In the next Living Story update for Guild Wars 2, evil is afoot in the inner circles of Tyria’s power structure. Corruption is rife and Queen Jennah herself is threatened in The Head of the Snake, the fourth chapter in the third season of GW2’s Living Story.

In this installment, players will be tasked with uncovering the myriad sinister plots within the human capital of Divinity’s Reach and — by the looks of the trailer — potentially defending the city from an all-out assault. The new story chapter is also accompanied by a new raid wing, Bastion of the Penitent, which contains four new bosses.

The new content releases next Tuesday, Feb. 7. You’ll need a level 80 character to participate in the new content, but ArenaNet’s got you covered: There’s a 50% off sale on Heart of Thorns until the 8th, and that comes with a level 80 boost.
