“The Living World in Guild Wars 2 is ArenaNet’s official term for changes to the game intended to bring the world of Guild Wars 2 to life. Each major game update includes NPCs, events, and sometimes new instances that tell the story of Tyria’s ongoing evolution. Although most of the Living World content has been temporary, these updates also have included permanent changes to the in-game world.
Initially, Living World releases were a mix of new story and new features. More recently, new features have been dropped from Living World updates and are now bundled together in releases like the April 2014 Feature Pack.”
Guild Wars 2 Living World Season 2 takes place after the defeat of Scarlet Briar and the destruction of Lion’s Arch, one of the game’s major cities. Players will be able to encounter a new foe in the form of an Elder Dragon which has awoken in the west, while players must also deal with the fallout of Lion’s Arch.
