Guild Wars 2 gets it's first expansion - Heart of Thorns announced

Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns has been announced as the first expansion for the popular subscription free ArenaNet MMO.

The expansion was announced at PAX South 2015 over the weekend and is set to offer new training opportunities beyond level 80, all new quests, enemies and player professions.

The new main features of Heart Of Thorns are:

  • An entirely new area in the Heart Of Maguuma made up of three layers: Core, Root and Canopy. This area is filled with new content, bosses, creatures and events.
  • An ability to Hanglide and travel on wind currents.
  • A new Mastery system that's Account wide, designed to add greater depth to your character. 
  • A new WvW Borderland and significant improvements to the game mode and mechanics.
  • A new Specialization system designed to change your class completely. Ranger's can specialize into Druid's. 
  • A new PvP game mode called Stronghold where Guilds can fight it out to be crowned the best.
  • Guild Halls to act as a hub for your friends. 
"Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns is the first expansion for Guild Wars 2. Founded on the idea that the journey is the goal, the Heart of Thorns expansion continues the Guild Wars 2 tradition of challenging the conventions of MMOs to fulfill the promise of what online worlds should be." said ArenaNet

No release date has been announced for the expansion at time of writing.
