Guild Wars II getting new update next week

Tower of Nightmares launching October 29; introduces new rewards like the Antitoxin Spray and new healing skills.

ArenaNet today announced a new update for its massively multiplayer online role-playing game Guild Wars II called Tower of Nightmares.

The free content update will go live on October 29, two days before Halloween. It will be the third content update ArenaNet has released for Guild Wars II in October alone.

In Tower of Nightmares, players will find new trouble brewing in the ever-changing world of Tyria –a menace with dark ties to previous storylines. Working in secret, the sinister reptilian krait have created the Tower of Nightmares, a weapon unlike anything ever seen in Tyria. Players will join forces to discover the secret to attacking the Tower and uncover clues as to the identity of the krait’s mysterious new ally…

Tower of Nightmares introduces new rewards like the Antitoxin Spray and new healing skills that allow players to cleanse themselves and nearby friends of poisons. Gamers who are able to defeat the krait will be rewarded with a Krait Obelisk Shard.

An early look at the Tower of Nightmares content will be available through an ArenaNet livestream on October 28 at 12 noon PDT through Twitch.

ArenaNet also announced today that content for the Halloween-themed Blood and Madness update will be available through November 11.

I am interested in the game still but wonder if they fixed the camera issues finally and with dungeons do they nerf them constantly like WOW does to content or do they leave it alone ? Also is there ever going to be raid type content ? I see no mention of anything like this now and no those large anyone can join world events are not something that I want to replace raiding so ...

Judging by the fact that the Krait is holding new Nightmare Weapon skins tells me the mysterious ally is probably Scarlet. Somehow I have a feeling she'd fit right in with the Mad King's family tree. >_>

You can do world missions. If you like action you can also do rated battlegrounds or for more action you can set arena teams with your friends(Skype). YOou can try to finish achievements ^^ and as you can see this game gets update every two week or one month.

@jimdove2 So I guess all the people I see in WvWvW all the time and the queues for full borderlands somehow = 'nobody could be arsed to play it."

Here's a hint. Just because you don't like something, doesn't automatically mean everyone else feels the same way.
