Guild Wars 2 kicks off their Halloween update today with the Shadow of the Mad King update. Act one which starts today is the first of four acts which end on October 31st. For a limited time special Halloween themed items that grant special skills are available. Everyone should take the time to pick up their free pair of Devil's Horns before they vanish.
500 years ago, a tyrannical Krytan king was slain by his own people, those who had suffered greatly during his reign of lunacy. It is said that this king’s body was chopped into pieces, and his spirit was banished to the Underworld, but that he can return to the mortal realm for just one day a year: on Halloween.
Of course, that’s just an old folktale. Isn’t it?
It’s been 250 years since the last alleged sighting of Mad King Thorn’s spirit, and today, Halloween is safely celebrated by children (and merchants) all across Tyria.
But! Strange energies are rising under the autumn moon. Is there perhaps some truth to the old stories? Do you dare to find out what’s really going on?
