ArenaNet is teasing the upcoming ‘Shadow of the Mad King’ Halloween event for Guild Wars 2 with a new trailer released this evening. The team has also launched a mini-site giving players a peek at the event’s schedule, which will consist of four separate acts, beginning on October 22 and concluding with Act 4 on October 31.
The Shadow of the Mad King event centers on the gruesome story of the tyrannical Mad King of Kryta, who met his end at the hands of his own people hundreds of years ago. The king’s body was dismembered and his spirit cast into the depths of the Underworld. As the story goes, the Mad King can return to the mortal world but once a year, and as one might expect, that single day falls upon Halloween.
Check out the teaser below and head on over here for a sneak peek at the full event schedule and other details.
