'Guild Wars 2' The Shadow of the Mad King Event Kicks Off Next Week

by Rainier on Oct. 10, 2018 @ 8:44 a.m. PDT

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.


One of Guild Wars 2’s most celebrated and time honored traditions – the Shadow of the Mad King – will be returning on October 16th and will be live until November 6th.

While ghosts walk alongside mortals, this year’s festival includes:

  • Reaper’s Rumble: Playable for the first time since the original GW2 Halloween celebration – it’s a fast-paced PvP format where players compete to recover pumpkins and spawn hordes of skeletons to attack the enemy team’s base.
  • Mad King’s Raceway: New this year, the track was built on the same map as Reaper’s Rumble that showcases the star mount of the current Living Story, the Roller Beetle.
  • Three new weapons: These took inspiration from real world horror tropes: a syringe that functions as a dagger called The Cure, a lightning rod players can wield as a sword called Soul Conductor, and a butcher knife players can use as an axe called Revenge.
  • Players who have completed Episode 3 of Season 4 of the living story can delve into the ancient rivalry between Mad King Thorn and Palawa Joko through a new collection achievement.

Additional details on the festival can be found here. This Halloween content is available free to all players. For the full Guild Wars 2 experience, players can purchase the second expansion, Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire, at here.
