Guild Wars 2 ushers in the Festival of the Four Winds

Guild Wars 2 is kicking off the Festival of the Four Winds today, as Lion's Arch continues on the road to recovery.


Some time has passed since Guild Wars 2 concluded its 'Living World' story arc. And though Lion's Arch remains on the road to recovery, Tyria's races are ready to celebrate the Festival of the Four Winds with an all-new update.

The Zephyrites return to Lion's Arch, with Queen Jennah looking to help raise funds for the fallen central hub through some charity Gauntlets and Boss Blitzes. Players can also take a hot-air balloon ride to Divinity's Reach, visit the reopened Crown Pavillion, or participate in the Sanctum Sprint. The event culminates with the return of Lion's Arch services.

Players that walk around Lion's Arch may notice a distinct Chinese flavor adorning the city. That's because Arenanet is celebrating Guild Wars 2's recent release in China. The Chinese, who received GW2 on May 15, are set to receive this new content later this week.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. 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?
