Guild Wars 2 ‘Aftermath’ update goes live today

Posted on March 18, 2014 AT 06:53am

ArenaNet has announced that the conclusion of season one of Guild Wars 2′s living story will be released today, titled Battle for Lion’s Arch: Aftermath.

“The battle is over. Scarlet Briar is dead.  Tyria’s noblest warriors have done what they can to save the beloved city of Lion’s Arch,” the developer wrote.  ”But have they truly saved it?

“Word of Scarlet’s demise has spread like wildfire throughout the wards of the city and all across Tyria. The heroes of Lion’s Arch, the Lionguard, and Order forces have driven out the remainder of Scarlet’s armies, their morale and ranks shattered. All the while, the Breachmaker—Scarlet’s enormous airship looming over Sanctum Harbor—continues to drill uncontrollably without its pilot at the helm.

“One thing is certain – Tyria is scarred.  With today’s release, “Aftermath,” players will discover the depth of those wounds and the legacy left behind by Scarlet’s campaign of terror.”

You can check out the final cutscene and the death of the notorious Scarlet Briar in the video below. This doesn’t really need saying, but it doesn’t contain spoilers.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
