Look alive as the spooky and fantastical creatures come to life inside the Mad Realm of Tyria! This morning, ArenaNet announced that one of Guild Wars 2's most celebrated and time honoured traditions - the Shadow of the Mad King - will be returning on October 16th and can be reside until November 6th.

While ghosts stroll alongside mortals, this year's festival includes:

Reaper's Rumble: Playable for the very first time because the original GW2 Halloween celebration - it really is a fast-paced PvP format where players compete to recover pumpkins and spawn hordes of skeletons to attack the enemy team's base.
Mad King's Raceway: New this year, the track was built around the identical map as Reaper's Rumble that showcases the star mount of the present Living Story, the Roller Beetle.
Three new weapons: These took inspiration from real planet horror tropes: a syringe that functions as a dagger known as The Cure, a lightning rod players can wield as a sword known as Soul Conductor, and also a butcher knife players can use as an axe named Revenge.
Players that have completed Episode 3 of Season 4 with the living story can delve in to the ancient rivalry involving Mad King Thorn and Palawa Joko by means of a brand new collection achievement.
Further particulars around the festival could be found right here and accompanying assets attached.

This Halloween content material is readily available free to all players. For the complete Guild Wars 2 knowledge, players can buy GW2 Gold at
