Announcing the April 2014 Feature Pack!

ArenaNet is excited to announce our first release that focuses exclusively on in-game features: the April 2014 Feature Pack, which hits Guild Wars 2 on April 15!

As a release that focuses primarily on game systems, the April 2014 Feature Pack will include a sweeping range of new features—everything from new systems that change and upgrade the way you experience Guild Wars 2 to quality of life and balance updates that improve existing gameplay systems.

We’ve got a lot planned for this first feature pack; too much to talk about in one blog post or video. Between now and the April 15 release, we’ll announce and discuss each major feature contained within the April 2014 Feature Pack.

To start things off, we’d like to tell you all about our updates to the trait system, which include 40 new traits and a new horizontal progression system! We’ll also be discussing these changes and some other features tomorrow on our Ready Up livestream at noon Pacific Time, so make sure to tune in and check back each day on the Guild Wars 2 website for exciting announcements of our features over the coming weeks!
