ArenaNet’s MMORPG Guild Wars 2 was launched back in 2012, and if the constant updates wasn’t enough to feed your need for more content, you will be pleased to learn that the developers have recently announced the game’s first expansion pack – Heart of Thorns. The expansion’s release has yet to be determined and appears to have been in the works for the past few years now.

Heart of Thorns will allow gamers to explore the Heart of Maguuma, a brand new jungle area that is split up into three distinct biomes, which according to ArenaNet is one of the largest areas they have ever built. The expansion will also introduce the Mastery system which is an endgame, account-based PVP progression system.

Basically as players explore the map, complete missions and other activities, they will be able to earn themselves mastery points which they can then use to spend on abilities that will apply to characters in your PVP account. There will also be a Specialization system introduced that will give existing classes access to new skills and weapons.

A new Revenant profession has also been introduced along with new maps and PVP modes. Last but not least there was also mention of a Guild Hall in which guild members are able to meet up in game to discuss missions or to socialize. In the meantime if you’re curious about the expansion, you can head on over to its website for more details, or check out the announcement trailer in the video above.
