'Guild Wars 2' Celebrates The Return of Annual Wintersday Event

While Guild Wars 2 adds a persistent world, it retains the unique characteristics of the original game, including a strong narrative, extensive instanced game play, an anti-grind design philosophy, and strong support for competitive play.

Guild Wars 2 redefines massively multiplayer online roleplaying games with visceral, action-oriented combat; a gorgeous, living world full of constantly evolving dynamic events; customizable personal storylines that are unique to each player; intense Player vs. Player combat between small teams or massive armies; and most importantly, a shared online world where players work together as allies instead of as rivals — all with no monthly subscription fee.

The holiday season is in full swing in Tyria as the Guild Wars 2 universe gears up to celebrate the return of its annual in-game event, Wintersday! ArenaNet invites you to join them in celebrating this beloved Tyrian holiday tradition from Dec. 12 – Jan. 2.

During this time, players will be able to enjoy the return of their favorite festive pastimes, including:

  • The Winter Wonderland jumping puzzle
  • Toypocalypse: Band together with other players to defend gift-bearing dolyaks against an onslaught of malfunctioning toys
  • Tixx’s Infinirarium: Enter and help the jolly Toymaker Tixx prepare to share the wonder of Wintersday with all of Tyria
  • Bell Choir: Take center stage and make beautiful music to celebrate the season
  • Snowball Mayhem: Gather as many gifts as possible in this PvP snowball fight

In addition to the above, players can look forward to a variety of returning and new rewards. The Wintersday content is free to all players.
