across Tyria, along with new mini-games, bosses, jumping puzzles, mini-dungeons, achievements and dynamic events, but on the weightier side, “an adventure in four acts” runs through October 31, when the “barriers between the realms are weakest”. The Black Lion Trading Company will offer a variety of holiday goods, and paid PvP tournaments will offer more significant prizes than usual, as well as handing out participation points to competiting teams, which will qualify them for future events.

Oh boy, here comes the pumpkin hat again…

 

Well, we know there wont be any ‘Mad King Says’ this time around, thanks to having sweet F/A emotes in the game. What will the new prize game be when Mad King Arrives I wonder?

Awww yeah! I’m glad they kept the festivities in the game like the original. Lion’s Arch is such a huge place now, it’ll be cool to see it decorated. =D
