SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,607MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

ArenaNet has released the first information about the first monthly update. Called "Flame & Frost", the event is set to go live on January 28th and will feature guesting, an improved achievement system and laurels, upgrades and new items in the Gem Store.

We’re adding a new rotation of daily achievements to add variety and encourage you to explore the open world. You’ll get different achievements every day of the week and a new achievement tracker in the UI to make it easier to track your progress.

Check out the teaser site on the main Guild Wars 2 page.

    Anet keep on delivering! Not seen this many new stories and adventures since...  actually, cant think of any MMOs that month on month bring big events and updates like this. Good job.

    So Laurels are obtained by achievements which will get you ascended gear and infusions, I wonder how many and that's cool that we can now get this stuff pve and wvw. No need to do dungeons anymore. I think that's what most people where complaining about, which shouldn't make it that much of an gear grind no more...I think.

    I am curious though how this will be spinned by the people on this forum.

    I might get banned for this. - Rizel Star.

    This is good news when a company decides to work on the exsisting game and move it forward when what they have is working and right Instead of adding new to it and not fixing whats there. Lets hope they stick to there guns and keeps making what they have better before they add more to the world.

    To me I enjoy gaming I dont play to be uber I play to have fun. If a game is not fun to me guess what I move on and play something else till I find one that is. When I find that great game and not sure if in my life time there will be one I hope it has everything I want in an mmo.

    But i thought you had stopped playing the game ages ago. You remind us of that fact in practically every post. What would you want WvW progression or progression of any kind in a game you dislike so much? Time to move on to other games, man.

    I agree but reading it I can't tell if they are adding content or not at the same time, at least for this description...

     

    The sky falls and the ground shakes in the lands of the north. Charr and norn refugees crawl from the wreckage of their homes in the Wayfarer Foothills and Diessa Plateau, struggling to find shelter in the south. The call goes out for volunteers to assist the victims in this time of need, when earth and sky seem to have become the enemy…

    Flame and Frost: Prelude is the prologue to a multi-stage narrative that will bring big changes to Guild Wars 2 in the months to come.

     

    Or you just mean adding new zones or something?

    Zeus is right they are adding to the game by adding new events to the existing world and making it more for players to want to go to those ares and play there again.

    So some dailies and a new currency grind. Hmmm. Well better than valor points and motes of harmony I suppose.

    I don't hate the game, I'm just disappointed. I will give it another chance when they implement WvW progression (and fix culling).

    Oh I took adding more to the world as in adding new events to the existing world but ok, gotcha I'm sure I was wrong (not being sarcastic seriousely).

     

    So it just answered my question Yes
