Guild Wars 2 Heart of Thorns Season 3 screenshot

After an entire year of basically no content outside of raids and cash-shop items, it appears that ArenaNet has finally awoken from their slumber and are now once again working on the long-awaited Season 3 of the Living Story.

As you'll see in the trailer below, things have definitely not calmed down since the events in Heart of Thorns as there appears to be a new adversary on the rise, one that does not share a direct link with the great dragons. Do be warned before watching, however, as there are some Heart of Thorns spoilers in there, though given how basic the plot is I have little doubt that many of you could guess that the bad guy loses in the end. Here's the video:


Season 3 of the Living Story launches on July 26th with Episode 1: Out of the Shadows.

If you would like to give it a try, but have never even played Guild Wars 2, you'll be happy to know that the original game is currently free-to-play with very little restrictions on the gameplay side of things. Simply go to the official website, make yourself an account, and you'll be smacking around ghosts in no time.

On the other hand, if you're interested in purchasing Heart of Thorns and playing through the Season 3 of the Living Story, you're also in luck as HOT is currently 50% off, and best of all, it comes with a free level 80 character boost if you want to catch up to your friends as soon as possible.

Have fun!
