We’ve known for a little while that ArenaNet has been planning a big November update. Forum posts in red have all but stated that the reason Halloween couldn’t be extended for those affected by Hurricane Sandy was because Bellevue was planning yet another major update for November 15th. Here it is!
The Lost Shores
Something stirs in the Sea of Sorrows…
Unravel a mystery of monstrous proportions in The Lost Shores, a massive one-time world event that will change Tyria forever!
For those that aren’t up on their Tyrian geography, the Sea of Sorrows is the large body of water bound by Kryta to the north, the Southern Shiverpeaks to the east, and Maguuma to the west. Here’s a helpful map.
ArenaNet has also thrown out some screenshots to with the unveiling.
While it is too early to say what, exactly, the new content, we here at GWI can say that there is a currently unnamed elder dragon. Known for now as the Deep Sea Dragon, it is the reason that the Krait and Quaggan have been pushed from their oceanic homes to the shores of Tyria. What are your thoughts on what The Lost Shores update may be about? Let us know in the comments!
