Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns Expansion Announced

by on January 26, 2015

ArenaNet has announced the first expansion to Guild Wars 2, titled Heart of Thorns.

The biggest feature is the new Mastery system, which allows you to unlock and explore new abilities for max level characters, and a brand new Specialisations system that gives them access to traits, skills and unique mechanics that transform their profession into something entirely new.

The story content, taking place in the Maguuma Jungle, sees players face off against the Elder Dragon Mordremoth and his minions. It also sees the return of legendary hero Rytlock, who has gained an all new set of powers.

A new profession was also announced, the heavily armoured Revenant who is equipped with the otherworldly powers of the Mists. Heart of Thorns will also add a new Stronghold PvP mode, a new Borderlands map for the world vs. World content and the Guild Halls for you and your friends.

There’s been no word on release date or price yet, but you can probably expect it in the next few months.
