Guild Wars 2: The Icebrood Saga’s Final Episode Begins November 17 With "Truce"
The Icebrood Saga’s final story arc will kick off in Guild Wars 2 on November 17. The first chapter of a planned four is titled Truce, and it will tell the story of a dangerous enemy that stirs beneath the surface of Tyria.
A new trailer for the Episode shows off new Dragon Response Missions, new weapons and skins, and more allied factions that will join in on the fight. You’ll also have a new Dragon Slayer Mastery that provides boons and abilities to help overcome the threat posed by your new enemies. Primordus, the Elder Dragon of Fire and Conflagration, looks to be the main foe this time around, and is said to be even more powerful than Jormag and the icebrood. You can check out the brief trailer below.
The fifth Episode in The Icebrood Saga is called Champions, and it will be told through four different chapters. This first one is labeled Truce, and arrives in just a few weeks. The next chapter won’t hit Guild Wars 2 until January 2021 and is called Power. All four chapters will be free for anyone who purchased Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire.
This news is likely to come as a bright spot for fans of Guild Wars 2, as it was recently announced that the upcoming Steam release was indefinitely delayed. The team is hard at work on “crafting Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons with the high quality you expect and deserve,” and doesn’t have the resources to focus on a Steam release at the same time. This means it could be quite a while before Tyria ever sees the light of day on Valve’s popular platform.
Valve’s platform is know to boost the population of games that launch on it – something that Guild Wars 2 could definitely benefit from. It’s expansions and new content are always top notch, but its community has started to dwindle eight years after its initial release. However, with a new Episode on the way, End of Dragons on the horizon, and an eventual Steam release, hopes are high that Guild Wars 2 will continue to be one of the most engaging MMORPGs on the market.
Guild Wars 2: The Icebrood Saga’s epic conclusion begins on November 17 with Truce.
