New Events Set To Rock Guild Wars 2 Beginning With ‘Origins of Madness’

/ 4 years ago


NCSOFT and ArenaNet have just given gamers around the world their first taste of where the living world of Tyria is headed in 2014. In a teaser for Origins of Madness, the year’s first release coming 21st January, the game makers offer a glimpse of incredible new adversaries and the beginning of an epic end to a storyline that began more than a year ago.

Beginning with Origins of Madness, Guild Wars 2 players will find themselves pitted against the forces of arch-villain Scarlet Briar. The sinister sylvari engineer has worked behind the scenes throughout 2013, wreaking havoc through her minions and clockwork creations. Her exact motivations remain a mystery, for now. As players will see in the Origins of Madness teaser video (see below), Scarlet will unleash a brand-new mechanical monstrosity on the living world of Tyria: the Twisted Marionette! A gigantic robotic weapon of mass destruction, the Twisted Marionette can only be stopped by a concerted effort on the part of players. Scarlet’s machinations have also unearthed another threat in Bloodtide Coast. The Great Jungle Wurm is a huge multi-headed creature so powerful that only an army of players can challenge it.
