queens jubilee

Guild Wars 2‘s next major update is right around the corner, and this time we’re going to be seeing a bit of a celebration across Tyria– complete with hot air balloon rides! Queen’s Jubilee begins August 6th and is a celebration of ten years of Queen Jennah’s rule in Divinity’s Reach. Players will be able to join the festivities by hot air balloon and take part in an opening ceremony, a race course involving lighting torches, conquering of a new mini-zone, and the Queen’s Gauntlet– a special arena featuring increasingly-difficult boss fights. As always, there are plenty of rewards to grab in this event.

The following features will also be added with this update: an account-wide currency wallet, the ability to queue up for competitive PvP matches solo, bonus rewards for dungeons, champion loot updates, a new mini-game rotation system, permanent finishers, and more. For all the details, check out ArenaNet’s updated information page.
