Guild Wars 2 Path Of Fire Story Dev Diary

Posted on 06 Sep 2017

Guild Wars 2 is a game with a lot of lore. The new dev diary puts some emphasis on this, and how much effort goes into making the story believable and interesting. Even as writers we’re honestly surprised at how casually some questions (e.g. “is it believable if this character uses this weapon in this fight?”) are brought up by Guild Wars 2‘s team. We’d just ask if it was a cool weapon or not, and whether we could make it look more phallic. That’s why we’re not Guild Wars 2 developers.

Path Of Fire, the expansion for Guild Wars 2 is coming 22 September 2017 and is already available for pre-order.

Official Press Release

Today ArenaNet released the third and final video in its Dev Diary series for the upcoming Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire expansion.

The video takes a look at the story behind Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire and how the dev team approached building the expansion’s narrative in an area that players haven’t visited in 250 years. Players will head back to Elona and the Crystal Desert to grapple with the threat presented by Balthazar, the human god with fire and war, as discover what has occurred in the region in their absence. With the Elder Dragons still an ever-present threat, and a swath of destruction following the rogue human god south into the desert, Path of Fire represents a chance for players to face new challenges – and perhaps uncover the answers to questions from the past.
