ArenaNet announced today that on July 29th, The Dragon’s Reach: Part 1 will be released. This will mark the third installment of the Season 2 living story update, which will see new episodes released every two weeks.
Below is the teaser video published today with the press release.
In the trailer we see the continued spread of Mordremoth across Tyria in the form of his waypoint harassing vines. And, could that possibly be … do our eyes deceive us … Ritlock, what are you doing?!?!
The last part of the video leads us to believe that Ritlock is intending to lift the Foefire curse from Ascalon City. According to legend, that would only mean that he is the rightful king of Ascalon.
That’s theory one. The second theory we have is that in the very least, he is lifting the curse with Sohothin so that, whoever the king is, can lay the ghosts of Ascalon rest. This makes a logical leap in a different direction, one that assumes Ritlock knows who the king is.
More to come I’m sure. This will certainly set the message forums ablaze with speculation and dissection of lore. I, for one, am quite excited.
The official announcement can be found on the Guild Wars 2 website.
