'Guild Wars 2' The Icebrood Saga Episode Four Scheduled For Later This Month

by Rainier on July 14, 2020 @ 10:16 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.

Chapter four of Guild Wars 2’s ongoing story The Icebrood Saga arrives Tuesday, July 28, with the vast stirring of the ancient, magic-devouring Jormag, the Elder Dragon of Ice and Persuasion.

Titled Jormag Rising, the episode expands upon episode three’s Drizzlewood Coast map, offering an epic new meta event, and adding a new dimension to the area’s charr push-and-pull siege warfare mechanic. ArenaNet released a new trailer today that showcases what to expect on the next leg of the campaign between the charr Dominion and United Legions.

As the titanic wall of ice in the north begins to melt, opening the way to Bangar Ruinbringer’s Dominion armies, the Frost Legion begin to march from the shadowy depths of Jormag’s domain, while the dragon itself stirs as it consumes the ancient magics of Tyria. In addition to this thrilling story chapter, Jormag Rising adds and expands upon the existing gameplay and rewards found in The Icebrood Saga, including:

  • A brand new section of the Drizzlewood Coast to explore and control
  • A new, map-wide meta event that culminates with players directly confronting Jormag’s sinister power
  • New upgrades to the United Legions Waystation mastery that will grant new skills like the medi-zooka, a support tool for your allies in the heat of battle, and the ability to navigate the shifting intrigue of the charr conflict with a stealth action for mounts
  • Upgraded versions of two previously-released weapons: the Charged Stormcaller set and the Empowered Boneskinner set
  • A Frost Legion Infusion for your character to fit in with the chilly Frost Legion
  • An upgraded “shiver” emote
  • And more
