Even the ice dragon Jormag couldn't stop Guild Wars 2's heroes forever. Seattle was hit with a snowstorm earlier this week, knocking out power at ArenaNet for a time and delaying the latest update to the living story, which was supposed to go live on Tuesday.

Everything's back to normal now, however, and players can hop into the game to uncover the White Mantle's plots against the Queen of Kryta. The new chapter also brings a new raid wing, Bastion of the Penitent, as well as the usual mix of bug fixes and improvements, including a new legendary rifle and a massive rework of the Thaumanova Reactor fractal.

You can read about all those changes in the patch notes, or get the broad overview from the release page on the Guild Wars 2 site.
