The final week of Guild Wars 2‘s Welcome Back celebration is upon us! You can log in to unlock the fifth chapter in the current season of the Living World, but that’s not too surprising; because it’s the current chapter, you’ve only needed to log in since it went live to get it for free anyway.

Still, you might want to check into the game anyway, to pick up five free Transmutation Charges from the Gem Store, a deal that runs from April 23-29. Also, as in previous weeks, AreanNet has a bunch of community events on the schedule, including an episode playthrough with the devs on Twitch at noon Pacific on Tuesday and partner streams throughout the week.

Learn more about the schedule of events for the week on the Guild Wars 2 site.

  1. Such a boring dissapointing title. Pay attention to details, and you can see how it’s a half backed scam. Can’t believe people subbed to this for so long.

      • He also questioned how anyone could have subbed to this game for so long, when it has never been a pay to play game. Furthermore suggests the whole thing is a scam, when everything being offered is free. I wouldn’t be too concerned with what he/she said, as I get the feeling it was just flame bait.

      • Examples? I wrote for a MMORPG site and have three main articles on it (can’t post here for obvious reasons).
        My favorite highlights:
        Fake scenery. Ex: there’s a arched aqyaduct against some hills, you go up to it. You’d think you can run under arches, climb a bit off before physics push you down. Nope, simple invisible wall, and it’s a “airbrushed in” 2D image no, the lazy design. Besides ugly models,(worst character design, except for beast race, which odd from franchise that got famous for good humanoid based game). There are copy and paste spammed assets to flesh out a zone. Level one towns people become “ghosts, just by making the model white and transparent, and spamming them in every map… Which makes no sense, funnier, target one, and in your mini target avatar box it’s a fully fleshed model. They didn’t even bother rendering it…
