Guild Wars 2: Countdown to launch Guild Halls
On October 23 at 12:01 AM Pacific Time (UTC-7), Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns will go live!
First you’ll take territory from the enemy and guard it, then repair it together with your guild by gathering resources and earning favor to unlock upgrades and buildings. Then you can begin decorating it to make it a place everyone will be proud to call home.
Link Hughes says, “I remember sitting in the office, watching the expansion announcement stream from PAX South. When Guild Halls were announced and the audience screamed for what felt like eight solid seconds, I got really excited, and a little bit nervous. No pressure, right? Then when the event was over, I got a text message from my old guild leader saying, ‘I went into the announcement skeptical, and came out hyperventilating!’ Then I was just grinning.”
Dara Potocska remembers working on the guild arena. “There was a bug that let the turrets in the arena kill each other,” she says. “I made a test map in which the arena was filled with nothing but turrets, and they were constantly attacking each other. They destroyed each other in a death match. There were no survivors.”
