Uncover The Secrets Of The Obscure In Guild Wars 2
ArenaNet and NCSOFT have announced the fourth expansion for Guild Wars 2. Secrets of the Obscure will be available from the 22nd of August 2023.
The fourth expansion to the critically acclaimed MMORPG features new thrilling adventures revolving around the mysterious floating Wizard’s Tower above Tyria, and new additions to gameplay mechanics to further improve Guild Wars 2.
Secrets of the Obscure finally reveals the secrets of the Wizard’s Tower, an idea the team said they had been considering for many years. Players will get the opportunity to explore new areas, starting with a climb through the Skywatch Archipelago. The floating islands hold their own challenges – including but not limited to attacks from the demonic race of the Kryptis. A third new map will be added with a free content update in the future.
The Wizard’s Tower will function as a hub for adventurers to team up and serves as a central location for main characters and events. Players can join a new band of treasure hunters, called the Astral Ward, to help protect the world from the Kryptis invasion.
The game also adds new gameplay aspects to existing features. The Skyscale mount can be obtained easier within the expansion, and players who train their mount in the special tack and the tack from Path of Fire will unlock additional abilities. Additionally, the nine professions will gain the ability to equip elite specialisation weapons. This unlocks new gameplay and build options so you can further customise your dream character.
Guild Wars 2: Secrets of the Obscure can be pre-purchased now, the pre-purchase edition contains a bundle of bonus items as a reward. Visit the official website to find out more.
