Guild Wars 2 Reveals Plans For For Future Expansions, Content Shifting To Smaller And Faster Updates
Prepare for smaller, more frequent content drops.
As we progress further into 2023, the folks at ArenaNet have been taking a look at how they can improve not just Guild Wars 2's expansion rollouts, but also address things that generally take a back seat – such as quality-of-life improvements. Today, they dropped a post explaining their plans for the future of the MMORPG game noting things like providing more support for popular game modes, improvements to core gameplay systems, delivering new features, and the all-important story updates.
The basic gist for players is that in order to accomplish this, the team is changing how expansions work. Rather than waiting two to four years to get a big expansion, players will be getting smaller expansions on a more frequent basis. The price of these expansions will be “slightly reduced” and in addition new content for the expansion will be dropped in quarterly updates.
To kick things off, the next chapter of End of Dragons will be dropping on February 28. Detective Rama will be back to travel to a new location in Cantha with players taking on a deadly enemy in the Jade Sea. Before that though, a balance update will drop tomorrow, along with adjustments to WvW objective rewards, and a Chromium Embedded framework upgrade. March 28 will be the return of the Super Adventure Festival. In April the DirectX 11 upgrade will be complete, and May will see more balancing.
