Guild Wars 2 ‘Origins of Madness’ Living Story update goes live today

Posted on January 21, 2014 AT 07:02am

ArenaNet is set to release its first living story update of 2014 for Guild Wars 2 today, titled Origins of Madness.

This is the first of four story updates that will complete season one of the living story. The update adds two new world bosses to the game. The first sees players journey to the mountains of Lornar’s Pass to defeat Scarlet’s amassing armies and the Twisted Marionette, her titanic new clockwork creation.

The second boss is found on Bloodtide Coast and will become a permanent world boss after the update. Scarlet’s mysterious machines have awoken The Great Jungle Wurm, a huge beast with three heads, which must be cut off at the same time to prevent them growing back.

ArenaNet has previously promised that a feature heavy update is planned for release following the final living story release.
