April Fools: Guild Wars 2 gets Bobble Head update

I knew Tyrian warriors got large heads from defeating Scarlet Briar, but not like this! NOT LIKE THIS!


You might have guessed that the warriors of Tyria would get inflated egos and giant heads after defeating Scarlet Briar. And indeed it's true, in quite a literal way. Guild Wars 2 has been updated today to give everyone giant Bobble Heads.

"If players like characters that have heads, logic dictates that they'll love characters with freakishly large heads, which is why we've added 200% more cranium to all player characters," reads the official announcement.

That's science, kids. Use your large head to taunt fellow Tyrians, rock some comically-giant cosmetic head gear, or dunk a basketball! Ok, maybe not that last thing. Tyria doesn't have a basketball court, as far as I know.

Guild Wars 2's Bobble Head mode will be engaged upon your next login.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
