Watch Guild Wars 2 Heart of Thorns Expansion Launch Trailer

Not much longer to wait.


ArenaNet has released the launch trailer for Guild Wars 2's first expansion, Heart of Thorns, which launches in just under a month on October 23. Check out the video below, which appears to use in-game assets instead of a more Blizzard-style CG approach. Whatever the case, people are loving it.

As previously announced, Heart of Thorns adds a new Maguuma Jungle zone, an expanded progression system, more abilities (such as hang-gliding), a new Revenant profession, guild halls, and a new PvP Stronghold mode, among other things.

The base Guild Wars 2 game recently became free, but Heart of Thorns is a paid expansion available by itself or through various bundles. Pre-purchasing any version of Heart of Thorns grants you guaranteed access to all beta weekend events leading up to release.

In other recent news, ArenaNet has announced the voice talent for Heart of Thorns, which includes Destiny and Uncharted actor Nolan North. He plays the expansion's main antagonist, Mordremoth.
