Last night Mike O’Brien posted on the official forums he had just signed off Living World season 3 and he does not have a release date yet. When I read this my heart sank a little. I was hoping for a decent patch today. But whilst sitting at work I decided to load up Reddit and wow was I pleased, today the LS3 release date was revealed to be 26th July ’16 by well-known gaming sites like MassivlyOP and Mmorpg. It has also been confirmed that we will see a release of a new fractal called: the chaos isles.
This has happened just in time as I myself was getting a little bored and now I should have plenty and I am really looking forward to continuing the HoT story! 😃
Fact – Episodes will also be paired with feature releases again so that everyone’s happy for updates, not just people who got their preferred play style updated, which means PvP and fractal updates too. ArenaNet aims to update every two to three months after that – The studio feels the episodes have more “story” for players to experience than before and more of an arc to each episode.
If you’re not up to speed on Guild Wars 2’s story, Season 3 will pick up after the death of Mordremoth, the dragon of plant and mind, and the massive burst of magical energy that exploded outward causing adverse effects all across Tyria and Maguuma. The alliance of nations that fought him is in a dire state, but the battle is far from over as an excess of that magical energy has settled on a bloodstone deep in the jungle. Hungry for power, several factions including The White Mantle, who hope to use the bloodstone to revive their dead god, are vying to siege control of the stone. Furthermore, a dragon egg from Glint that players recovered has also been touched by the magic, and questions abound about how that taint might what’s inside.
